The 10 Best Kayak Spray Skirts

This review has been updated 8 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Just because you like going out on the water doesn’t mean you want to get soaked. These spray skirts can help you stay dry and comfortable when you’re kayaking, as they fit over your body and the cockpit to prevent rain, splashes, and drips from ruining your day. It’s important to note that, while they can keep you warm, they’re not a substitute for a wetsuit in the event you capsize. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the review.
