Kokatat Gore-Tex Rogue Dry Top
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
When it's just too warm for a full-on dry suit but not warm enough to boof bare-armed, stay dry when tackling whitewater in the Kokatat Women's GTX Rogue Drytop. Deliberate design and careful attention to detail turns this drytop into a performance piece of outerwear. Despite a seemingly steep price tag, the Rogue will withstand years and years of use, whether you're snow kayaking or sticking to the more typical, liquid water-based paddling exploits. Evolution nylon is a sleek shell, hiding the goods that make this drytop great. Triple-layer Gore-Tex Pro laminate gives your upper half guaranteed protection from both vicious creek spray and sweat so you can paddle without being wet. Heavy-duty 330 Cordura Gore-Tex reinforcements along the shoulders, elbows, and forearms protect your investment from wear in high-abrasion areas. Ripping through rapids rarely leaves you dry, but the latex neck and wrist gaskets ensure the water doesn't sneak inside. Superstretch neoprene overcuffs and collar add some longevity to the gaskets, as well as offer a bit of insulation. While the dual-adjustable outer skirt works with your spray skirt to minimize the amount of water in the cockpit, the Gore-Tex inner skirt takes away the chance that incoming water will turn your torso into a block of ice.
