Lucky Charm or Bombshelter for Nomad?

Its time to purchase a new sprayskirt for my Nomad 8.5 and I'm looking at either the IR Lucky Charm or Bombshelter, both the same price on sale. I was using a bombshelter before and was pretty happy with it except the Large deck was a real beast to get on the Nomad. It became a safety issue a few times when perched precariously for a seal launch or needing to get back in the boat quickly(so I just sold it). That said it was super dry and am thinking of sizing up to the XL deck or trying out the Lucky Charm. Any input is greatly appreciated!

great thread lol
lol. awesome input so far
my only contribution would have been based on what i just purchased, which was the Snapdragon Armortex... it came highly recommended. XXL deck fits like a charm on my Superhero.I struggled for 3 yrs with my old NRS skirt. it fit adequately if soaked, but it was stupid tight until then. too much of a PITA, especially in cold weather.
The Bombergear skirts are def really nice tho, that was my 2nd choice...
