Sizing notes

CHEST: Measure at the widest point. If the person is muscular, take a second measurement at the armpit area, across the upper chest. Use the larger of the two measurements. HIP: Place the tape around the hips and across the widest point of the buttocks. Make sure that all pockets are empty. INSEAM: This is also referred to as the “crotch to ankle bone” measurement. Have the person stand with legs straight and feet about 12” apart. Measure from the crotch area, snug up against the body, down to the ankle bone. SLEEVE LENGTH: Hold arm directly out to the side, parallel to the floor, palm down. Bend the elbow forward, stop hand in front of nose. Place the tape at the base of the neck, starting at the spine. Run tape along the arm, turn at the elbow, measuring to the wrist bone. WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part of the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality product from a top-notch company I just got into kayaking a few months back, and I did a lot of research on kayaking products to find out who makes quality products. I found that Kokatat is the premiere company in the kayak clothing and life vest world, and I decided to give this paddling jacket a try. This jacket is VERY well made--and I went over it with a fine-tooth comb when it arrived. I'm a big guy (6'1" & 220 lbs.) and I'm built broad in the shoulders and the chest. I found that the XL was a tad snug for me, so I ended up getting a XXL directly from Kokatat. The people are were friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. You cannot go wrong with this jacket. I also got a Kokatat Bahia Tour life vest from REI, and it was made with the same quality as this jacket. Keep this in mind if you're new to kayaking that the neck gasket will be extremely tight when you first try it on. This is as it is supposed to be; the neck gasket will stretch over time, and there are a number of useful videos online that will show you how to stretch it, or to trim it (there are actually a series of rings around the inside of the neck gasket to guide you) if necessary.

As to size - I need an XL for arm length and chest - but have a 34 inch waist - concerned the XL will have too much size in the waist area - any one with experience on this?

Asked by: Scot
Based on your arm and chest size, we suggest ordering the x-large. The lower section and skirt have hook & loop adjustability to fit paddlers with smaller waists.

Hi, is this jacket capable of taking multiple rolls & stay dry or is it more of a splash top than a dry top?  I have seen this model referred to elsewhere as a "dry top" which means to me it can take multiple rolls and stay dry on the inside. 

Asked by: Jay the paddler
The Hydrus 3L Stoke Paddling Jacket is a dry top with latex neck and wrist gaiters. The Hydrus 3L Stoke will be perfect for rolling.
