- Supratex neoprene: Nylon reinforced neoprene that’s supple and stretchy, yet holds its shape, maintaining an excellent fit for your spraydeck.
- Small Diamond neoprene: A textured nylon face fabric adds abrasion resistance in wear and tear areas, without compromising the neoprene’s stretch.
- XP 3-layer fabric: Our performance 3-layer fabric is supple, durable, highly waterproof and breathable. Supplex nylon 6 woven face fabric has a great soft feel and is highly durable. A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged so that the fabric stays breathable. A hydrophobic, microporous polyurethane coating is applied to the face fabric. The pores are too small to allow water droplets to pass through, but large enough for water vapour to pass through to the outside air. The nylon 18 denier mesh lining protects the waterproof membrane and disperses moisture to provide the largest surface area for moisture absorption and transfer. Waterproofness: 20,000 mm. Breathability: 4,000 g/m2/24hrs. Breathability tested by the A1 method.
- Elastic shockcord: A bungee cord sewn to the spraydeck, which fits tightly around your cockpit rim. Shockcord spraydecks are very dry on a wide range of cockpit sizes, since they are highly stretchy, and they are easy to put on and quick to remove in an emergency.
- Gripsil: A grippy, durable coating which provides excellent grip and a watertight seal on your kayak’s cockpit.
If unsure of your deck size please measure and compare to the chart below.
N/R sizes (nylon or neoprene decks): Nylon decks are marked with N sizes and neoprene decks are marked with R sizes. Because nylon spraydecks do not stretch like neoprene ones, touring boats with exceptionally large cockpits will usually need a larger size nylon deck than a neoprene one. A size 6 cockpit will often take a size 5 or 6 deck in neoprene.
A tight fit: The easiest spraydeck to put on might not stay on the best or keep the most water out. Which is most important to you? A neoprene spraydeck will become easier to put on a kayak when wet, so wet out the edge of your deck as you get in your boat. Over time, a neoprene spraydeck will stretch with use, becoming easier to put on your cockpit. KNytex, Gripsil, and other protective materials will reduce the amount of stretch in a deck making a good fit even more important. Nylon spraydecks do not stretch, so make sure you get a good fit before you buy, especially with larger cockpits. These charts are only a guide, kayak cockpits vary greatly in size and shape.
