The Rival is our high performance paddling jacket made with our proprietary 3-layer WhiteOut waterproof breathable technology bonded to a 70 denier nylon shell. The neck seal is a snug, but comfortable neoprene neck gasket, and we use latex gaskets at the wrists- making this jacket a great compromise between dryness and comfort. The jacket also features an adjustable neoprene waistband and a fabric inner tunnel. All seams are sealed.Note that neoprene gaskets are NOT dry gaskets- they do a pretty good job of keeping water out, but if you want a true dry top, you need to go to a jacket with latex gaskets.
You will, we repeat, will, stay dry underneath the Immersion Research Men's Rival Paddle Jacket. Waterproof breathable fabric even allows sweaty moisture to escape from underneath this jacket-adios clammy chest! In all seriousness this is a high-performance paddling jacket designed for river rats, river runners, boofers, toofers and all the other 'oofing you can do in a fast-moving stream of water.
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)
