Difference between AE skirts and other brands?

Post by diemonde » Sun Aug 16, 2009 1:29 am

Where I bought the AE Frame they did not sold the AE sprayskirt (or at least did not offer it to me). As the elastic in the skirt is pretty thick I am wondering, is the elastic in the AE skirts thinner to stay better on then other brands? If so I need to have a serious word with the shop.

The AE skirts are sized and made specifically for the AE kayaks. In the base of the skirt is a bungee cord that wraps under the coaming on the kayak. The bungee can be tightened and loosened so that you get a perfect fit. It is not like most other spray skirts that are designed for hardshell cockpits.

Ok, thanks. The store gave me Palm (size N5 - probally do not have the spray skirts from AE). Any experience with these?

No, we haven't had any experience with this.
