I got 2 of these for my son and I to use on a Carolina 14.5 and a sea lion. Both newbies to kayaking we used these on a short river trip (41 mi 2 days) and they worked well. When a frog choker hits, you will get a drip of water through the zipper after a while but most of it flows off. Plowing through troughs it keeps the water out also, unless you leave it unzipped, then it channels cold water to exciting locations. I couldnt wear a skirt without a zipper in warm weather for 8 hours and the 15 year old called the zip pockets "snack pockets" 10 seconds after seeing them. I hit a rapid poorly and demonstrated a wet exit with the skirt on for the scouts. Its my story and I'll tell it my way. Skirt worked as it should.
Used the skirt on a Old Town Kayak. It worked great. Fit was tight and held up to lots of water over the deck. Pockets are nice to have for quick access to my GPS and camera. The zipper made accessing the inside easy while sitting in the kayak with the skirt on. After about a years use the zipper broke at the beginning of a trip. My friend also bought one and the zipper didn't even last for the first trip. Its a good idea, but I am not sure it works.
Love the easy in and out of the Sneak skirt as well as being able to unzip and vent more on hot days. It does leak quite a bit through the zipper so I would not wear it in cold water conditions because of that. Do wish it were a more watertight zipper, but other than that, the skirt is great.
I have owned a Seals Sneak Kayak Spray Skirt for two years. I original purchased it for my Perception Carolina 12 which required a 2.5 size. I then purchased a Stellar S12 which requires a 2.2 size but I found I can use my 2.5 skirt on both kayaks. I love the zipper feature as it allows me to gain access to some of my equipment which I store in the cockpit. I find the skirt easy to put on and secure to the boat. I have recommended this to 4 friends who have purchased it and seem to like it as much as I do.
