Great spray skirt, its doing its job keeping me dry.
Big Waves and Big Boofs...no problems.
I see a few reviews on here saying that the IR skirts are superior or that the SnapDragons implode...I'm just going to come out and say that these SpraySkirts are awesome! I have paddled some massive rivers (Futalefeu, Rio Baker, Lohit, Stikine, NF Payette, etc, etc) using my SnapDragonDesigns Armortex EXP w/implosion bar, and have NEVER (knock on wood) had an implosion.. and I have taken some massive beatings...mostly because I ****. With that being said, I have mostly paddled Liquid Logic boats, which have reasonably well designed cockpit rims. This is where sprayskirt failure lives and dies. For example, a ton of the earlier Pyranha Burn paddlers were suffering the demise of sprayskirt blowout (no matter the manufacturer) because their cockpit shape was so ridiculously shaped. I.e. those cockpit rims were ******. Take it from me, the team at SnapDragon does a **** up job on their product and they are bosses when it comes to repairing gear cost effectively to avoid living in a throwaway society...or yeah... and to keeping us paddling hard and our wallets a little fuller. Also, they make a rubber rand if you call up your retailer and ask for it specifically.
