Whitewater Dry Cags With Glide-Skin or Latex Neck Seals

The Most Popular Dry Tops Designed for White Water Kayaking and Canoeing


Whilst a paddling “dry jacket” will never be 100% watertight, and eventually water will find its way in through the seals, they are generally considered good enough to be referred to in this way. They are the most effective way to keep the top half of your body dry if you’re unlucky enough to find yourself upside down in your boat, a common occurrence in all disciplines of white water kayaking.

 

With strong latex seals at both the neck and wrists, combined with a ‘twin-waist seal that combines with a spraydeck. Some of these cags will have Glideskin neck seals as opposed to Latex and are referred to as ‘semi-dry cags’. These high end jackets prevent *water flushing through them, keeping base layers worn under the top for warmth dry, more comfortable and able to offer insulation from the cold. Worn with dry trousers or over a long-john wetsuit, these dry cags offer a versatile way of enjoying time on white-water rivers throughout the UK and abroad. All of these drytops share common features, but what splits these jackets apart are the materials they are constructed from. In general, the better grade fabrics offer higher levels of waterproofing and breathability.
