You dropped a boatload for your new expedition kayak. While resources may be limited, you still have enough for the Kokatat Men's Hydrus 3L Stoke Dry Top. Now you can actually put your boat in the water--and paddle it, too!--without fear of succumbing to hypothermia within minutes. Kokata's proprietary waterproof and breathable triple-layer fabric, Hydrus, is designed to keep you dry from both sweat and spray without leaving you financially sunk. Go ahead and explore the caves along the shores of Lake Superior this fall, knowing you're safe from sprinkles of either lake or rain water. Hydrus 3L is a hat trick of waterproof, breathable materials magic. The nylon shell gets a boost of water repellency from the DWR coating. The middle layer gets bathed in a micro-porous polyurethane coating so sweat moves to the surface while preventing surf from sneaking in. The polyester inner layer feels sweet against your skin at the same time it wicks away your kayaking-created sweat. The end result is you stay dry and comfortable from the moment your boat hits the water until you're draining the last drops of your post-paddle celebratory drink. Latex neck and wrist gaiters all but guarantee water won't be creeping up your arms or breathing down your neck. You can trim the neck gaiter for a fit that still allows bloodflow, but you'll wreck this top if you take a knife to your wrist ... gaskets. Superstretch neoprene overcuffs and collar add a bit of insulation while simultaneously guarding the gaskets. The outer skirt uses two hook-and-loop tabs to attach to your boat's spray skirt to minimize the amount of water entering the cockpit. An inner tunnel gets cinched down with a bungee drawcord. The self-draining chest pocket is the perfect place to stash your keys, thanks to an attached lanyard.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
