Servicing a Kokatat Drysuit

Kokatat drysuits are widely regarded as the best in the business.

What makes owning a Kokatat suit even better, is the after care service.
Kokatat pride themselves on their top secret testing methods, allowing them to pin point exactly where the problems lie.

"Drysuits will pick up pin holes during normal use. This can be from undergrowth, sharp rocks, fibreglass etc.
A single pin hole if submerged can "wet out" a whole panel of the drysuit in a short time.
Kokatat's pressure test will reveal all pin holes and then its a simple matter of repairing them."


So how do you get your suit serviced?

System X have been fully trained to test and repair Kokatat suits, and are the point of call for UK and European customers,
This means you can send your suit straight to System X directly, saving a bit of time if you're in a rush, or you can use Escape Watersports as the 'middle man'.

Fill out their service form and enclose with your drysuit.

To get the best results, make sure you wash the suit inside out and dry it well before sending it off.

Sending a suit back typically takes up to 2 weeks, but when it comes back its amazing to actually see where the pin hole leaks were.

From my experience this service is worth every penny!
