Purchased the Loon 106 since it was Made in America. Old Towns shipped to my house (affordable!) and it was easy to track its progress.
It comes with all the bells & whistles; (1) Safety first: it has a bulk head! (2) It's easy to sit in & get out of and the seat is easy to adjust and remarkably comfortable. (3) High quality thigh pads and footrests are also simple to adjust. (4) In addition to the rear seal hatch, it comes with an additional sealable workspace that snaps into the forward portion of the cockpit that I can stuffy my camera gear in and it includes a USB port! This workspace is removable if you don't want to use it. (5) Weighing in at 56 lbs, I have not attempted to to place it on the roof by myself yet.
I'm extremely happy with the Loon 106 and it will be with our family for a long time!
Best rec kayak I have ever been in. Stable and well made,the seat is the most comfortable I have ever sat in and I love the cockpit .I use it for both river and lake kayaking and I have been kayaking for twenty years.Well worth the price.
It was comfortable and I was able to fish much longer than normal. I started fishing for flounder (I had never before). I fished a couple hrs but had no luck. I realized I must be doing something wrong but didn't know what. I decided to change my tactics and species! With this change and my new Loon kayak, I had my limit of nice speckled Trout within the next 3hrs! I can't wait until I can go again!!!
If you are looking for the perfect angler kayak I recommend you take a look at the Old Town Loon 106! A little pricey but if you love to fish and go often you won't be disappointed!!
I have been out on the river several times now and have had no regrets. Several times I have had people stop and ask me if Old Town is has good as they say and my answer is always YES!
