Dry Top??

I Had a Bomber Gear Dry top for the last 3 years and it has several holes in it now. I am going to try to make it last for as long as possible. I am willing to spend a little more money on a top so that it will last longer. Any suggestions on a good Dry Top that will Last?

i like my IR top...

most people like stohlquist tops; however, the stitching on my stohlquist came unraveled after about 1.5 seasons, and allows water to gush in now, so i purchased a new IR top last week, the full conditions drytop. aside from a couple of short icy veins down the neckline on sunday (which i think are from me trimming the neck gasket a bit too short and maybe overstretching the gasket as well), i am very pleased with it after two days of boating. very dry, warm, and good, durable feeling fabric. highly recommended.

Kokatat Gore Tex all the way, mine is on season 9. Still works like a champ and have only had to replace neck gasket, the wrists gaskets are still original. You pay top dollar but it has also been the only thing I haven't replaced three times yet.
