I know I need to send it back (probably wait till winter is in full swing), and Level Six is great about returns and warranty, but sending shit to and from Canada is the biggest pain in the ass.

The skirt that will last is snapdragon. Big difference is the deck being made from a single piece of material rather than a bunch sewn together. I think they make a randed skirt now too.

I have a rand style IR skirt. I have never had any issues with it not staying on a boat or leaking.
Immersion Research's customer service is top notch, and they stand by their products.
The glue was starting to fail on my skirt (I think I bought it in 2012). IR put a new rand and pull loop thing on there for me. It was really easy and fast.

Thanks IR

Seals Pro Rand is also my go to right now. They can be found a lot cheaper than the high end IRs.

I like my Ace from Level Six and also the Bomber Gear skirts have treated me right. Get those before they're gone!

Been pretty happy with my IR Royale

I've got a pretty good collection of skirts I should sell right now.

Feel free to make offers on Snap dragons. one with armortex and one without. These were new last year, and saw no use this year.

couple wildwassers that are a few years old.

All are Large tunnel and Xl or Xxl decks.
