  can't see the plus side...

in the economics of a 300 dollar suit vs 900 dollar suit. Time-proven fabric, life-time warranty and overall durability definitely outweights the cheaper price. Likely as not there is a reason for the price - as with everything. Over a lifespan of Kokatat drysuit - that is 10+ years if not 15+, 1000 dollars is miniscule investment into your safety on the water.

If it were easy to come up with products of the same qulity at 1/3 the price, there'd be no Kokatat, no Valley, no Tiderace... all those products are over-engineered and pretty useless for ordinary folk who do not do expeditions :)
