.Igger’s inertia neoprene spray skirt for whitewater kayaks is a collaboration with Palm UK. The inertia is designed to stay on the cockpit of your kayak and keep you dry throughout the most extreme conditions. Available in two cockpit sizes (medium and large) and three waist sizes. This is top of the line, won’t come off or leak version of a spraydeck . For use even when your boat is fully submerged under a waterfall option.
The inertia features a heavy-duty rubber rand rather than the traditional shock cord and hugs the cockpit rim more tightly making it the preferred choice for advanced white-water paddlers
Kevlar-reinforced neoprene on the deck edges provides superior protection against abrasion caused by rocks, paddles or other boats. A durable coating underneath provides excellent grip and a watertight seal on the cockpit.
The dagger inertia’s waist tunnel features an extended body tube with a proprietary conical-shaped seal at the top that keeps the tunnel up and water out, whilst making it comfortable to wear all day.
The grab handle is made from red 38mm webbing and features and attachment clip to help with hanging from lines to dry after use.
Made from high quality supratex and CR neoprene which is triple-glued and bind-stitched the durable construction is finished with melco taped seams.

Finding the right fit
Choosing the proper deck size for a neoprene spray skirt is not an exact science and is dependent on the abilities and strength of the paddler. A more experienced and stronger white-water paddler may prefer a tighter fitting skirt to better resist implosion, though it is more difficult to put on and remove. The opposite is true for less experienced paddlers. It is better to underestimate your abilities to put as skirt on than to overestimate, one way you are out paddling the other you are still struggling to put your spray deck on.
