After using this skirt a couple
times I can safely say that it is
the driest skirt I've ever used.
Even my Nomad barely leaked
with this skirt. Can't get better
I love my new lucky charm skirt.
I had been using a cheap skirt
that I bought when I first started.
The difference is amazing.
This is a great spray skirt.
Used this recently on Swan
Creek near Ozark, MO at flood
stage. Tons of white water.
Skirt handled great. I have a
Liquid Logic Remix XP9 and the
size XL cockpit fits perfectly.
This skirt has the best seal and
is very comfortable to wear.
The rand material is strong, so
getting the correct fit is critical.
If it is too tight it is very hard
to get off and on.
Great skirt. Have used several
different IR skirts. For the money
this one is the best. Very dry and
Please read this review - it may save your life.
This skirt is no joke. To it's credit, it does not come off without
effort. For most flows, it will not implode.
I'm an amateur whitewater kayaker with 5 years basic
paddling experience. I don't know how to roll (yet) but I've
never been in a situation where it mattered. When I dumped,
the other skirt I used came right off and I popped right out of
We scheduled a Memorial Day trip down class III-IV rapids in
KY - our first 'big' whitewater. That's why I bought this one.
I knew to pull the handle if I dumped but I didn't fully
understand how difficult it can be to execute this maneuver
upside down in a fast moving rapid. Like I said, this skirt
doesn't come off easily.
The first time I dumped was in a class IV (Screaming Right)
where I got hydrolocked. I tried to pop out but this thing
wouldn't move. I fought like hell to find the handle while me
and my boat were thrown around like a rag in a washing
machine - upside down, under water. It took several attempts
to find the handle, a strong pull and I came out, only to find
myself still hyrdolocked.
If you buy this skirt, know how to roll or practice wet-exit in
calm water. My arrogance, lack of training and over
confidence nearly killed me.
Also, fitting chart showed that my boat needed a Large. Had to
send that back because it took three of us to get it on my
Wavesport Y. Reordered a XL which I can get on with some
effort (the XL is the size I had when I said to Death, 'not
Great skirt, perfect tight fit on
the cockpit, stays very dry
inside. I went for this skirt
because I wanted something
less likely to impload. This one
is rock-solid! Great price and
fast shipping from ACK.
The purchasing was extremely
easy. The delivery was
quick and painless. The product
It was really hard to get on
with one person, but after
leaving it on for a few days
helped big time..now i love it!
Solid spray skirt at a good
price. It has a nice grippy
rand, and the build quality
seems good. Got it cheaper,
with free shipping, from ACK
compared to direct from IR.
I recently used an IR Lucky
Charm for 18 days on the Grand
Canyon. I was happy enough with
it that Im buying another one
for my other kayaks!
Excellent for Remix 10 - LiquidLogic. Fits nice and tight, no
implosion. Of course, by being tight needs some strength, but
somebody using a remix 10, would be perfectly able to do this.
Disengages very well int he event of flipping over, and being unable
to recover your upright position.
