Bomber Gear Palguin Dry Top

Bomber Gear Palguin Dry Top

($399, bombergear.com)

Bomber Gear’s new Palguin Dry Top is made from the most flexible and lightweight material that we have encountered so far in a dry top. It feels even more lightweight than the Kokatat Rogue. It’s also $50 (give or take) cheaper than other high-end tops. Bomber Gear clearly spent a lot of time tailoring the cut of their newest top. In fact, I barely notice that I am wearing it on the water. If you’re looking for a lightweight top this summer, the new Palguin is a great choice.

Bomber Gear also sells matching Palguin Dry pants for those who need a versatile way to gear up when the weather turns cold again, but don’t want to shell out the cash for a drysuit.
