Designs for paddlers have evolved from the early days when Stohlquist pioneered the first-ever drytop. Today there is the FREEdom series, offering paddlers the benefits of 20 years of design refinement to provide the best performance in comfort, mobility, breathability, and waterproof durability.

The FreePLAY™ integrates an ergonomic, 3-D articulated cut for a performance fit that follows your every move. Built of Stohlquist’s proprietary TTL Ecipse™, a medium weight 3-layer hydrophobic/hydrophilic shell fabric, formulated for its beefy yet supple hand, and superior waterproof durability. TTL Ecipse™ has been developed, tested and proven comparable to the most expensive alternatives in performance and waterproof durability. All seams double and triple sewn, taped for waterproof integrity, water tested to 3 psi.

Water is sealed out at neck and wrists with thin yet durable latex rubber seals. Cuff covers offer a backup option for the latex gaskets, additional protection from abrasion, and serve as shields from the effects of the sun. They are assembled with Free-FLOW, self-draining edgings to release trapped moisture before it accumulates. Stretchy neoprene cuffs have Velcro™ backed neoprene for a full range of adjustment. Titanium neo-outer collar has front zip adjustment.

Inner waist is longer than one might expect. It has a wide, sticky backed neoprene band sewn onto the lower hem. This Gripp-Loc™ feature keeps it from creeping upwards and locks the hem comfortably in place on the hips. This is drier, and keeps your lower back covered, and water from entering at the hem, while upright or inverted by water in motion inside the kayak.

Outer waistband, together with inner create an "envelope" tunnel. Sprayskirt's waist tube fits inside. It has extended length so waist tube has full surface contact, for a better water barrier. This envelope blocks flow to the inside of your boat. The outer waistband is wide with a grippy inside surface to minimize shifting, slipping and to seal up the skirt.

The outer waist, has two Velcro® adjustments, one at each side to get a good seal in the "envelope". The adjustment is at the sides to minimize bulk at the stomach where you bend andalso to fit a wide range of waist Size.

The front pocket has a YKK urethane coated water resistant zipper and drainage at the base to release moisture.
