Description

Perception Truefit Spray Skirt | Kayak Spray Skirt

The Perception Truefit Spray Skirt is designed to keep water out of your sit-inside kayak. It is the perfect accessory for your Perception kayak, providing a secure and dry paddling experience.

The P13 size of this spray skirt is compatible with various Perception kayak models including Joyride, Swifty, Odyssey, and Sound. It can also fit other kayak cockpits measuring 53-56' (length) x 22-24' (width), ensuring a snug and proper fit.

Constructed from ultra durable nylon, this spray skirt is built to withstand the demands of kayaking. It features an adjustable neoprene chest band with removable suspenders, allowing you to customize the fit for maximum comfort.

The water-resistant tunnel zipper is a convenient feature of this spray skirt. When unzipped, it allows hot air to vent out, preventing excessive heat buildup. When zipped closed, it keeps you dry by sealing off the cockpit from water intrusion.

The sticky edging of the spray skirt grips the cockpit rim tightly, providing a secure and reliable seal. This not only keeps water out but also adds extra durability to the skirt, ensuring its longevity.

The Perception Truefit Spray Skirt is designed for recreational and touring kayaking. Its Sport Type is specifically tailored for these types of activities, making it an ideal choice for paddlers who enjoy leisurely excursions on the water.

I have a Whip It model. What size spray skirt should I get? And are these skirts suitable for whitewater?
