Kayak Dry Tops

Keep Your Upper Body Dry & Comfortable While Paddling with a Kayak Dry Top!

If you want to keep your upper body dry and comfortable while you paddle, you need a kayak dry top! And by combining a kayak dry top with a kayak spray skirts, you’ll stay 100% dry!

A shorty dry top is essentially the top half of a dry suit and comes equipped with latex rubber gaskets at the wrist and neck. They’re one of the most popular pieces of kayak clothing we offer, because they’re more comfortable and can be less expensive than a full-blown dry suit. If you’re just going to wear a kayak dry top, it’s important to make sure your spray skirt is dialed in. For this reason, many paddlers wear a kayak drytop over other layering, keeping their core insulated.

And maybe you need some other type of kayaking gear. If you’re constantly rafting or kayaking in cold conditions, you’re better off with a full blown drysuit – these offer the most insulation.
