Dry Suits for Canoeing & Kayaking

Surface Drysuits & Immersion Suits for sale

These surface Drysuits are designed especially for canoeing, kayaking and kayak angling.

 

White Water Dry Suits (Surface Immersion Suits)

These suits represent the most efficient way of staying dry, whilst paddling (or swimming!) white water.

 

Whilst no technical outerwear will keep you 100% dry, these drysuits or surface immersion suits as they are also known are the best way to stay dry and comfortable on rivers, including whilst rolling in the toughest of rapids.

All these suits share several common features as standard, and should be present on a white water drysuit. Including breathable fabric, built in dry-feet, latex wrist/neck seals and a twin waist seal to be used in conjunction with a spraydeck.

Features and benefits of dry suits

 

No matter what your discipline, you should always dress for the conditions you will be paddling in and are likely to encounter. Let’s face it, if you want to enjoy the sport anywhere in the UK between October and April, you are going to be faced with cold, windy and rainy conditions, often all together! This does not mean you should pack you boat away when the nights start to draw in, it just means you need to reconsider what you are wearing, and top up your thermals and technical outer wear.


An increasingly popular choice is the dry suit, which is technically mislabelled, as kayaking and canoeing suits are in reality surface immersion suits, designed to keep you warm and dry, with all the features you need, but not designed for continuous complete submersion.


A surface immersion suit will not only keep you dry, but will also keep the wind off, the other main chill factor in the water sports environment. However, do not think that the suit in its own right will keep you warm, it is important that you team it with a good thermal layering system, not forgetting the socks!


Features to consider:


Zip There are two types of zip, brass and plastic. Although brass zips are seen as superior by many, the advanced plastic dry zip used on immersion suits are more than adequate for use in paddling. There is some debate on the comparable durability of the plastic zips against the brass zips, with the brass zip being seen as more durable. Having said this, all zips are replaceable, as are seals and feet. Plastic zips are easier to close and are more flexible. Both types will need care and maintenance, with many manufactures supplying a small amount of sample lubricant with their suits.


There are two common zip positions: across the shoulders and across the chest. The choice is about comfort and personal choice, rather than performance and durability.


Seals You will find that the majority of suits are fitted with latex seals, which are the driest type of seal and are ideal for those who do a lot of rolling or are taking on more extreme conditions. There are now some suits available with neoprene seals, which are not as dry but do offer much higher comfort levels for those planning to be on the water all day and not expecting to take a dip. You will find some water egress with these seals if a lot of time is spent in the water.


Feet All suits come with integrated sock, either latex or fabric. Latex socks are more delicate, and easier to hole, although they can easily be replaced. Fabric socks are a little more durable, but the material they are made from can delaminate over time and begin to leak. These are more difficult and expensive to replace. We recommended you wear a good pair of thermal socks inside your suit, and a pair of shoes on the outside and also take care not to stand on rough ground when wearing your suit.

 

 


Benefits of a Drysuit for Paddling:


Less Bulky when compared to a two-piece set of dry gear or a wetsuit, an immersion suit is less bulky. You will have fewer layers from waist seals around your middle, increasing comfort and manoeuvrability. Freedom of movement is also increased, as you will not have the restrictive bulk of a wetsuit to work against. The thermal layers under a dry suit are flexible and stretchy.


Warm and Dry if you take a dip in a two-piece outfit, there is always going to be seepage through the centre area, and you would get wet and cold in this area. Granted it will warm up again, but you will still be wet. The very nature of a wetsuit means if you do get wet you will be warm while you are active, but the minute you stop, for a rest break or waiting for a shuttle, you will begin to lose heat and get cold. Paddling when wet, even if you are warm can be uncomfortable.


Convenient Most suits are now fitted with convenience zips and some suits even have specific drop seats for girls, or they can invest in a sheewee, ideal for any outdoor activity not just paddling!


Fast changing into and out of a suit is easier and less time consuming that either a wetsuit, or two-piece set, cutting out “faff” and that inevitable car park exposure moment....
