Don't work for them, I have met Ken Driscoll, he's the PeakUK guy here in the US and happens to live in SLC. I bought my the combi shorty semi drytop form Ken, and have since changed all of my dry gear over to peakUK. I didn't like the velcro at the wrists too much either, but found that I never used it and never needed it and have stayed completely dry. I'm a pretty big guy and sweat a lot and the top breaths well enough that I haven't had any issues at all. I have used several other brands as well, I have been managing a rafting company in Idaho for about ten years now, and even with access to just about any other drytop out there, I stand by my PeakUK gear!
