When it comes down to it, if you're swimming who really cares about a $20 piece of plastic? It'll come off when you need it to, kee in track of it on the other hand is another story. I've got a skirtworks skirt where the pull loop is mounted to the top of the skirt & can pull it without removing the hand paddle, not that I would ever swim of course...
I popped my skirt on my creeker with my knee while caught in a sieve on wfcc a couple years ago, but have never tried it in my playboat. I always assumed that it would work if I needed to I guess, got me wondering.
