Leaks at my wrists

By Benny

from Yampa River Basin

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Sexy

Cons

  • Leaky

Best Uses

  • Rafting

Comments about NRS Men's Flux Drytop:

Not sure if I am a skinny armed guy or there is aleak in the material, but my left arm always gets water logged up to my elbow when paddling.

If it didn't do this, it would be a 5 star jacket. Everything else about it is very slick.

  • Only two colors

Best Uses

  • Creeking
  • freestyle
  • River running

Comments about NRS Men's Flux Drytop:

I 've been using the Flux drytop for two seasons now here in Norway and it is still holding up great. It is my go-to drytop whether it is creeking, river running or playboating.
I like how light it is and that it doesn't restrict me in any way - and that to me is kind of a big deal. Also, the material seems to be strong enough for portaging/bushwacking through norwegian woods.
I am not a big fan of velcros - so if I were to make a suggestion it would be to swap the velcros on the arms with neophrene - and maybe new colors to choose from.
All in all NRS has done a great job by keeping it simple & functional.

Good All Around Drytop

By Adam

from Boston, MA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about NRS Men's Flux Drytop:

After moving to the northeast, I quickly found I needed dryware. I learned to paddle in the south, where it was common to just put your PFD on and go. That said, this is my first dry top and it works fairly well. Assuming I don't swim and I don't spend too much time upside down, I stay reasonably dry. I did get slightly wet at a pond session where much time was spent rolling and messing around upside down, though the interior of my boat was really quite dry. So I think for most river running scenarios this will keep you nice and decently dry. It doesn't have a lot of reinforcements in the fabric, so I'm wondering how long it will last. I also really wish it had a pocket, but oh well. This is a good, solid, drytop.

    Q:

    I received an XL top as a gift for Christmas, but the gaskets all say large. Do the XL tops come with large gaskets?
    Asked on 12/28/2015 by Brady from Maryland

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, Brady, the XL dry tops and drysuits come with Large gaskets. The neck gasket should fit 15"-18" necks and 6.5"-8" wrists. If you find them too restrictive you can stretch them - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/how_to_stretch_latex_neck_gasket.asp - If you have questions, please give us a call.

    Q:

    bought a small for my 13 year old Based on sizing criteria he should fit as he is at the bottom of every parameter. He says it is very tight around the wrists and neck. Not sure what to do? Is there a way of stretching the material or do I size up? If I size up will it let water in Thanks
    Asked on 10/10/2015 by "bob you got to be kidding"

    5 answers

    • A:

      You can make the gaskets (both neck and wrist) larger by yourself at home. This will facilitate a better more comfortable fit as well as to allow for better circulation. If you look closely at the gaskets you'll notice that there are several rings evenly spaced around each one. By CAREFULLY cutting off the gasket using the rings as a guide you make the gaskets slightly bigger with each ring you remove. The more rings you cut off the bigger the gasket. It's important to take into consideration that gaskets are supposed to be tight in order to keep the water out and are inherently a bit uncomfortable. This is the trade off for keeping dry and after a while you get used to it. That being said you don't want your circulation to be cut off. I would remove the rings one at a time and try them out until you get to the point that the snugness is bearable and leave it there. You can always take off more after you've used it a couple times if you need.

      The gaskets are supposed to be tight to keep water out. It is a bit
      uncomfortable but you could find something a little bigger than the gaskets
      (maybe mason jars or drinking glasses, something like that) to put in them
      to stretch the gaskets out a bit. Hope that helps!

      A:

      Hi "Bob you got to be kidding", just to make sure he fits check the he can move his arms around and give himself a hug. Also check that he can tuck for a wet exit or kayak roll. If his movement is unrestricted apart from the tightness at the wrist and neck the drytop is a good fit. You can carefully trim the gaskets with sharp scissors or you can stretch them. Most people recommend stretching them. Coffee cans work well for the neck. Anything wider than the wrist (tennis balls etc) will work for the wrist.
      Hope this helps.

      Bob, someone unused to dry wear gaskets may find them uncomfortable, even when just snug. This video describes stretching gaskets - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/how_to_stretch_latex_neck_gasket.asp - If you're still having trouble give us a call, 800.635.5202.

      I wear mine tight. It loosens some as you wear it, but not a whole lot. I like it pretty snug.

    How do I best put on the NRS Black Rock dry pant together with theFlux dry top jacket to prevent water to enter into the suit around the waist?

      Max, tuck the inner tunnel of the drytop inside the waistband of the dry pant for the best seal.

    Q:

    What good is a 'drytop' if I the kayak skirts that we have are not water proof?
    I've searched several kayak stores to find a skirt that does not allow pooled water to drip into our kayaks and I cannot find one.
    Are we doing something wrong by using rain coats only? We don't do rolls or extreme whitewater but we do paddle in the rain.
    Asked on 12/17/2014 by Arv from Timmins, On. Canada

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Arv, most paddlers use a drytop for two things - to keep water out of the cockpit and to keep their inner layers dry. If your sprayskirts aren't waterproof, the top won't help with that first issue. Please check out our sprayskirts - http://www.nrs.com/category/2744/kayak-touring/sprayskirts-covers - to see if we have ones to fit your boats. A drytop may be more than you need, but I don't want to make that call without knowing more about you and your boating. Give us a call, 800.635.5202 (no phone trees!) or email service@nrs.com. Our friendly, knowledgeable customer service folks will chat with you and help you get what you need. We also have a number of dealers in Ontario, you can find them here - http://www.nrs.com/services/dealerlocator.asp
