If you're challenging your nemesis to a boof-off, there are a few things you have to do to guarantee victory: drill a hole in the bottom of his boat, mail his dry deck to New Zealand, and stomp like your life depends on it. The Immersion Research Rival Long-Sleeve Men's Paddle Jacket will keep you bone-dry while you're showing that beater up, courtesy of a 3-layer WhiteOut membrane that's bonded to a 70-denier nylon shell and sealed up with latex cuff gaskets. IR 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 Rival's seams are fully-taped, and it has a fabric inner tunnel for extra protection. Your challenger doesn't stand a chance.

The pants also come with a hidden front zip pocket, and large ankle over-cuffs that will cinch down over your neoprene booties.
