I am new at all of this, first skirt I have owned so I have nothing to compare it to. Feedback from my friends who have been kayaking for quit some time, they say its a good skirt. The only pain was the first attempt putting it on. My friend was saying I should been able to get it on dry and that was not the case at all. After even being wet it took 2 of us to get it on and took some time. Maybe cause its new??? We thought it was the wrong size at first. I have a feeling after some use it should be no problem.
