Nice medium duty skirt. Goes on well once you get to used to it.
Quite comfortable, not hot at all, even on hotter days. Handy
zipper tunnel makes on & off easier and gives access to cockpit.
Pulls off easily & quickly. Good for medium-duty use in small waves
and mild whitewater.
Negatives are: it leaks just a little from small waves, probably
through the zipper; water pools on top despite the rounded metal
stay. The skirt can come off on its own accord when rolling over
without pulling the handle, which sort of defeats part of the purpose
for having a skirt. So, I imagine that this skirt will not be the best
for whitewater. Maybe should upgrade to full neoprene skirt if you
intend on doing bigger water.
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.
Good skirt. Comfortable and works well.
Perfect product for the purpose of
keeping a paddler dry and
comfortable. I particularly like
the zippered deck which allows
you to get to your pockets, etc.
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.
spray skirt works great to keep
you fairly dry even when your up
on your side, keeps rain out
I ordered this to use on a planned sub-
freezing flatwater river paddle. A rainstorm
dumped 3" of rain just prior to the paddle,
leaving us with plenty of rapids to play in. I
stayed dry and warm, despite not zipping the
tunnel all the way. This will come in handy for
the balance of our winter paddles, provided all
the waterways don't freeze!
This spray skirt is fantastic.
As soon as the members of my
kayak group saw it three more
people ordered it. It fits my
Perception Carolina 12
perfectly. It is heavier than
some and doesn't sag in my
lap like some. The zipper
front makes it easy to grab
things from the cockpit and the
two exterior pockets allow my
cell phone in its pelican case to
be ready when needed. This is
a great product.
Great skirt for what it is designed
for. Not as water tight as
neoprene, but excellent choice for
moderate water resistance.
The skirt is a proper fit and the
zipper is a great idea.
I've only used it once so little
input to add. Can only rate
The service was spot on.
