I have that problem with most of my attire so I know what you mean. This top does not ride up on you. Unless your furiously waving your hands over your head to tell the guy down the beach from you that his rig drifted into your equipment, you should be fine.Galoot. Thanks for the tip about Guy Cotton , we are about the same size so I will check it out. When you lift your arms up over your head does the jacket ride up on you or is there enough extra material in the arm pit to keep the jacket in place.
Check out Bomber Gear for a Kayak style Dry Top. I have one and love it.
Have to also say some good words about the Bomber tops. Greg, I got a bomber top on closeout so I probably didn't pay anything near retail. Like it a lot.I have the Bomber top also. Its a great top for staying dry and safe in big surf and in the kayak, but most days om the beach its over kill. Not to mention the cost is high for AquaSkins, Bomber and some others. fact, there is a Kokatat full Dry Top XL up for bid - currently at $29.
Yeah, too late.....I got a Helley Hansen Roan Akorack (or something like that) for Christmas (I was in the same boat of not wanting to pay $200 for a surf top) They are $60 or $70, have neoprene cuffs, and are waterproof. Only have worn it once, but seems to be pretty good. It's light so you need to layer under it, but should fit the bill for what I need.
Thanks for the tip..gonna check those out...what is it with the sizes on these things..I put on a XXXL at tackle direct awhile back.... didnt even get halfway on and I thought the clerk was gonna have to cut me out of the thing...funny to watch im sureFor all of the larger gentlemen such as myself (6'-4" 300lbs) the Guy Cotton XXXL tops fit very well. Typically dry tops run small but not these. Although pricey, the top is very comfortable with ample front pocket storage room. Just an FYI.
The Guy Cotton's were nice, and all black with no silly coloring. Sleeves were a little short though, and I thought it was pretty weak that the price skyrocketed another $30 bucks for each size increase. Once you get to the XXL you are paying like $280 or something like thatThanks for the tip..gonna check those out...what is it with the sizes on these things..I put on a XXXL at tackle direct awhile back.... didnt even get halfway on and I thought the clerk was gonna have to cut me out of the thing...funny to watch im sure
I dont think Frogg Toggs has a true drytop (true wrist and neck seals). I dont even know if they have a semi drytop (true wrist seals and quasi neck seal). If they do, I can't find em???The new dry top from frogg toggs looks good but I don't know anyone that has one that can give a review. Anybody have one that can comment on it? http://www.froggtoggs.com/#wading/wading_jackets/221404/
