As soon as we got our hands on this dry top, we knew it was expedition-grade. The hefty 400-denier body and Cordura elbow patches provide protection from creek beds, canyon walls and overgrowth on portages. Redesigned for 2012, the Revolution is equipped with a standard neoprene collar and a Velcro, neoprene and nylon tunnel. Not so standard are the liquid-sealed seams. Rather than just using seam tape to seal the jacket, NRS has applied liquid rubber sealant to the seams and gaskets for extra leak-proof insurance.
High Sign: So heavy duty you may never wear it out.
Low Sign: Heavyweight protection means, well, heavy weight.
