The older versions (Tempest pants) were made of a Tropos 3 layer waterproof breathable fabric. This year’s Tempest pants are made of Hydrus 3L fabric (their latest breathable fabric and the result of many years of research and development) and factory sealed seams. These dry pants will keep you dry if you stand in water to your waist for hours.

All products purchased at MEC are covered by the Rock Solid guarantee. As far as the difference in materials, the main differences between the Kokatat Hydrus dry suit and a Kokatat Gore-Tex® drysuit are the price (Hydrus costs less) and the rate of "breathability" (Gore-Tex® dry suits are still the most breathable).

Which boot you chose depends on the water temperature which you plan on kayaking in. Thickness of the neoprene will provide various insulation levels. Below are a few current boots MEC carries with 3mm and 5 mm thicknesses.

These pants do not have the usual reinforcements wadder specific pants would normally have.

Question

Does the Kokotat Tempest pants have a zipper? Trying to answer the call of nature while in the kayak could be a real challenge

On extended trips on the water, I often find myself unable to land for more than a couple of hours. With my present Farmer John wetsuit I can manage with a two way zipper. The Tempest pants without a zipper would be very awkward and not accomodating at all in the same situation.

I do like the option of a two piece suit ( pants and dry top) that allows more flexibility year round and with changing conditions. The cost of a full dry suit is prohibitive and too bulky most of the time and the wetsuit can be sweaty and hot.

Question

How long are the Tropos version guaranteed for?

My Tropos version is now leaking. They are a few years old but not used many times per year. Tropos did not have a lifetime guarantee as far as I remember so I guess there is no use returning them is there?
