Oh, the luxury of getting out of my kayak without a drop of water on me! It makes me feel as though I was just playing around with my previous skirts. The only water now is what drips off my shoes when I get into my boat. This is not a skirt that will just slip onto your coaming with thumb and forefinger. Austin Kayak told me that I would need to be strong enough to bench press 40 pounds to attach this skirt, and I believe them. But once it is attached, my kayak is sealed tight. Don't be put off by the conventional "knowledge" that a neoprene skirt will be too hot. Your cockpit is not cooled by excess heat radiating through the skirt. It is cooled on three sides by the water you are floating in. I found not the least difference in cockpit temperature between this skirt and the thin nylon skirt I had been using.
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
