Comfort Meets Mobility.
As fun as kayaking and playboating can be, it's also a double-edged sword simply because of the often experienced soggy sensation that arises from a swim or river spray. However, thanks to the NRS Men's Flux Drytop, you're able to stay some semblance of comfortable and dry. The Flux Drytop features a durable, yet pliable polyester microfiber shell that reduces paddling friction and protects you against abrasive objects, such as rocks or fallen tree branches. Meanwhile, the Eclipse fabric blocks moisture with its waterproof membrane, yet still allows built-up perspiration to escape for maximum breathability when paddling hard. Additionally, this drytop is able to connect to your pre-existing sprayskirt, and the latex neck and wrist gaiters provide a snug, secure fit. Not to mention, a GlideSkin coating inside the neoprene neck overcuff ensures your paddle session won't end prematurely due to chafing.

NEW 2018 Flux Review
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This updated dry top is improved substantially over the previous versions. The best thing is the punch through sleeves that do away with the old Velcro straps. Multiple combat rolls and a submersed arm to my neck in a standing wave sidesurf couldn't push water into this thing (which was good because that creek was 34.5F!!!). The large fit my 5'9" /165lb frame well and left plenty of room for an NRS Hydroskin 1.5 jacket over my farmer John wetsuit. That is a very comfortable combination and reduces the bulk of other layer combos I've tried before. The gaskets are substantial enough to keep water out yet are comfortable. I don't see how spending another $100 can net a better piece.
