I leave my paddling gear in my (locked) car all the time. Mostly in the trunk though, just 'cuz it's wet and my trunk has a drain-plug.

Sorry about your loss. Hopefully you find your snazzy new drytop soon. I love the IR plaid gear.

Call the Gear Exchange in Glenwood. It's the used gear store. Darren and Kendal are solid people. If the drytop shows up there they will surely call you and or the police.

I leave my gear in my truck. I like to think the smell would immediately deter a thief.

I have paddled a long time and had canoes stolen While teaching a girls club on a lake . We left them by the camp and they were taken in the night . 1 year later we found 2 of the three . The people said thier bother had bought the canoes and he was some where in another state . Long story short we got 2 back . But I really was pissed and out raged . In the area I live we shoot thevies if we catch them in the act . This has happened more than once .

I'm with KSC... the plaid top wasn't *stolen* so much as your dignity is restored. That said it totally blows to have any gear stolen. It's sad that we can't drape our smelly crap out to dry without having to keep an eye on it.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Have to say that I'd be tempted to do the same. Certainly, if I saw someone else shoot a thief stealing his/her stuff, I wouldn't know anything about it, if ya know what I mean.

Thieves deserve every bit of nastiness that they ask for.

And yeah, I've had a home and a vehicle broken into. Since then, I've taken "steps" to reduce the chances of repeat incidents, if ya know what I mean.
