The Palm Coniston is perfect for using with recreation kayaks. It is lightweight‚ with a ripstop nylon high-back touring deck designed to fit a wide range of kayaks. To fit a wide variety of cockpit widths and lengths the Coniston features an adjustable shockcord fastening. By tightening the rear adjuster buckle, the shockcord circumference can be reduced to fit on smaller cockpit rims or for a tighter fit on larger ones. The shockcord runs through a tough polyurethane sheath around the deck, which helps it grip. This makes it ideal of use as an emergency spare for personal peice of mind or group saftey.
