You can't put a price on keeping your kayak from sinking and these hatches keep my Chatham 17 hatches bone dry. Because they are airtight, those in warm climes may wish to do what I did and drill with the smallest bit available, a small hole between the bulkheads so that expanding air can escape when your kayak is out in the hot sun. Same with contracting air. My bulkheads have suffered damage in the past as a result of this issue. Also, as they do cost a pretty penny, be sure to maintain these hatches with 303 UV protectant. The only reason I gave these hatches 4 vs 5 stars is due to their eventual deterioration by UV exposure. It may just be the nature of the beast however… not sure that anything much can be done other than to forestall their eventual failure (mine lasted about 4-5 years) with regular application of 303.

Fits my Necky Chatham perfectly and great service by ACK, BUT the material this hatch cover is made with does not hold up great in the long term and the $79 for a hatch cover is too expensive. Problem is, though, this is all you can get and this is the price you have to pay...

These hatch covers are ridiculously expensive garbage. They deteriorate within 3 seasons. Do not buy them. Find a reasonably priced alternative.

The hatch was very good, but it did not arrive when it was supposed to. I had ordered it in order to take my Norkapp to the Apostles Island trip. but the hatched cover arrived late and I was scrabbling to get another boat to take on the trip.
