A simple design that's built to last.
For a simple, well-designed top that will keep you dry and stand up to years of tough use, look no further than the Immersion Research Men's Short-Sleeve Arch Rival Dry Top. The short-sleeve design lets your flaunt your enviable elbows and breathtaking biceps when you're paddling to impress. Be it an August day where eggs fry before they hit the sidewalk or an unseasonably warm September afternoon, this short-sleeve dry top won't leave you a hot, wet mess.
Tough and supple might seem like the odd couple, but the 75Dx170D polyester shell makes the relationship work. The proprietary WhiteOut membrane provides waterproof and breathable protection for a few rolls or the fierce spray from a spectacular spring-off. The waterproof and breathable nylon taffeta tunnel attaches to your spray skirt for a wildly dry time on some wicked rapids or through snarling surf. Shirts mean stitches and stitches mean seams, and seams mean water sneaking in and drowning your fun—unless the seams are taped like the Arch Rival's, and then you've neither a care nor a worry in the world.
The neoprene neck and biceps overgaskets won't put a chokehold on your 'yakking while
standing guard against intruding wetness. The drawcord adjustable neoprene waistband
prevents this top from riding up when you reach new extremes on your
high-angled stroke. Serious playboaters want it dry inside, and the rest of us want to enjoy the paddle without turning into a puddle. The Arch Rival will take on, and best, any other dry top when it comes to keeping you cool and the water out of your boat.
