Counterfeit drysuits... Don’t do it! 

Our President, Stig Larsson, unboxed a counterfeit dry suit that we bought on Amazon from a brand that was copying our images... (this suit is also listed on Alibaba and Aliexpress) we also did a pressure test at the end of the video to test the waterproofness of the seam tape.

Here are a few of Stig's key takeaway's:

  • The counterfeit dry suit is less than half the quality of our Emperor Dry Suit. Not worth the $560 spent on Amazon (with shipping and tax). For that price you could buy a 5-year old used Empero¬†Dry Suit¬†as a safer product.
  • Inferior latex¬†gasket¬†that may only last a couple of uses.
  • Double-tunnel is not long enough to work or create a seal around the tunnel of a spray skirt.
  • Waist adjustment system that doesn't work.
  • Bulky neoprene socks will not fit any river boot.
  • Questionable quality waterproof zipper. Stig would not trust his life with a waterproof zipper that is not YKK or TIZIP. If your suit fills with water during a swim in whitewater, "it will probably be your last day."
  • Not worth taking the risk to save a few hundred dollars.
  • When you buy Level Six you are supporting years of hard work that has gone into designing a high-quality and durable dry suit.¬†
  • You are also supporting reat causes that give back to the kayak community and watershed conservation.
