New Gear Love: Snapdragon LIPS Armotex spray deck (Spray Skirt)
I got my hands on some new gear a couple of weeks ago that I have been pretty stoked about so far. A randed skirt from Snapdragon designs. Named the LIPS deck it has the classic Snapdragon 'Armotex' top for better durability. So far I have been really impressed with 'dryness' of the deck, I have done full play sessions with barely any water entering my boat. The rand fits my boat(s) snuggly but without being a hassle to put on (fits Rockstar M 2014/16 and Nirvana perfectly), it has an easy to use pull tab/loop to take off which replaced the bulky plastic handle that the last Snapdragon skirt I used had way back in 2013 (which sucked because it was loud and heavy and unnecessary). The rand look like it is glued under tension which gives the best fit, and the deck is just one piece of Neoprene so it doesn't have a bunch of seams that can start leaking on you. Two weeks in I am very happy with it, although I haven't used it on any stout creeping missions or big drops yet I am pretty comfortable it is going to be a bomber deck (skirt).

I got a Medium tunnel but wish I had gone for a small as it is a bit baggy around the waist. untitled-0129820DCIM\100GOPRO\G0129820. untitled-0119817DCIM\100GOPRO\G0119817. untitled-0119812DCIM\100GOPRO\G0119812.
I just took delivery of one mounted to a Kokatat drytop. Loving the dry deck with this skirt.
