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.

High Quality Neoprene Cockpit Cover

By None

from Spokane, WA

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Verified Buyer

Comments about NRS Neoprene Cockpit Cover:

This cockpit cover is a high quality accessory to keep junk out of your kayak. The fit is snug, especially the first time it is used. There is a good loop to secure the cover to your boat, in addition to the cockpit lip.If your cockpit measurements are near limits of one size, we suggest ordering the larger size. This will stretch some but not as much as the 3mm cover.

Service and delivery comments:

Very fast delivery, and generous return privileges!

    Comments about NRS Neoprene Cockpit Cover:

    This cockpit cover works well. It is a tight fit and stays put even on high speeds on highway. I gave it 4 stars because of the sizing. My deck is small according to their measurements. It takes 2 people to put this cover in place because it is so tight. I did not exchange for the next size up to see if it would work better since it works well despite the need for help, and I was afraid the next size would fall off. My experience with these things are limited.

    Service and delivery comments:

    My product was fine. It arrived well packaged and in good condition.

            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.

              I have an Easy 15LV 34.5 x 19.5 and I bought a Large.
              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.

              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.

            Will the Large work on an LL XP10? Cockpit dimensions are 36"L x 21.5"W. It appears this product might be a half inch too short in length but I thought someone might have been able to get this to work (it's stretchy, right?).

              I think it was made in Taiwan? The quality is decent, but I would recommend
              a Snapdragon cover over the NRS. I have 4 sea kayaks - I have the 1 NRS
              cockpit cover and 3 Snap Dragons. The Snapdragon covers are higher
              quality.Make sure to size your cover properly!

              It always has for me. Sometimes, as an extra precaution, I put my web tie
              down strap through the loop. As an aside, it is a very tight cover that
              requires some strength and finesse to get on.

              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.

              A:

              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.
