I have a 7 year old Mtn. Surf dry deck and it is still the best piece of gear I own. The ability to get dressed in 2 minutes flat, the lack of any tight layers around your mid section (no more love handle rash, and you can layer in a down coat if you would ever want to), and the dryness during back decks and loops you really can't beat it. I had heard that Snap Dragon will sew and tape a skirt onto the top of your choice, I've seen some drydecked Kokatats and old Lotuses that looked pretty saucy. They aren't cheap but you won't regret it.

Damn it, I thought this was a much more amusing post than what the Header was.

Call Ripley's cause I am not going to make a gutter statement. (although I will take numbers, but only if she can talk about something besides The Hills)

Anyways I am surprised that since the subject has strayed into drydecks no one has mentioned Immersion Research. You can call them up and they will make a custom drydeck for you, and I think it is either the cost of the skirt and drytop or slightly slightly more. Kayakgirl that means that if for some reason god made your badunk-a-dunk and hips wider than most of the size 2 wanna-b models who clammer to CU's campus you could order the J-Lo skirt (real name) and pair it with what ever drytop you wanted. I would go with the Women's Comp LX (shiat that is sexy in purple) Maybe the Simple But Dry skirt will work for your needs. Its too bad they stopped with the superbungee cause a super drydeck would fit your requirements perfectly.

And no I don't work for IR, but they can give me a job any time, cause they are the shit.

yourrealdad is correct. IR makes any combo of drydecks (shorty, long sleeve x-jacket with any of their skirts.

I had them make me a comp lx and a SBD drydeck.. It's incredible and very dry. No more cold water running down my back when I playboat.

You can also send in any drytop to Snap Dragon and have them sew it on to one of their skirts. Only requirement is that it is a NEW drytop and obviously their skirt.

It is soooooooooo worth the money. Once you own one you will never want anything else! It takes less time to get dressed. It's 10 times more comfortable around the waist because you have no crap bunched up around your waist. And, it is way drier.

Thanks guys!

I am going to try out some boys skirts first and see if that helps. I can get thoes way up higher under my drytop and there will probably be less slipage.

If that doesn't work I will look into the velcro and dry decks.
