DryTops?

Looks like I am needing a new drytop...........What drytop is everyone having the most success with these days?...not only dry but also cut for plenty of free movement for tall broad shouldered guys. Long sleeve only.

Thanxs

My X Jacket is the greatest piece of outdoor gear I've bought in ages, and I buy too much...my POS NRS top was the only prior used model, so not hard to beat...

Kokotat

I've got a Rogue and love it... bought another gore-tex kokatat that was defective and kokatat stood behind the product... when they couldn't figure out why my first was leaking, they sent me a new Rogue... great product and great customer service.

Kokatat's the bomb and I love my IR Comp LX Jacket (XL, for a guy 6'2 190 size 44 long), I've had it for 6 seasons now and with a little 303 and Nikwax it's as dry as the day I bought it. IR's X-jacket is also nice, super-techy with all the welded seams if you're into that sort of thing. Level 6 also has some cool stuff that works well.

I puzzled over this same question about a month ago and went with the Rogue. Its bomber. The X jacket was my second choice. IR customer service is great. The Rogue moves great and feels like I'm not even wearing a top at all.
