I'm still sporting a circa 2001ish BG drytop. I've put 30-50 days a season on 'er, and still stay relatively dry during a day of paddling.
I even tore the sleeve open while counting fishies, called BG with that explaination, and they said to ship it to them, they would take care of the rest!! It was back home within several weeks and better than ever. Can't beat that. I think its about time for a new top, I really need a new color.
Best of luck Rick and Eric, you'll be getting my order this spring...
