This is a follow up to a question I had asked here a few months ago about these skirts.
I finally did end up getting one.
I have to say it is a pretty cool skirt for the most part. I got the one with a draw string waist. It is super watertight when mated with a good top.
I like the lightweight of the skirt and the way it keeps out water.
Concerns I have are as follows. First I find it is hard to get on. I find it difficult to get the back seated properly under the rim. I think that maybe ordering a size bigger than recommended may be a good idea.
Next, I find the waist to be a little too big despite being the "proper" size from their site. I would maybe order a size down on the waist.
Last I am not sure it would be my first choice for the surf zone. I did have the skirt implode on me once. That is the first time I have ever had that happen to me. Also, due to the fact that it is hard to get on, I find that to be less than optimal for surf launching, or for those times on the water at the edge of the surf zone where you need to take your skirt off to sponge out some water, etc. I like something I can get on very quickly.
Also find that the waist is not a good seal when you don't use a top of some sort. No skirt is of course, but this design probably is less so.
I think this will be a great product to use in the winter with a dry suit, as it will be a nice comfortable fit under the spray skirt tunnel.
I plan to use this skirt primarily for dry suit use and for touring. Probably not for the surf zone.
