Arch Rival Dry Top
Your penchant for pushing yourself and your gear have left you cold and wet more than once. Now it's time to live the dry life in the Immersion Research Arch Rival Dry Top. This durable dry top will withstand the beatings you (or the river) throw down while keeping you dry, day in and day out. Whether you're taking to the lake in the pre-storm winds or enjoying eddys in your favorite play boat, this dry top won't let the water put a damper on your fun.
Tough and supple might seem like the odd couple, but the nylon taslan 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. Plus, the seams are fully sealed to prevent moisture from sneaking through the stitches, and Immersion Research added a durable water repellent finish in order to shed the light stuff and prevent that cold next-to-skin feeling that water-covered fabric can sometimes bring.
The neoprene neck overgasket won't put a chokehold on your 'yakking while standing guard against intruding wetness. Latex lines the neck and wrists to keep the water out and a whiff of heat in. Redundancy rocks when it comes to keeping you dry, and the hook-and-loop wrist closures offer an additional line of defense against water. The drawcord adjustable neoprene waistband prevents this top from riding up when you reach new extremes on your high-angled stroke.
