    Q:

    I have a 42 inch waist and have been triing to find a skirt that I could use. Would this one work?

      A:

      I'm not sure. I no longer own the item. The only thing it's good for is splash guarding. No good if you want to roll. And I'm not sure of the waist size. Sorry.

      A:

      I measured mine, and laying flat (not stretched out), it is 23.5 inches, so it would fit at least 47 inches around. As far as I can tell, it should work for you.

      A:

      This skirt will fit up to a 46" waist, but take a look at the Drylander Universal Skirt, # 52523.01. It fits up to a 50" waist and has a much nicer neoprene deck.

      The Small should fit your cockpit. We have an excellent, and free, exchange system if I'm wrong.

      I needed a skirt for a 22X23 C1 cockpit. This one is marginal for my needs but it has been wet.
      Snap Dragon has on old C1 pattern and custom made a whitewater skirt, via local dealer.

      A:

      Hi. I’m not sure if I have a large or not, but it doesn’t quite fit the plastic P&H boat I bought it for, but does fit the 18.5’ kevlar boat I usually paddle. Since Old Town seems to have huge cockpits in general, I doubt it will fit. I’d contact OT and ask them. I also prefer a skirt with shoulder straps. I love my Kokotat Gore-Tex skirt, but it’s definitely more money. Hope this helps

      No, Mike, it won't work for your boat. However, the NRS Catalina Skirt, Item # 2064, will.

      A:

      Nick, my web search indicates the Affinity has a cockpit rim 22.5" x 41", which is outside the range of the Basic Nylon. However, the NRS Catalina skirt, Item # 2064, will work for you.

      Hi. I bought mine for a 15.5’ plastic P&H Delfin. It wouldn’t quite fit, so I have to use my better one, a Kokatat Gore Tex model that I really like. It does fit on my other boat though, an 18’ kevlar Seaward Chilco. I prefer one with straps, generally.

      Randy, I don't find a Necky "Neskia" on their site. If you have an "Eskia" the cockpit is 34.25" x 18" and the Medium in this skirt would fit it.

      Bill, I believe the Medium size in the Catalina Sprayskirt, Item # 2064, will fit your cockpit.

      A:

      NRS Basic Nylon Sprayskirt - I got a Medium for a Current Design Suka Sea Kayak (18x32 cockpit).  The midriff is about 47" so 43" will work.  The 24" x 43" is beyond the sizing chart for a Large.  So the answer is no it will not fit a 24" x 43" cockpit.  Looks like a Medium NRS Catalina Sprayskirt  #2064 will fit the kayak (24x43).
       
      Hope this helps,

      • Growing kids
      • Learning

      Comments about NRS Basic Nylon Sprayskirt:

      I got two of these for teaching my kids kayaking. It took a bit of work to get the tension around the cockpit adjusted correctly and until I got it right the skirt was popping off every time he attempted a roll. But once we got it tightened up enough it worked quite well. Water does pool in the skirt and it is a bit leaky, but generally it is not enough to be a problem and the trade-off in terms of easy release for kids and adjustability as they grow is well worth it.

        Best Uses

          Comments about NRS Basic Nylon Sprayskirt:

          I am a begginer kayaker. I have a river runner with a large cockpit. The spray skirt fits nice and tight, yet it's easy to release if you need to wet exit. Water pools over it, not enough to be a distraction in moving water or class 1. The only issue is that the thing fits the cockpit via a supersized rubber band that is litterally tied in the back. When I went running class II that knot came undone and water came rushing in from the back of the boat. No big deal. I came ashore and fixed it right there in the river. If you are doing anything above class 0 make sure to double check and reinforce that knot in the back.
