Whether you are traveling or storing your kayak, the NRS Neoprene Cockpit Cover is a great way to keep out the elements and critters.
  • 4-mm neoprene is waterproof and extremely durable, able to keep out unfriendly critters as well as windborne and falling debris during storage.
  • A rugged shock cord along with a rubberized inner deck coating grips the kayak combing from the inside, resisting slippage and giving you a secure way to keep your gear and the inside of your boat dry while traveling.
  • Stretchy nylon outer covering makes it easier to get on and off while looking pretty sleek as well.

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.

                  Comments about NRS Neoprene Cockpit Cover:

                  Hard to get on the cockpit rim, and tight when on. That is great for travel as it showed no tendency to come off, even at 80 mph. Use a strong cord as a safety through the pull loop to security handle. Kept rain from a serious storm out of the boat. To get on, place the pull loop over the front of the cockpit first, then pull/stretch out and back. I found this to be easier than installing from stern to bow. Initially this may require help, as would a new sprayskirt.

                    Kayak cockpit size: 32.25 x 19.5.
                    Would I need a small or medium Neoprene cockpit cover?

                      A:

                      In addition, all neoprene tends not to take well to the sun so store your kayak upside down with cover on. Also when storing for extended periods with cover on make sure inside the kayak is completely dry or you will have a foul odor develop especially in the summer! Hope this helps.

                      It is a really really tight fit. The bungee is super snug and strong. Have to brace the kayak to get it on by myself. I recommend a Large.

                      A:

                      If you look up your cockpit size on Skirtfit.com you will see it is 34.25"
                      x 19". You can use this to decide what size cover to get but it will depend
                      on how tight of fit you want. Hope this helps.

                      Mike:
                      The cockpit on the Jitsu is 34x19. I checked NRS's sizing, a medium will
                      provide a really snug fit, the large a bit looser fit but both will work.
                      Between you and me, I was not very pleased with the NRS cockpit covers.
                      Snap Dragons are much better and around the same price (I'm assuming a
                      neoprene cover). My wife and I have 5 sea kayaks, I have 1 NRS cover and 4
                      Snap dragons. My 2cents.

                      cockpit cover and 3 Snap Dragons. The Snapdragon covers are higher
                      quality.Make sure to size your cover properly!

                      Depends on boat, how you have things tied down, the amount of heavy truck traffic and wind direction. It will stay on in most instances. I put a belly band around the kayak and cockpit cover when I use the cockpit cover. The belly band is a 6ft strap and I can use the strap as a grab point when I am heave-hoing boats.

                      no problems.
                      For us the cover is very tight and absolutely waterproof. It is a little

                      Yes,I do believe it will stay secured. But as always you have to use common sense. If your boat cockpit is such that you can pull this cover off with your pinky then the answer is no. I had to use some muscle getting this on and off my kayak. (Perception Dancer XT and Mirage) I hope this helps.

                      I have made 300+ mile trips with this cover on a Piranha Burn. The kayak
                      was on Yakima Hully Rollers on the back and Mako Aero Saddles on the
                      front.
                      Speed was 70 mph most of the time. There were a few times I reached 80 mph
                      for less than a minute. It has always stayed secured. I have no doubt that
                      the cover would stay even at a constant speed of 80 mph. Never heard it
                      flapping or making any strange noise.
                      As a side note, the reason I limit vehicle speed is not the cover, but the
                      rack. I don't like to strain the rack nor the attachment points on the
                      vehicle. In any case, I always tie a cord between one of the kayak's
                      handles and the cover's release strap, so I don't loose it in case
                      something unusual happens.
                      Hope this helps.

                      As long as the cover fits snugly on the cockpit, it should be fine.

                      I have used it on a sea kayak carried at freeway speeds no problem.
