The Immersion Research Shockwave Sprayskirt is a great skirt for beginner to intermediate whitewater kayakers, or sea kayakers looking to add rolling to their bag of tricks. The Shockwave is made with a 4mm Supratex neoprene deck and casing, and a 3mm neoprene tunnel. It also features silicone sticky patches under the casing on each side help prevent the skirt from slipping in implosion- prone areas and all seams are glued, stitched and taped. Mid weight bungee construction is easy to put on and dry on a wide variety of cockpit rim profiles, and will stretch to fit a wide variety of boats.

Love IR products and they have great customer service also. Skirt is very comfortable. Tunnel would be long on someone who is short waisted though, but could easily be rolled down. Received product from ACK in a great time range also.
The skirt seems to leak when playing on class 2-3 holes and waves. Its a little better than my other entry level skirts. For class 2-3 river running there is minimal leaking. Ive had the skirt about 4 weeks, not sure how well it wears. Overall it is satiafactory for an entry level skirt.
Overall, this product is performing as I expected. I have no technical issues to report. The tunnel fit is actually larger than I had hoped in following the fit guide.
This is the first sprayskirt I've purchased and quite happy with it. The quality of the material and stitching seems very good. The sizing chart was accurate and the skirt fits me well. It works great on my Dagger Axiom and I'm experiencing very little water leakage. Great buy.
