The NRS Super Stretch Neoprene Cockpit cover stretches over your kayak's cockpit to keep out weather, debris and critters. Super stretchy neoprene and an adjustable shock cord make it a snap to install on any kayak.
  • Two sizes fit all! The stretchy, adjustable Stretch Neoprene Cockpit Cover fits a huge range of kayak cockpit sizes. Just choose large or small.
  • Smooth-skin 1 mm neoprene sheds water and resists abrasion for long-lasting protection.
  • The shock cord band adjusts to snugly fit your kayak's cockpit combing. Tying a simple knot is all it takes!
  • Important Note: When placing cover on cockpits at the upper end of the two size ranges, it can be a tight fit. Leave the cover on the boat for at least 24 hours to let it stretch a bit and it should be easier to put it on the next time.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriends Liquid Logic XP10. His cockpit was just on the upper edge of the smaller size so I went with this and it fits perfect. Seem's really snug although it hasn't been on while driving yet. It's been doing a great job of keeping the snow & ice out of the boat between trips this winter. getting one for myself for those overnight trips to keep out any critters!

I thought this would be the perfect cover for he oversize cockpit on my kayak. However, after only 2 weeks of use the rubber coating on the neoprene has started wearing off. It gets all over my hands when I put the cover on. Also the elastic bungees used to secure the cover could be a little longer as they are almost too short to tie. Water also pools in the top when it rains and caused the cover to come off.

                    These kayak covers are a much better quality than the ones we had before. They are a thicker material. The fit was nice and snug. Only time will tell if they keep the water out over the winter, etc, but I fully expect them to perform well, based on how they went on and the sturdiness of the material.

                        The opening in my kayak is 57x22 so you would be OK with the length but
                        I really have to pull and stretch it to make the cover fit the width.
                        You could have a problem there.

                        Ed, I believe the Universal Plus cover should fit. Check out the Catalina Sprayskirt, Item # 52555.02. That boat's cockpit is pretty wide but I think the Large may fit it. If either of these don't work, returns/exchanges are easy and free.

                        A:

                        It depends on how tight you have the adjustable bungee. Properly tightened, it should work fine. With any cover being used for transport it's always a good safety measure to cinch a strap around the boat and over the cover.

                        The NRS kayak cover fit well and looked great, but I was paranoid about it flying off, so always tied it down to the boat while traveling with it. Overall, I wasn't impressed with this product, and can't recommend it. The seams quickly became unsewn, and the top layer of whatever material it's made of have shredded. It isn't waterproof either, so outdoor storage (which I never did) is not a good idea.

                        The Universal Plus size of this cockpit cover should fit your cockpit. Check out the NRS Catalina sprayskirt for a potential fit for your boat.

                        The Universal Plus Super Stretch Cockpit Cover WILL fit your Equinox 10.4 Kayak! It is a tight fit, and the edges do not wrap completely over the shallow lip on the sides of the cockpit. Not sure it would be suitable for high speed transport, but for covering in storage, this will cover a very affordable Costco Kayak well. I tried the Seals 7.0 first and it does not fit. Purchased at REI for $49.95

                        The super stretch is the "only" cover that will fit 120. The cockpit size is the same as my 140. My only suggestion is to only use this for transport or you will rapidly have problems. Due to it fitting extremely tight it can't take sun, rain, ect. Take it off once you get where you are going. NRS needs to make this cover slightly larger, if you have a problem call NRS and make yourself heard. I don't understand why they haven't corrected this since the Pungo family is one of most purchased series of boats. Hopefully not up the creek.... George

                        The NRS Super Stretch Cover will work for your boat. The universal plus size will fit a cockpit with up to a 57" length, and this cover can be tightened.

                      I have a Sundolphin Aruba 10, will the Universal cover fit that or must I go to the Universal Plus?

                        Mike, you can figure out which size would work best by measuring the widest and longest point on the cockpit and using our sizing chart on the product page.

                        My kayaks are 22.5” by 47”. As far as the length, it will be fine. Yours is 3.5” wider than mine. I found a scrape 2x4 (3.5” wide) that is 8.5” long. I put the cover on and was able to insert the 2x4 under the cover at the widest part. I am pretty sure it will fit your kayak too.

                        I have an Ascend FS10, cockpit measures 25" x 52". I bought the Universal Plus. It fits great, however it's a 2 person job. The more you put it on and stretch it, the easier it becomes. I put it on for long road trips as my boat is on top of the car sideways. It also works nicely to keep the critters out when storing.

                      Q:

                      I see from the description that the cover sheds water. Does that mean the cover is water resistant or waterproof? For example, if the boat is setting outside in the rain and in the upright position with the cover snug, will the cover eventually allow water to seep in or block it completely?

                        Snug is only so snug, eventually it will belly and let water in. You also wouldn't want to try keep anything really dry inside.

                        The cover would eventually let in h2o. Highly water resistant.

                        I never let my boat sit out for more than a few days with the cockpit cover
                        n so I am not sure how waterproof it is. I have kept it on and stored on
                        its side or upside down on racks and it works great this way.

                        The neoprene material itself is waterproof. The seams around the edge are not taped and not waterproof.

                        Unfortunately, this cover does allow rain to get into my cockpit. I store my boat in J racks mounted on the back of my garage, so it's more on its side than upright, so maybe that's got something to do with it. This surprises me a bit because the cover fits very snugly.

                        I cannot answer what it will do in this situation. I can say that I have used it while driving in the rain. Both kayaks were on top of the car sitting on their side. There was no water inside either kayak.

                        The Neoprene Cover does seep a little water even when the boat is stored on its side, regardless of how snug the cover is. If you are looking for a cover that will not seep at all, the NRS Deluxe Cockpit Cover is the better choice. The Deluxe Cover also seems to be more secure during transport as it has a better overall fit around the edge the cockpit because of the nylon fabric.
