The Old Town Dirigo XT 106 is now 10% lighter than previous models, and it still offers the same stability, speed and comfort that casual paddlers have come to know and love.
Short hull is great for small paddlers who want a kayak that's easy to transport to the water and easy to control on the water
Crafted from rugged, 3-layer polyethylene for a long life of easy care
Stabil-form™ hull design delivers outstanding stability and speed with exceptional tracking for its length
New for 2010, the Active Comfort System (ACS) seat offers a convenient and intuitive adjustment system
Orange pull straps provide 4 adjustments: backrest tilt, backrest height, lumbar support and thigh support
Lateral stabilizers lock the seat into the boat to maximize responsiveness; finger channels on the seating surface enhance airflow and drainage
ACS seat base uses a tri-laminate construction that's similar to a running shoe, providing support where you need it and softness where you want it
Thigh pads and adjustable footbraces personalize the boat fit to enhance stability and control while paddling
Glove-box hatch handily stores cell phones, keys and wallet inside a sealed compartment; built-in cup holder also included
Generous Space Hatch™ cargo well in stern swallows up gear while the rubber hatch cover and bulkhead keep it secure and dry
Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern secure extra gear on board; toggle carry handles offer convenient transport to and from the water
Safety perimeter line helps aid in re-entry attempts in case of a wet exit
Paddle keeper keeps paddle secure when taking pictures or fishing

This recreational kayak has been great. My husband and I both bought this model, after friends (who also bought this model) told us how much they enjoyed it. We're beginners but after one summer I'm sure we'll enjoy these for years to come. Tracks well, lighter than most models we looked at, and adequate storage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
