Very good and functional spray skirt for non-whitewater applications. I have 3 of these for my CD Storm, CD Whistler, WS Tsunami, and Epic 18X. Good fit and I went through an hour long downpour on the Allagash, I was dry as a bone.
The overall construction of the spray skirt is great, BUT... I was disappointed that the "adjustable" bungee was cut off so short there was really no way to loosen the fit, though it could be tightened. I may have to try and replace the entire bungee. The whole point of purchasing this model was to be able to loosen the fit of the skirt. Separately, a friend has just purchased the same skirt and had the same complaint! Some folks want to be able to have a looser fit around the combing for various reasons. ( I had already returned a neoprene spray skirt because it was so tight there was no way I could get it on or off reasonably, even with trying to wet it and leave it on the combing as mentioned in the online video.
Seals kayak sprayskirt: well made, fits and keeps u dry! Also tough durable fabrics. What more do u want?
I like the weight, the water shedding, and it feels cool. But, you can't trust Seal' s fit charts. You can get a response from their customer service. Joe will personally respond send you advice, but that doesn't mean that the wrong size is the right size. A 1.4 suggested for a Scorpio isn't staying on despite the Seals tricks (see their videos). The 1.7 (bought for my Zephyr, same cockpit but an inch wider) fits great. Yet Seals says to use a 1.4. Also Seals wants you to buy a bigger skirt for the Jackson Rogue 10 than for the Rogue 9 despite Jackson saying that the two have the same cockpit. I was too lazy to return it to ACK. Anyway, it's not ACK' s fault that Seals uses some formula for skirt fitting. BTW, I love the gray finished skirt.
