Go with a PA to stay the driest, as they both have a raised seat.

Of the two you mentioned, go with the Outback, but wear breathable waders as previously suggested. Due to the seat design it doesn't allow for drainage.

Test pedal both and decide for yourself. Out here in the PNW most bigger guys have Outbacks and most lighter guys have Revo 13s. I am 6'3" to 6'4" and weigh 215. After trying both I got an Outback. I took a bunch of wakes over the bow with the Revo. The Outback was slower but dry. Plus I liked the deck space of the Outback.

Everyone has different tastes don't let anyone else tell you yours.

Consider the Oasis. I've heard from people who have used a lot of Hobies that the rear seat in the Oasis is the driest in the fleet (maybe that doesn't include the inflatables or more recently introduced Pro Angler). I have an Oasis and find the rear seat to be very dry, and it makes a great and very capable single, plus gives you the option of taking a buddy.
