The Harmony Touring Miniskirt is convenient and form-fitting. Miniskirts fit a variety of cockpit sizes and shield you from spray, splash, and the sun. It also provides you with a handy surface to change lures or lay out your charts. Fully adjustable bungee creates a firm fit on most recreational kayaks.
I purchased this mini skirt to go with my Perception Conduit 13. It's perfect! I like the fit and the fact there is some boning across the skirt so it arcs up just a little. It helps keep water off the legs and out of the boat. I don't feel claustrophobic using this mini skirt. I usually paddle lakes and calm rivers and creeks.
Originally, we loved our touring miniskirts (we purchased 2). They fit our Wilderness Tsunami's and kept us dry. However, on one of the miniskirts we ordered, the part of the skirt that flexes to provide the canopy and water run-off broke when removing it from the cockpit cover. So, I ordered a replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement, as well as our second skirt, broke in the same place. So, I now have 3 miniskirts that cover the cockpit but drip water onto our laps. The part does not appear to be replaceable. Not sure if I'll order another Harmony touring miniskirt or look for a different brand (e.g. Seal).
Shock cord was too short to fit around the cockpit on my Carolina 12. So I cut the cord and tied in an additional length of shock cord and now it fits fine. For me tightening the draw string pulls the cover off instead of arching it like in the photo. So I cut a strip of 1 x 2 to provide a little arch so water will run off to the side. With these slight modifications, I am very happy with the skirt.
Nice product. I had to do a minor modification to fit my kayak but it works great. Prior to purchasing I had a question on the size and your customer service rep took the time to measure it for me. Excellent customer service! many thanks
