Great Dry top, Dry And Warm
I was a little worried about how tight neck gasket was, but after stretching it out over night it fit fine. First time I swam in March I was glad I spent a little more to get a quality Dry Top. Fits well with plenty of room to make all my paddling strokes effortless.

The first thing that struck me about this dry top was the fit. There is absolutely no restriction of movement, definitely a well designed product. The neck gasket did require trimming but all the gaskets are still extremely dry.

This is an awesome product! Was a little worried about spending this much money on a dry top, but after one use it was worth every penny! The gaskets are nice and snug to prevent leakage, they also hold in air to add flotation to you! If you've ever swam a class 5, flotation is good! Great product! Would definitely recommend this top!

Great product. Well tested in sub-40 water.
I bought this Drytop for cold water paddling in the NE. Specifically, I am learning to paddle a surf ski so am spending a decent amount of time swimming. This top works great and is a really great fit. I did have to trim the nect gasket a bit to accomodate my neck size but that was it. The fit does not constrain my stroke as the back, chest and underarm seems cut well. It is also not 'baggy' as some tops tend to be. Gaskets are good quality and watertight, even when trimmed a touch for size. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to stay warm and dry on the water.

Awesome Jacket - Love it!
I love this jacket, I was unsure of which to get (NRS, Kokatat, extrasport, exc.) but after reading a lot of reviews on the internet I found that Kotatat had the best feedback from people. I considered the Rogue but went with the Helix many for the price and good words I read about it's quality. I've used a hand full of times and am very pleased. Fit is great (I'm 6'0 - 155 medium build) and got a MED. Keeps me completely dry roll after roll. Highly recommend.
