Kokatat 2015 Line up!

Game-changer is the word being thrown around as I came out of my Kokatat Sales Meeting this afternoon.  I am so proud to represent this company.  We continue to raise the bar for technical paddlesports apparel and so we should as the industry leader for over 40 years!

Idol Drysuit with SwitchZip technology - pant only
For 2015 the #1 game-changer is the Idol Drysuit featuring the SwitchZip Technology.  This brings versatility and design to a whole new level.  A 2 piece drysuit that keeps you bone-dry, is easy to use, looks great and gives you the option of wearing just a drytop when you want or a full drysuit.

Next, we continue to keep our PFD's in the forefront of comfort, features and just plain "lookin good" .  The Poseidon is the culmination of years of feedback from our loyal consumers and our dedicated paddlesport professionals in the sea kayaking world.  This PFD has something for everyone.  It comes standard with 2 removable front, duplex pockets.  The fit is amazing with the adjustability that we have come to love in the Maximus/Maximus Primes with a traditional front zip.

 Add-ons are: Chest pocket, Belly pocket, Tactic pack and a QR (quick release) belt.  Also designed to work in collaboration with our Kokatat Touring Tow Tether.

One of my surprise favourite features is the hydration sleeve on the back of the PFD.  This PFD has it ALL!

Continuing in the PFD category, my personal favourite, the Maximus Centurion

I have LOVED the Maximus Prime for it's fit and comfort, the Maximus Centurion has all that and storage.  It is also compatible with the Poseidon Belly pocket that I mentioned above.

Men's X-Jacket (available in Light Gray)
Finally, Kokatat continues to create collections for all types of paddlers and SUP (Stand Up Paddle) paddlers are no exception.  SUP continues to be one of the fastest growing paddlesports markets and Kokatat has responded again in 2015.  X-Jacket is a 4-Way stretch, UPF 50+ , DWR coated lightweight jacket.  Designed for wind, spray and sun protection it comes in Men's and Women's sizing.  There is a rear stow pocket and a belt in the stow pocket so you can wear it around your waist when it is not needed.
