If so what size do you have and does it leak?

Cheers

I have used them before on a large Agent and Nomad. Not sure what the model was (one with the implosion bar) but I did have issues with it. It wasn't that it didn't stay dry it was that the stitching came undone on the bungee. They warrantied the skirt for me (no issues and with great customer service) but within a month the second one started doing the exact same thing. I was in Costa Rica at the time and just ended up giving it to a local (I got sponsored by Seals at that time so I couldn't use it anyway. Besides they need all the gear they can get down there!). Not sure if it's a Dagger cockpit rim/Snapdragon thing or if I just got really unlucky.

Big Nomad, large deck. I think I got the sizing from their website.

It goes on fine, but you may fit a smaller one on. Depends where you're getting it from I suppose, whether you can afford to choose the wrong size.

Dryness wise, it's as dry as any other deck I've used.

Durability - had it 2 years, no problems. That said, in that time my boating has become significantly less regular, sadly.

I had a large deck on a Mamba 8.1 - Bone dry - The seams have eventually come off, but only after about 3 years of heavy use - several times a week and a few trips to Africa where gear seems to wear much harder!
