Is the IR Shockwave good?

I just received a shockwave skirt and I am wondering about the quality of it. I am using my friends spare made my Mountain River (which has gone out of business) but his is so much beefier... Maybe the IR has newer, better material to do the job, I don't know.

My friends skirt is made from much thicker neoprene and the bungie on it is probably 3/4 inch thick. The IR's bungie and material is about half that thickness all around, I really hope it will keep the water out and last a few seasons.

I guess I am wondering if I should send it back and just get a better one.

Thanks in advance

I have a shockwave, no problems with it, works fine. Albeit my special K works better, but harder to get on.

Thanks Linedawg, that does make me feel a bit better. I guess I will keep it and see how it goes.

I have an IR shockwave as well as a shockwave plus. Great skirts and even better customer service. If you ever have a problem just let them know and they will take care of you!

Your post makes me feel much better. I was worried when I got it and compared it to the skirt I am using now. I guess it is all about the materials/technology.
