A kayak drytop is a type of kayaking jacket that is essentially the top half of a paddling drysuit. It is one of the most popular pieces of kayak clothing you can buy. Complete with latex rubber gaskets at the wrist and neck, kayak drytops are perfect for keeping your top half dry and comfortable when on the water. Kayak drytops are meant to be used in addition to a spray skirt, without which can cause water to leak in from the bottom of the jacket. For this reason many, many paddlers wear a kayak drytop over other layering, keeping their whole body insulated. When choosing a kayak drytop, you may also want to consider the material the jacket is made out of. Gore-tex kayaking drytops are the most expensive, but for good reason. These top performing drytops keep every drop of water out of your kayak!
