 Customers Review:


Earlier this year I purchased a Gul Taw (formally Scapa) Front Zip+PEE ZIP Kayaking Drysuit. In addition I bought 3 Gul dry bags and a Gul rain jacket.

In June and July,  the middle of our winter, I was driving an inflatable rescue boat in support of filming in New Zealand’s Dusky Sound for three weeks. The average annual rainfall is around 7.8 metres here. 

I wore the Gul drysuit nearly everyday, from first light until dark. I marvelled at the fact that, when I took off the drysuit at the end of each day, my clothing was completely dry. Regardless of the wind, rain, sleet and one day snow I was always dry. Even when I was wading up to waste deep I stayed dry. This Gul drysuit is awesome

The drysuit is without a doubt the best item of outdoor clothing I have ever purchased.

It surpasses all other outer shell jackets I have bought for climbing and tramping over the last 40 years

The dry bags and jacket were also excellent."

Your suit has been made from carefully selected materials to give the best combination of durability and performance. With the correct care you will gain the maximum life from your suit. Always rinse your suit after use, in clean water using a mild detergent if necessary. Pay particular attention to remove any sand or foreign matter from the zips. Please don’t use any solvents or other chemicals to remove stains or marks from your suit as this can cause damage. Do not force zips and if possible get someone to pull up the zips for you. Protect your suit from sharp or abrasive objects. Ensure the suit is the correct size and do not pull the ends of sleeves or legs to remove.
