      A:

      My Seals master sizing book says the Liquid Logic XP-10 takes a 2.2 nylon spray skirt and a 2.5 neoprene. If we're referring to the Catalina spray skirt, I have a Perception Prodigy 10 with the dimensions stated; 38" x 21.5" and the Catalina shown, which I seem to recall is an X-L fits it perfectly. Hope this helps. You can double- check at the Seals website for the 2.2/2.5 sizes in inches to be sure.

      A:

      My boat is a Costco boat made for lakes and rivers. Quite a big cockpit. Since I also use the boat in white water, I had to get a different sprayskirt. This one will fill with water and I was afraid it would implode and swamp my boat.

      A:

      My kayak is a 14ft Necky Manitou with a cockpit size of 18 x 37. I think that the spray skirt is large and it fits fine and could expand to fit a slightly larger opening. I don’t know if it would stretch to 24 x 43 but would guess probably not. So if there is a bigger size than large, get it.

    Q:

    Would this skirt work with an inflatable coaming? I own a Advanced Elements Airfusion kayak with inflatable coaming area. I wonder if this product fits an inflatable because inflatable coamings do not stand as rigid as hardshells. Have NRS or other kayakers tried this skirt on an inflatable?

      A:

      Sejong, we don't have any direct experience with this sprayskirt on the Airfusion. Looking on Advanced Element's website, they have similar skirts, with adjustable bungee cords, so it probably would work.

      Ruth, you are indeed on the cusp of the two sizes. I suggest you order both and keep the one that fits best. Our returns are easy and free. The Catalina has a 7"H tunnel, the Basic 8". The Catalina is the better skirt.

      Sorry that it took so long to get back to you, but yes I have a kayak very
      similar to that. Just be sure to get a good size measurement of the
      cockpit, and use their sizing chart to get the right fit. You will be able
      to make some very small adjustments, but the size chart they have is right
      on. Hope you enjoy the skirt as much as I have.

      Sarah, the Prodigy XS has a pretty small cockpit. The Small NRS Basic Nylon Sprayskirt, Item # 2019, will be a better fit.

      I don't know. My cockpit is 39in long. It was a little loose letting water get in on the sides. I use my kayak in white water which was not very good for this skirt. The water would pool between the body and the front of cockpit.

    Will the large spray skirt fit the new larger opening of the Equinox 10.4 kayak that Costco sells this year? The cockpit is larger than previous year models.. We are having a hard time finding something to fit this larger opening.

      I don't know the answer, but I do know the cockpit size of the Equinox 10.4 that Costco is selling in 2014 because I happen to have one in front of me.

      51.5" x 25.5" Hopefully that will help get an answer from the expert because I have the same question.

      A:

      Equinox only lists the size of the actual opening, not the rim. You'll need to measure it and compare to the sprayskirt's sizing - L- 51"-57" x 19"-22"

I bought this spray skirt to be able to run more challenging routes without swamping my 10' [...] Manatee (read: gussied up Perception Prodigy). In short, I love to tackle holes and standing waves head on, but without a skirt, I'd usually take half of the wave with me due to the Manatee's 54" long by 32" wide cockpit. This gigantic space to cover, accompanied by the tendency of rec boats to have high gunwales with low seats is the only reason I can see for water pooling in the skirt (which is does, but you can easily brush it off with your hand, or simply raise your knees to disperse it over the side. This skirt seems to breath rather well, and the light color means that you won't be roasted alive in your boat in the summer sun. After 12.5 miles on the South Branch of the Potomac while running the biggest holes and waves I could find, I had a scant 2 cups of water in the bottom of my boat (which were most likely from me entering and exiting) while my wife (who ran easier and less swamp-inducing routes) had a few gallons in hers. A definite must-have for rec boaters who like a little white water but aren't ready to move up to a smaller (and more expensive) boat.

Water may pool and eventually leak into the boat however it serves its purpose and has proven itself when padding in high surf

    Comments about NRS Catalina Sprayskirt:

    The skirt kept water out of my lap, with some water pooling on top of it which was easily shaken off. It was hard to get on but I think that is more a function of the large cockpit size on my Pungo kayak, no fault of the skirt.

    Watched the video online, about how to adjust skirt to fit to the boat's cockpit . Went right out on the lake, had 15-20 mile and hour winds waves 2-3 feet of chop and the skirt performed beautifully ! I had a few waves completely go over the skirt and it didn't leak a drop of water! Superior product, fits nice and snug around the cockpit, easy to install, it far and away exceeded my expectations !

    I have a necky manitou sport. Its a river running boat. The only skirt I can find for my boat is a nylon. I took this into class 1-2. If you get the skirt on as far up as possiable on your chest, you will be ok. It will still kinda pool and then start to slide down.IF you could find the suspender type I think that would be a little better. Its miminal leakage though. Just make sure you pull the skirt TIGHT around the boat.lol (the first wave it came off on me) I would say if you got a big open cockpit boat. Your pretty limited to what you can use. This is good as any.
    NRS is pretty solid on all there products

    Comments about NRS Catalina Sprayskirt:

    I bought two of the skirts to fit the Equinox 10.4 kayak. My wife and I use them on a mountain reservoir and lakes so the water is cold and the skirt does a decent job of keeping you dry. After a long paddle the water does pool on the skirt and the waterproofing is subject to leaking in spots. I sprayed my skirt with ScotchGuard and that helped. Overall the skirt is an excellent buy for the kayak that I have and performs well enough for the money spent
