Ocean Trek SupraTex neo spray skirt w/ Knee Safety Release Strap is our best all neoprene sea kayak spray skirt. Our model has a short body tube so if you need to pump out your cockpit while in waves, the short tube feature makes it easier to pump with the skirt sealed to the coaming. Being all neoprene, this skirt makes a dryer seal than nylon tubes with a bungee cord etc., and it stays up without the hassle of suspender straps.

The knee strap gives you another option for opening the spray skirt in case you can't find the front release handle. In calm conditions we also use the knee strap to hold our chart, since you can't do much with a chart that's way up in front of the cockpit.

We are very picky with the fit and comfort of our spray skirts. So rather than simply selling skirts with standard S-L deck sizes and standard fore and aft locations of the chest tube on the deck, we work with Snap Dragon Designs to develop custom skirts for individual kayak models. We stock hundreds of spray skirts for the kayaks we sell and for many other sea kayak models that we don't sell including Pigmy plywood kit kayaks and NDK sea kayaks.

For example, we not only have special skirts just for the Wilderness Systems Tempest 170 sea kayak, we have individual skirts for the Roto-molded version of this kayak vs. the fiberglass version because there are slight differences in the shape of their coamings. You could just put a standard Medium deck spray skirt on either of these kayaks and call it good enough, but it wouldn't be as good on either of them.

This attention to detail is especially critical for spray skirts with non-adjustable tension in the shock cord (no knot in the back). Our skirts with non-adjustable shock cords are generally a bit looser fitting than standardized skirts; so they are easier to open and close. To make a looser spray skirt that stays on when it is supposed to (i.e. not implode when a wave dumps on it), it has to fit the shape of the coaming very well and have the chest tube located in just the right spot on the deck of the skirt - hence our custom sized skirts. If you try our skirt and prefer a tighter or looser fit, return it to us and we will have the tension in the shock cord reset - no charge. If you don't see a skirt for your kayak here, contact us about ordering a custom skirt.
