    i am 5" 120 lbs and have a small size which fits well atop all warm clothing or full wetsuit. keeps me completely dry. does clearly say it's an irregular piece but doesn't affect quality at all.

    The quality seems good although I never got to test it in the water. The neck opening is really small, not just the gasket, the actual opening itself. I couldn't fit my head through. I don't consider myself to have a very large head, but I usually wear small to medium helmets. I have a small frame and could fit the wrist gaskets okay. the shoulders and waist felt as though they may have been uncomfortably snug, but I was never to pull it all the way down. I'm 5'5" 125# with 32" hips, not super broad shoulders. If it fits you, it seems to be of good quality. I wish i had been able to water test it!

    buyer's should be aware these are manufacturer's irregulars. This is not stated in the listing that I could see. Although it does states 2nds. It is clearly stamped on the garment however. The quality seems fine however.

    I almost got scared off by the all the reviews saying this top runs small, but as a 5'6 130lb female, it fits great. I haven't river tested it yet, but the gaskets are snug and the quality of the material seems awesome. Seems like there will be plenty of room for flexibility when paddling/rolling.

    This is less expensive than a splash jacket and it works well for white water kayaking for my daughter. The XS fit her. She is 5'2" and 100 lbs. We did stretch the wrist gaskets with soup cans and the neck gasket with a vase, but the gaskets should fit snugly. Could not find any flaws on the product.

    Yes, I read the other reviews but this is really small (maybe best for small females and children). I am a small male 5' 8", 148 lbs, 15" neck, 6.5" wrist and a hat size of 6 7/8". I ordered the small and could only get one sleeve on. No way was it going over my head or onto my other arm. It seemed like it was good quality but I would say it may be 2 standard sizes smaller than the label says. Highly recommend trying this on before keeping it or giving it as a gift.

    I'm a 5'10" female, 120 lbs, athletic build. I bought this in a small (would normally buy an xs) based on the reviews. It's very well made, but the gaskets are extremely tight. I'm going to need to trim them AND get help sliding this over my head. It's been stretching out for the past few days and I still haven't been able to get my average head through it.

    Good looking top but just runs small.

    this is the best deal on a dry top that I have seen! I will not wear it until this spring on the river but it looks great .

    I am 5'4", 130lbs. I ordered size S, no way this fits me, it is too small. I suggest this for a small frame, 115lbs or smaller. Other than that, the quality, design are excellent.
