Supermodel Dry Top

When we set out to design the Supermodel dry top we looked for inspiration in high end, packable alpine shells, and the end result is a waterproof breathable dry top that is simply a delight to wear on the water. The heart of this jacket is it’s phenomenal fabric. The 100% nylon shell material is light, remarkably durable for it’s weight and has great hand feel. The laminate is a very breathable PTFE and completely unfazed by the brutal conditions found inside the typical dry top.

The jacket design is purposefully simple- long, straight seams that are easy to tape with uniform heat, and we eliminate all bulky 4-way cross seams. Each seam junction is hot/cold pressed, and the seam allowances are hand trimmed to 1/8th inch to keep air channels under the seam tape to a bare minimum.

The main body is a supple 70 denier nylon, and we reinforce the elbows with a 330 denier oxford. Like all of our dry tops, the gaskets are glued in by hand and 100% guaranteed for the first year after purchase. The jacket also features a fabric inner tunnel and velcro/neoprene wrist and waist closures.

    I bought the Supermodel dry top last year and have been using it this season. It is very comfortable and while making paddle strokes the fabric is quiet and flexible. The fabric is breathable and the top feels good while paddling. I am a big fan of IR products. IR makes quality products that just keep on performing like they were new even after several years of use. I have some IR fleece tights that I have used for over ten years and they still have a lot of life to go. Way to go IR, you make stuff that last.
