Dry Deck

Hi, I am wondering if anyone may have a suggestion on how to measure for a dry deck waist skirt size. I normally take an xs waist size what do you think? Thanks, Lynn

Quit kayaking and start rafting, that will take care of your XS problem.

Lynn, I would go into your local kayak shop and just try a few on. If you trying to buy online, then that will also give you the size to order when back on your computer.

There isn't much need for a waist measurement when getting a dry deck. The size of the neoprene material that attaches the drytop to the skirt deck is of similar size to the waist area of your drytop (maybe a touch smaller). Just make sure to get the proper fitting drytop and include your waist size to whomever sews it together... the manufacturer who sews it together will do the rest.

When I got my dry deck from IR the only thing they wanted to know was what size drytop I wore and what size deck I needed to properly fit my boat.

I'm pretty sure it is the same thing if Snap Dragon were to sew their skirt onto a new dry top of yours. They only really want to know which boat you will be using it on...
