Nice fit... stays on during transportation on the top of my SUV. Reduces the howling wind noise by a good margin and therefore drag on my vehicle and gas mileage should be slightly better. Keeps bugs out of it during storage as well. The trick to this is it's air tight unlike some of the others. This is what I wanted so that it would reduce drag while transporting it... BUT... it also means I have to wait a couple days after hanging my kayak up before putting the seal on or I will mildew the inside of my yak by trapping the moisture in. There are other products you could put on ASAP to just keep bugs out and let the yak breathe a little more so keep that in mind if you need something you put on as soon as you get home.
Good quality durable design. Make sure you get the right fit, and don't expect it to necessarily fit drum tight. The safety strap is just a piece of webbing with a buckle. Good product though, worth the money for a travel worthy rain proof cover.
I have four of these now and use them on all my sit in recreation yaks. They are VERY well built and fit tight. Most of all, they do keep rain out of the hull even when left upright for months out in the weather. My only gripe is that the security straps don't seem to fit around the hulls of my 28"-30" beamed rec boats. Not a big deal as they work fine for storage without them and don't drive with the covers on anyway. I'd give it a 5 if they put a little more thought into the straps.
No kayak should be without one. During storage .. no spiders, no surprises. During transport .. keeps things inside the kayak right where they are. Just undo the belly band and flip it offf and you're ready to go. Going on whitewater? Don't forget to change from cover to spray skirt.
