Fall might mean the end of the kayaking season for most but there's still some whitewater left for you to play in, and the Stohlquist Men's FreePlay Dry Top lets you do it comfortably even in the most extreme cold. Its Twin Sensor shell places a waterproof barrier between you and the cold water with four layers of nylon fabrics, DWR treatments, and two separate membranes. While the exterior, microporous membrane prevents water from passing through, the interior, hydrophilic laminate absorbs your body's moisture and transports it away from your skin in order to increase the top's breathability. Stohlquist also added Duraseal latex wrist gaskets, which are a lot softer than conventional latex gaskets, while the neoprene collar helps seal out the wetness with extraordinary breathability and the mesh drainage dumps out any water after epic tweeter-fests. Stohlquist gave its FreePlay a roomy athletic fit for full mobility that you appreciate during your paddling sessions, and hook-and-loop tabs at the waist and wrists let you customize the top for your ideal fit. Its Gripp-Loc skirt tunnel accommodates your spray skirt without any openings. Double and triple sewn seams keep the top durable for a long time, and reflective accents help keep you visible to your friends if you get lost in the water.
Stohlquist FreePLAY Kayak Drytop - The FreePLAY from Stohlquist is a top-of-the-line playboating and river running drytop. It is designed using a 4-layer Twin Sensor waterproof breathable fabric. Twin Sensor fabric utilities the best DWR treatments, durable nylon shell fabrics, and waterproof breathable treatments to provide the ultimate in protection and comfort in drywear. Softer, neoprene coated Duraseal latex neck and wrist gaskets are more UV resistant and offer greater durability and tear resistance yet still seal out water. Adjustable neoprene overcuffs at the wrists insulate and protect the gaskets. This drytop offers exceptional freedom and mobility, effortlessly following your every move and eliminates all 4-way seam intersections for ideal comfort. Outer and inner waistbands combine to create an "envelope" tunnel for your sprayskirt's tunnel. This envelope blocks water flow to the inside of your boat. A wide, dual-adjustable outer waistband seals to your skirt with Gripp-Loc neoprene panels to minimize shifting and slipping. The inner waist is longer than one might expect. It has a wide, sticky-backed neoprene band sewn onto the lower hem. This Gripp-Loc feature keeps it from creeping upwards and locks the hem comfortably in place on the hips. This is also drier, keeping your lower back covered and preventing water from entering at the hem, while upright or inverted. Reflective panels and an arm pocket with a water resistant zipper finish off this great drytop. The FreePLAY Drytop from Stohlquist provides the dry ride you need for paddling in cold whitewater.
