I purchased a Stohlquist Brik 2.0 last season (non-Gore Tex version). It's in great shape, but it leaks at my right elbow and left gasket.

I checked the seams and they appear to be sealed and in good condition. The gasket is not ripped or torn. The seam where it connects to the drytop is in good condition.

Nonetheless, it leaks and I can't figure out why. If I send it back now, I don't have a dry top for the spring.

Any advice on a temporary fix?

leaky top?

I don't think any drytop is 100% dry. Does your wrist gasket seal good aginst your skin? Does it tend to leak more when your in holes? I always tend to get wet on the arm I brace with in holes.
If you think you've got a hole or small tear the best way to find out for sure is to get a flashlight and shine it inside your drytop in a dark room. Small pin holes will show up and can be fixed easy with aquaseal. I hope this helps.

Good call with the flashlight trick james. I sent mine back to Stolquist for a leak check which they said that they performed. It came up negative, but I have the same problem with a leak at my elbows. It is most likely my gaskets, but i am sick of fing with it and I'm just going to buy a IR top. Frankly, sending it to Stolquist (they sent it back without asking me any questions or asking if I wanted them to replace the gaskets) was a waste of time and I did it in the winter.
