A waterproof pant with waterproof socks! Use them for wading while fishing or getting in and out of your boat without getting wet. You can feel secure in the Kokatat Hydrus 3L Tempest Pant even if you take a swim.
A waterproof pant with socks! Are they safe? You bet. After extensive testing, Kokatat's test paddlers give them a big thumbs-up.
A wide, secure neoprene waistband with hook-and-loop tabs keeps water out, or you can mate these pants with a double-skirted top. You can feel secure even if you take a swim.
Hydrus material has a tough nylon outer layer with a durable water repellent (DWR) coating to shed water.
A proprietary polyurethane micro-porous inner coating quickly transfers water vapor away from your body.
The soft knit polyester inner layer feels good against the skin and is engineered to help with moisture transfer.
Gravel guards at the ankles help keep sand and debris out of your shoes or booties.
You'll get the best seal by tucking the anorak's inner skirt inside the pant's waistband. Tighten the pant's hook-and-loop tabs, then pull the sprayskirt tunnel up under the outer skirt and tighten it. A two-piece system is never as dry as a one-piece drysuit. I was just reading a thread on a boater forum this morning. One poster wrote something I think is spot on: "A 2 piece dry suit is not dry in my experiences, just manageably wet in the right uses."
