How To: Stretch a Sprayskirt (1:36)

To prevent water leakage and implosion, you want a neoprene-deck sprayskirt to fit tight to your kayak cockpit coaming. However, if it's so tight, you have trouble getting it on the rim or pulling it off in an emergency. In this video, we show you how to stretch the skirt a bit.

I've been a whitewater kayaker since 1992 and started more lake and sea kayaking in 2005. I have two of these skirts used on sea kayaks primarily used for day tripping on lakes and bays. The neoprene collar with Velcro adjustments at the top makes this skirt the easiest and fastest to put on; no fussing with suspenders or wiggling into a full neoprene chimney. It is much better than the full nylon skirts because it is easier to put on and seals better on your body and the boat. This design seals out water ten times better than a nylon skirt; however, these skirts leak a little more than those with full neoprene body tubes while rolling the boat. This small performance deduction is the only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5. For playing in the surf or paddling in cold weather a full neoprene skirt is preferred. An excellent skirt as long as your adventures aren't too extreme.

No matter how tight I set the velcro tabs it allows lots of water in during a roll. The nylon tunnel is very crinkly and noisy

                I think it keeps water out of the kayak pretty well, but frame of reference is that previously I only used a 30+ year old rental nylon skirt that had holes in it, so compared to that thing, I might think a tin foil skirt seemed great. Bearing that in mind, I think this skirt is great, but what the heck do I really know?

                        If you google, "Snapdragon skirts sizing," you'll find the Tsunami 140. Snapdragon recommends a large spray deck for your boat. Seals has it at 1.7, which is the size of the cockpits on my boats and the large snapdragon works well.

                        I don't know how thick it is without measuring it, but it must be at least a
                        couple of millimeters. But whatever, its good enough to do the job. It
                        does not sag.

                        Matt,
                        The neoprene deck is a bit thinner than my whitewater deck and also a bit less hot. The skirt in general is quite functional--it is comfortable, is easy to put on your waist and the deck, and effectively keeps water out. If you plan to do a lot of rolling and keep the inside of the boat bonedry, you'll probably want to consider a neoprene tunnel as well. For touring and comfort, however, this skirt can't really be beat in my opinion. We have both the glacier trek with breathable tunnel and without. I would recommend paying a bit more to have it be waterproof breathable.

                        I have ordered custom size glacier spray skirts on several occasions for
                        boats I have built and they have always been spot on and have served me
                        well over the years. My cockpits tend to be small, and I use a medium tube,
                        the two are compatible, no problem.
                        I recommend that you trace the outline of your cockpit coaming so that the
                        fit is just right. You might want to also order a cockpit cover at the same
                        time so they can custom fit that as well.

                        There ar two parts to skirt fitting; the deck to fit the boat and the tube to fit you. Go to the manufacturer's site www.snapdragondesign.com. In the upper left corner click Tube Sizing. In the second chart the Glacier tube sizing is listed. measure at the sternum. Note tube size.
                        then click Deck size. go to bottom on writing to the FIT LIST. On the secnd lIne click OCEAN/Trek Kayaks. Scroll down to Nigel Dennis and note the deck size is LV+ for the Pilgrim.
                        You will need both the Tube Size and the Deck size to order the right skirt.
                        I have 2 Glacier Trek skirts and highly recommend them unless you will roll the boat a lot or play in very strong sea conditions (hence the rolling). A full neoprene skirt is best for water tightness, but not the most comfortable.
