I used the Ocean Tour Expedition Reinforced spray deck for my trips in
I really appreciate the fact that my Snapdragon skirt stayed on in the roughest conditions I encouraged during my record-setting paddle around
For my "Race around Australia" trip I swapped to the Glacier Breathable, which has the same solid pre-bent deck, but an adjustable, breathable collar, which seems pretty reasonable not only for the hot climate in OZ.
I do own additional customized Snapdragon spray decks for my other kayaks.
To keep the rain, sand and any strange, curious or hungry animals out of my fully-loaded kayak at night on a trip, I use the lightweight Snapdragon nylon cockpit cover. It’s easy to store and very useful.
