Your penchant for pushing yourself and your gear have left you cold and wet many a time. Now it's time to live the dry life in the Immersion Research Men's Long-Sleeve 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 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. A word of advice: when your paddling nemesis is in the throes of thawing her water-frozen torso, hold off flaunting your wickedly dry core. 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.
