CONS: Price to high. Should come with all gut straps required.
PROS: Excellent cover... have bought additional tie off straps for
all gut ties. Have installed cover, towed kayak on my Yakima
RackRoll trailer at 55 mph with no problems.
PS: Did spray top with additional waterproofing... using tent
waterproofing that comes in a spray can. Used 3 cans, about $15.
Love this cover. Goes on my Old Town PDL fast and easy and looks
I bought this cover in 2011 and got 5 years of excellent service
from it. I just bought a replacement. I store my kayak outside,
upside down, and use the cover to protect the boat from dirt, sap,
birds, and UV damage. It has worked great - the hull still looks like
new. the cover is very well designed and the strap design keeps
the cover securely in place in any kind of weather.
I have a Wilderness System Pungo 140. The cover fits very well. I use
2 pieces of paranoid to tie the loops closed.
Recently took a trip to Maine and the cover took the highway speeds
with no issues.
My kayak stays outside all the time so the protection from the sun will
Glad I bought it.
The cover fit the Ocean Malibu 2XL perfect. It stays on the yak at 65
mph on the freeway with the built in red flag they thought of
I'm not thrilled with this cover. You have to pull a drawstring to
tighten it, but it took about 40 min to do that. I could only pull a
little bit at a time because of the thickness & stiffness of the fabric.
There should be a drawstring at both ends so you can pull one end
until you reach the middle, then pull the other end until the entire
hem is gathered. But, you have to pull from one end only & then
move the fabric, pull again, move the fabric. I think a thick, heavy
elastic would have been a much better solution or a looser hem so it
slides easily. Once I got it done & tightened the straps, it still didn't
fit snug. I couldn't find a drop-on cover that I liked any better, so I
didn't send this one back. It looks well-made & durable, but I'm not
that happy with it. I'm sure spiders & small animals can still get
inside my kayak & make a nest there.
Customer service was outstanding and it was shipped fast. Haven't
had a chance to try it out yet.
Very well made and enginerred
cover. The tie downs are in
all the right places. This is my
second set of covers, I got
three years out of the last
ones. I leave them out in the
desert sun stretched over the
kayaks all the time and leave
them on the kayaks when I
haul them. Finally the cover
material ripped when I loaded
the kayaks on my trailer. I
could have patched them but I
just bought new ones. They
work well to keep the sun from
bleaching the kayaks out.
Great cover! I have to keep my
kayak outside in the summer and
this works perfectly to keep the
sun and elements off of it.
For a universal cover, it's great! I have a 12'
slayer and this size cover can be cinched down
to fit my yak more snugly. I would
recommend getting some cheap bungee cords
or rope to keep the cover more secure under
the danuu cover is not
something that you need
you want to protect your yak
from UV rays ....exposer to
such in the long run will kill
your boat and then you can
buy a new one I always take
care of my gear ...the service
from ack is the best...fastest
shipping no drama thanks
