  • Short sleeve design frees your arms while still protecting your body's core from cold and wetness.
  • An alternative to more constricting latex gaskets, punch-through neoprene GlideSkin™ neck and wrist seals provide all-day comfort while still keeping most water out.
  • HyproTex™ inner skirt and 3" double-pull waist mate with your sprayskirt to keep you and your kayak's cockpit dry.
  • Fully taped seams ensure dryness and durability.

    Q:

    What's the difference between the Stampede Shorty and Shorty Play jacket? The materials and fabric look the same, and both have a double tunnel.

      Comments about NRS Stampede Shorty Jacket:

      This fell apart at the seams after about 6 months. The seam tape started delaminating first, then the seams themselves started failing. Then, due to those issues, it failed to make the return-trip from Mexico last fall. Now the spring weather has me looking for a replacement that will last longer (I would think 3 or 4 seasons of moderate use is a reasonable expectation).

      I'm good about caring for my gear when off the river (e.g., hanging it up/ storing it in a room with a/c) so I I don't feel like I abused it or contributed to its early demise.

      NRS - I am not comfortable purchasing another one of these, based on this experience. Thanks for considering my thoughts as you move forward with your business.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Customer service was good, as I returned one of the two sizes I ordered. Thanks for the help with that.

      Great warm weather top

          Comments about NRS Stampede Shorty Jacket:

          This is a great paddling top for warm and cool days on the water. I use this all summer on runs in the mountains of NC with a thin layer and in the cooler months with a thick fleece short sleeve top.

          Despite being labelled as a "semi-dry" I have never had water leak in through the gaskets. Typically I paddle up to class IV, so bigger water might yield different results. The neck gasket is super comfortable, every semi-dry top should have the rubberized neoprene gaskets.

          I spend half my year in this and half my year in my drysuit.

          Bought this top for lightweight summer protection on the water, the only complaint I have is that this top is not a true 2x, it's still very comfortable but just a little snug

            Does the job of keeping water out of the boat and is light enough to stay cool on the river on hot days, not a layer for warmth, but a light protection from elements....
