Kokatat Paddling Attire

Kokatat has been manufacturing paddling gear in Arcata, California since 1971. At a time when many technical apparel brands were moving manufacturing offshore, Kokatat continued to invest in infrastructure in the United States. Kokatat’s hands-on approach to manufacturing continues to set the standard in paddling apparel.

General Care Instructions

By taking care of your product before and after use, you can greatly extend its life and function and avoid or delay many of the most common repairs.

Gasket Repair & Other Instructions

Once your product has gotten enough use and is ready for one of the more common repairs, such as gasket replacement on a dry suit, you will be able to do many of the repairs yourself. With self-repair kits made by Kokatat and the instructions in this section, you'll be well on your way to a replaced gasket or a patched knee.
