Extended version: An over skirt is an extra piece of fabric covering the chest and back and has a waist band at the bottom.
It helps keeps water that lands on the deck of the boat or on your head from making its way between the suit and spray skirt tunnel and ending up in your boat.

When washing, always follow sewn-in care instructions. With dry suits and dry tops Kokatat recommends using cold water, delicate cycle, gentle liquid soap, with no bleach or harsh chemicals, and high water volume, in a front loading machine.
Rinse well which may mean running it through a second time, inside out with no soap OR use a cold shower. Line dry. No, this is a myth! I want to send my garment back to Kokatat for a look-see, what should I do? Give us a call for a return number. Our customer service folks can answer your questions and give you all the info you need to start the return process. Can I trim my latex neck gasket?
Yes but Kokatat wrist gaskets are not designed to be trimmed - see below! Neck gaskets are designed to be trimmed to fit. If you feel as though you are getting less oxygen than normal when wearing the gasket, you may want to trim your gasket. Turn your garment inside-out, and notice the rings running parallel down the gaskets. Make all cuts in-between the rings. Be sure to closely visually inspect the trimmed edge for nicks; the cut must be straight. Nicks need to be trimmed out before you try it on.
Wrist gaskets are not designed to be trimmed: try stretching the wrist gaskets over a form can or bottle before using the garment. If you have questions, please call us before trimming your gasket. What size am I? Check our size charts on each product page or in our catalog, or see our Sizing page. If you fall into the upper range of the measurements listed on the size chart, we recommend that you purchase the next largest size.
If you are able, try to find a dealer and put on the garment before you buy! What is the difference between a wetsuit and a dry suit? Wetsuits keep a layer of water against your skin that must be warmed by your body heat. Your body works to warm the water which uses up energy that could have been spent on your sport. When hit with more cold water, you must warm it up again. Wetsuits perform poorly in the air and wind and have high evaporative heat loss. So if you use a wetsuit we highly recommend wearing a paddling jacket over it.
Dry suits keep water completely outside. You can also regulate the warmth of a dry suit system by adding or removing layers underneath. PDF Downloads.

Sadly, it was time to replace it. Nothing lasts forever, not even a well-made PFD. We think pretty differently about some aspects of sea kayaking than we did six years ago, so this was an opportunity to consider whether a different PFD might be better. We no longer try to stash in them everything we could possibly need if we were separated from our boats and far from shore. No more flares, signal mirrors, hefty first aid kits, and excessive food and water. The new MsFit Tour features a clever pouch above the lash tab so a knife can be tucked in.
