I'm surprised how many paddlers are not familiar with this type of "half-skirt." I love mine. It has a generously-sized zippered storage pocket on top. It keeps the spray and sun off your legs. It's easy to get on and off because it doesn't need to be tight like a full spray skirt. I use mine on both my 14 ft. Eddyline kayak and my 8 ft. "rubber duckie" kayak.
