    Buddy 15-18 ft: Perfect fit for Wilderness System Tarpon 160s

    Posted by Kevin McAuliffe on Jun 20th 2023

    My last kayak covers from y'all lasted 7 years protecting my boats from the harsh weather, UV light and wind along the Florida Atlantic Coast. When they finally needed replacement, Danuu was the best value, had great workmanship, and proven materials to tolerate this intense climate.

    Danu Buddy Kayak Cover

    Posted by Shirley Hogarth Fargen on Jul 8th 2022

    Excellent fit on all 3 kayaks: 2 @ 18', 1 @ 16'. Incredibly easy to cover each, even for this 85-year old!!!. Highly durable as well.

    Buddy for my kayaks

    Posted by Daniel Low on Aug 24th 2021

    This is NOT a review of the Buddy I just bought, it is a review for the previous Buddy that I have had for almost 10 years. The one I just bought replaced that one that worked great for 10 years and finally the California sun got to it. We have another Buddy I bought 5 years ago that is still doing great, so I bought this one to replace the 10-year old one. The covers work great for my 16' 8" kayaks and I have no issues with them. I actually like the loose fit, It allows me to put it on easier and strapping it down makes it sufficiently tight for high speed driving. Love the red flag and the tightening hardware.

    Buddy cover

    Posted by Van VanBenschoten on Aug 5th 2021

    This is the first time I bought something from this company, it was highly recommended by a Portland Kayak Company and they did not steer me wrong! Cover feels of substantial quality it will not deteriorate in the sun in just a few months straps are in just the right place to ensure a nice snug fit on my kayak. Very very happy!

    BUDDY 15ft. - 18ft. cover

    Posted by Steve B on Apr 5th 2021

    This is the second kayak cover we have purchased from Danuu. Very high quality that stands up to weather and sun quite well. We only wish that there were more intermediate widths and lengths available in the product line to fit the boats more snugly.

    Fit the Solstice like a glove

    Posted by B.K. on Apr 12th 2019

    Just want to send you a note to say how impressed and pleased I am with the Buddy cover for my Solstice GS. It is great, easy to remove and put on with great coverage. The adjustments make the cover fit the Solstice like a glove. Thanks for the great product. **This review was re-posted by an admin of the site.

    Buying another

    Posted by C.C. on Apr 12th 2019

    I'm buying my second Danuu sea kayak cover. I love my first - it's covering the boat I rarely use. Now I need one to protect my other Explorer from the ice and snow. I hope to be out every weekend throughout the winter so I like your design that lets me remove the cover so easily. **This review was re-posted by an admin of the site.
