If you're a recreational paddler this skirt may be overkill but if you do any distance paddling you want the best. A buddy and I used these skirts on a 1515 mile paddle around the entire state of Florida. The trip took 4 months to complete. We relied on our skirts to keep us dry and protected. At times, we paddled in 6-8 foot swells and up to 5 miles out. The Seal Extreme Tour skirts took a beating and were pretty much bombproof even after daily use and abuse. They performed exceptionally well. Love these! KayakAroundFlorida.wordpress.com
Let me start off by saying I have a Dagger Apostle 17' touring kayak. This boat is almost 20 years old. Many of the other sites and products I looked at would've made buying a skirt for this kayak a guessing game. ACK & Seals took the guesswork out of knowing what size I needed to purchase and made it easy. The skirt itself has very nice fit and finish. Elastic draw a cord that goes around the cowling is nice and stiff and the material covering it is nice and grippy. The suspenders clip off easily and the Velcro tabs on the sides make it easy to put on. The quality of the stitching is good, the water will leak in if it puddles around your waist. Through no fault of ACK or Seals, I wish I had gotten the next model up. The descriptions on this website did say that the skirt with the neoprene tunnel would keep water from pooling around your waist and shed it more effectively to the deck of your canoe. Bottom line: If you're going out for light duty summer days and you don't want watering drippingin to your kayak, this is the skirt for you. If you are going onto the ocean or will see waves, do yourself a favor and buy the next model up. I'm sure that it too would be of the same excellent quality.
