I really didn't mean to turn this into a discussion about the merits of wearing a spray skirt, I merely meant to qualify my lack of expertise on which skirt is a good one.
As I said, I did have the occasion to don the new Seals that I bought for my new kayak. I was very pleased with the fit and grip on the coaming. The new skirt has suspenders, which none of my other skirts have; I liked how the suspenders held the skirt up in place.
I was a little disappointed with the stay until I discovered that it had gotten turned over in its pocket.
