Product came on time and was what I was expecting. Fits the cockpit well and stays in place in use. The splash skirt does what it is supposed to: divert water and debris from falling in your lap. The two bows form a nice curve so everything runs off. The mesh zippered pocket allows easy access to anything stored there, though they get wet. The heavier the objects, the less curvature though. I keep a waterproof camera and GPSr in the pockets and they are easy to get to and secure. You can also keep a GPSr on top of the pockets (so you can use it and read it underway) and secure it to the mesh top or through the zipper so it can't slide off. If water starts to pool, pushing on the underside to lift the curve lets it roll off. Not perfect but works for me. You can get in and out of the kayak with the splash deck in place fairly easily. All in all works pretty well and I'm happy with it after using it a half dozen times.
Good product. I have a Dagger Delta. I havn't figured out what the cross strap is for yet. Other than that it works good.
This is my second skirt, purchased on few years ago for my wifes kayak, this is for my Old Town Dirigo 12. They have made two changes to the new model. Added a second "brace" to keep the skirt tented which is perfect. Now the fabric goes all they way around the cockpit, where the old model stopped mid way and only the elastic cord went around. Sounds like a good improvement, but these are pretty generic fit so on mine there is a lot of fabric bunched up in the back. On the old model you could just stretch the cord to your size and cut to fit. Not a deal breaker but not an improvement, especially since it is only a half skirt.
Perfect for a leisurely paddle. Nice storage pouch as well.
