Very unimpressed...

I bought this for my Old Town Dirigo 106 to go on a kayaking trip with. After debating whether I should spend the extra money on a neoprene or not, I decided to go ahead and go with this cheap one. I ordered a small (36-42"x19-22") to fit my 38"x18.5" cockpit. They must have sent me an XS, because this thing would not fit. It took me and my two friends over an hour to get it on every time we put it on and then it popped of within a few minutes. It did stay on barely long enough to run the only class III+ rapid of the trip so I guess that is it's only redeeming quality. BIG letdown from NRS here... I wish I would have forked over a little more money for a real skirt. I will definitely be taking advantage of the 100% satisfaction guarantee. It's just a shame that I have to pay $7 to ship this piece of trash back.

Write your comment here...It is to tight because a Dirigo cockpit is 20.5" x 48"

Dan. At first reading your comment made me think the review was bogus, but I looked it up myself. The dirigo 106 cockpit is infact 18.5 by 38 as the reviewer said. http://www.oldtowncanoe.com/kayaks/recreation/dirigo_106.html

The reviewer should have tried a bigger size instead of calling it trash, and reviewed it saying to 'buy larger'.

I also hv an Old Town Dirigo XT 106. The INSIDE cockpit edge dimensions are 18.5 x 38 genius. Far as I can tell..the "trashiest" situation here would be your attitude & communication style.
