Large zippered mesh pocket
The large zippered mesh pocket offers ample storage space for keeping your essential items secure and within reach. The mesh fabric allows for quickly identifying items and prevents water from accumulating. This means you can store snacks, water bottles, and small electronics that could get wet in the main cockpit area without worrying about them getting damaged.
The bungee rand provides easy on/off access to quickly and securely attach it to your kayak cockpit. It allows for a snug and customizable fit, accommodating various cockpit sizes.
Durable urethane-coated nylon
This sun shield is made of durable urethane-coated nylon, providing superior protection from the elements. The nylon material is water- and UV-resistant, ensuring that it lasts through extended exposure to sunlight, saltwater, and other harsh conditions. The urethane coating protects against abrasions, tears, and punctures, making the sun shield a reliable and long-lasting accessory for any kayaker.
The implosion bar is an innovative design element that prevents water from pooling on top of the sun shield. It reinforces the structure of the shield and ensures that it maintains its shape even in wet conditions, preventing it from collapsing due to the weight of water.
