This seating system is easily adjustable and is made with a breathable fine mesh. It also features adjustable footrests and premium knee pads, ensuring a comfortable and cushioned position. An upgraded hatch with included storage bag and increased overall storage makes bringing your gear along easier and more convenient. A convenient bottle cage and secondary bottle holder will ensure proper hydration is always easily within your grasp when spending long days out on the water, and a paddle tie-down helps keep your hands free while casting your lines.

Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great kayak! Ive had this Kayak for about a month and its pretty solid! Im a big boy, 6'2 & 270 lbs and it has plenty of space & super comfortable. The built in knee pads & adjustable pedals are great. The removable seat is also super comfortable. really smooth cutting through the water & easy to maneuver. pretty steady kayak, especially for my size. Ive done quite a bit of fishing on it, the rod holders are def a plus. The water bottle, phone holder, & paddle straps are great too. The storage in the back has plenty of space as well. Overall, a great Kayak. I really enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High back chair, dry storage, very light, fully accessorized, spacious yet fits inside Honda Pilot I bought this few days ago. I've been looking for a kayak with removable high back mesh chair, not a molded in chair. Cannot find on a recreational kayak under $600. But this one has it! High back, comfortable, adjustable, removable, breathable mesh. I am using a lifevest with mesh over lower back, fits great in this kayak. Has dry storage, easy to open and lock securely, large opening, things don't get lost. Very light for one person to carry, including the chair and all the gear I need. Fits inside a Honda Pilot without removing kids seats. Fully accessorized: 2 rod holders, 2 track systems, bungee cords. Knee pads, great for comfort. Easily adjustable foot rests, not molded in. Large cockpit: so spacious. My knees do not even touch the rim of the cockpit, I'm at 5'11" and 200 lb. Molded in paddle rest in the front, also paddle holder with bungee on the side, easy to access, very secure as has 2 hoops to secure the bungee instead of 1. Has build in foam on the two side of the chair for better floating. Ergonomic, east to reach, comfortable carrying handles. Very impressed with the quality and all the features. I do not see myself to need to add on accessories, as everything I need for recreation paddling is already installed. For the price of $399, I consider this was a great steal ! Cannot wait to take it on the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and light Seat is very comfortable, pads for knees are great, adjustable foot rests great. I am tall (6”2’) and fit great. I like the storage compartment in the rear with lots of space. The plastic is soft... can bend with fingers, but it doesn’t bother me. Light enough for me to carry but maybe not for everybody. My first kayak. I like it. I think it tracks well and is somewhat fast but I’m not an expert. I really like its design and shape. I just think all kayaks sold in East Coast are overpriced compared to West of here from reviews I see online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the seat and adjustable foot pegs! Took it out today on the river, swift moving water, tracks like a dream and maneuvers great. I'm 5'7" 160lbs, would not think it would suit well for folks over 6' 200lbs. Best recreational kayak I've ever used!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice kayak First of all, I will say this is NOT a white water kayak. I will repeat. This is NOT a white water kayak. I am 6’1”, 220 lbs. it’s a great size. I have lots of leg room and it tracks nicely. I use it for creeks and on the river. Has good stability and I’m never worried about tipping over. They could make use of the large bow up front by adding more storage but that’s not a big deal to me. There’s plenty of room in the back one. Adding a true cup holder would’ve been a nice touch. I love the seat. Very comfortable! I would recommend this kayak!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable, Very Stable and FUN I'm so glad that I bought this model, the seat is incredible and can be used on the shore for relaxing. I've had it out for a total of about 10-12 hours already. Can't wait for a Covid free summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginner kayak fishers Got this kayak a couple of weeks ago and had in the water a few times fishing in creeks, choppy lakes, and big ponds so I’ve moved in 1ft to 40ft of calm and choppy water and In my opinion it’s stable, and have good balance between being able to track and maneuverability. I wouldn’t take to any rapids though. I’m 5ft 3in and the pit and 25” so there’s plenty of space for couple of tackle boxes. recommendation was 210cm to 220cm paddle. I Got the 220cm field And stream Chute paddle to go with it and I’m very happy with it. This kayak extremely light which makes it easy to load and unload from the roof rack and carry a good distance from parking lot to water. Dry storage behind the seat is pretty alright but much rather it be space for A tackle bag/crate or a EXO Pack like the Pelican sentinel 100X and dry storage could’ve been up front there’s a ton of empty space up there just for a couple of bungees and a pelican emblem. the water bottle holder works great with small water bottles. The chair is very comfortable ,probably what makes it worth it for me. Im happy with this purchase but the only annoyance with this sit inside kayak is draining the water not all of it will empty out through the hole in the back left of kayak. Oh and I definitely recommend getting some kind keel protectant if you like to drag your kayak.

Looking for a pioneer 100xr. I spoke to one of your customer service personnel who gave me a phone number of a company in Quebec that doesn’t sell pelican products. How do I find this boat? 

Asked by: Aaron
Unfortunately, we have no visibility on in-store inventories. Our products are generally purchased by head offices and sent from their distribution centers through to their stores. We recommend that you use the retailer locator and call them directly for in-store availability details. We only sell our boats through retailers; there is no possibility to buy directly from Pelican. With the end of the summer season, many dealers will be ordering their new inventory in March 2021. We suggest that you check with them at that time.

Is there additional storage accessories that can be purchased for the sitting area? I bought this kayak recently and loved taking it out but storage is lacking.

Asked by: eml100xr
Nothing that can be added to the kayak itself, but you could take a look at the awesome new bags we have!
