New Products @ PADDLEexpo 2014 – Nookie’s New Dry Line
Nookie launches their brand new British made 2015 dry-wear range at PaddleExpo 2014 (Nuremberg Germany Sept 28-30th). The smart Nookie Charger Drysuit, Nookie Pro Bib Dry Trouser/Salopettes and Nookie Evolution Dry Trousers are all stylish, technical and durable in the new EvoTX 4 and EvoTX4 500D Reinforced fabric*.
Nookie Charger Drysuit
The Nookie Charger Drysuit features an easy-access rear-entry waterproof MasterSeal Ti Zip and an additional relief zip for comfort. The new EvoTX 4 fabric makes this suit comfortable yet tough, with EvoTX 500D reinforcement in all the high wear areas; elbows, seat, knees, socks and all cuffs. The double layer latex and neoprene neck and cuffs secure a dry seal with the fabric socks. The asymmetric comfortable fabric socks (they fit your left or right foot), have limited seams to make them last longer. Wear them with socks inside as a base layer and shoes over the top. The double layer waist offers a better dry seal when in a kayak with a spraydeck with the added bonus of hidden spraydeck clips to stop your deck from slipping down. The outer waist is deep sharkskin lined neoprene for grip with low snag velcro adjusters and shockcord and lock for an extra secure fit. The whole suit has been cleverly designed to offer an anatomical dynamic fit for active use. The suit moves with you and allows freedom when reaching for those all important paddle strokes. The Nookie Charger Drysuit exudes quality which is the result of a British designed and made highly technical piece of equipment. This superb suit is finished with retro-reflective detailing and stylish red trim.
Nookie Evolution Dry Trousers (available with dry socks or latex ankle seals)
Evolution : The process by which things have developed and improved from earlier forms.
Nookie have always been renowned for their ever popular dry trouser range but the new range have evolved to surpass their predecessors. The asymmetric comfortable fabric socks (they fit your left or right foot), have limited seams to make them last longer. Made from the new Nookie EvoTX 500D 4ply reinforcement, these socks are tough yet breathable. Wear them with socks inside as a base layer and shoes over the top. The trouser is cut with an anatomical fit using the new Nookie EvoTX 4 fabric, perfect for high active use or sitting in a kayak. The Nookie Evolution Dry Trousers are also available with latex ankle cuffs if you don’t fancy the dry sock option. The classic tall blindstitched and glued neoprene waist with sharkskin mesh (to avoid water wicking up your trousers), has been used because Nookie know this is the best seal for your dry trousers. They are finished off with retro-reflective detailing and smart red trims.
Nookie Pro Bib Dry Trousers – WW Edition

The inner bib is fully waterproof taped EvoTX4 fabric with a neoprene O-ring seal to keep them in place. The Nookie Pro Bib Dry Trousers (WW Edition) include waterproof MasterSeal Ti Zip relief zip for comfort, 50mm wide adjustable elastic braces, retro-reflective detailing and waterproof fabric socks.

*The smart new British made ‘Game Changer’ dry-wear range utilises the tough new Nookie EvoTX 4 and EvoTX4 500D Reinforced (4ply) fabric. These super stylish British made waterproof garments boast more technical specifications and design and development pedigree than you can shake a stick at. Designed by their in-house team (with over three decades of combined experience) and thoroughly tested by a multitude of team riders and outdoor professionals in the four corners of the World. The brand new Nookie 4ply fabric comes in two weights. The heavier weight (500D Nylon) is as tough as Cordura® and is used in all the high wear areas with the added benefit of 20,000mm/H2O W/P / 3,000g/m2/24hrs MVP. Nookie know from experience garments need to be rugged in the seat, knees, outer ankle cuffs and socks. The Nookie EvoTX 4 is flexible and soft to the touch and even more breathable with a rating of 20,000mm/H2O W/P / 5000g/m2/24hrs MVP. Both weights of fabric are durable, waterproof and breathable yet flexible and comfortable to wear with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) coating. All the garments are professionally taped to dive quality standard, and every single drysuit is pressure tested before leaving Nookie’s factory in Cornwall.
