The Immersion Research Rival Long-Sleeve Men's Paddle Jacket will keep you dry while you're out on the water, courtesy of a three-layer WhiteOut membrane that's bonded to a 70D nylon shell and sealed up with latex cuff gaskets. Immersion Research opted for neoprene at the neck gasket and waistband, which isn't quite as waterproof as latex but is far more comfortable, making the Rival a great option for paddlers looking for a comfortable jacket that can still own serious water all the way until full-on drysuit season. All the Rival's seams are fully taped, and it has a fabric inner tunnel for extra protection and comfort.
The Rival paddle jacket is a high performance top that provides many of the features found in more expensive drytops at a much more reasonable price. Perfect for rough water paddling, either touring or whitewater, the Rival long sleeve top will keep a paddler dry and comfortable. The semi-dry neoprene neck gasket ensures that most water stays out yet doesn't constrict or squeeze, like most latex neck gaskets. The 3-layer nylon taffetta fabric construction is durable yet lightweight, waterproof and breatheable - perfect for warmer weather days.Constructed with lightweight, 3-layer waterproof/breathable 70 denier nylon taffetaSeam taped throughout Semi-dry neoprene neck with glued in latex wrist gaskets eliminate most water from enteringWaterproof/breatheable nylon taffeta inner tunnel creates a watertight system with a sprayskirtNeoprene wrist ovver gaskets ensures the durability of the wrist gasketsAdjustable neoprene waistband.Sizing:(please include IR sizing chart)
