Best Overall
Level Six Emperor

If you’re looking for a great dry suit for more active kayaking, like whitewater, the Emperor dry suit from Level Six is a good choice. It’s reinforced in the knees, butt, elbows and shoulders and the material is going to hold up against use quite well.

Around the gaskets there are cuffs to protect the seals against wear & tear, including UV assault. There are zipper covers and a relief zipper for when nature calls. Level Six has added what they call a double stealth waist tunnel for good fit/protection maximization.

This is the most heavy-duty dry suit on this list and is intended for whitewater kayaking and surfing or for fishing in really crappy weather.
