I've been paddling for a zillion years and seen a lot of boats and there is no better hatch cover than these old school Kajak Sport hatches. My current ones are from the late 90's and still water tight. (I'm buying a new day hatch cover because I yanked out the little tab pulling on it the wrong way one day when paddling.) After playing all day in ocean surf, my day hatch and forward hatch will have let in NO water. My large, aft hatch will have let in less than a teaspoon. They don't seem to be affected by sun. They are not hard to put on, but not as easy as some. Frankly, I'd rather not worry about my hatches when doing high-stakes paddling and I've seen a lot of people pull their dry bags out of puddles. I guess I just want to give a shout out for these hatches because I'm picky and totally into what I do, and it's nice to get something good that really works.
Works great...using it on a Sirius M for the day hatch....perfect.
