The SENTINEL Recreational Sit-on-top Collection is ideal for the paddler looking to enjoy a stable and relaxing kayaking experience during the warm season on calm or slow moving waters. The SENTINEL 100XR is specifically tailored to the paddler looking for the most comfortable paddling option at the same time benefitting from equipment upgrades that will make their experience more enjoyable. At only 48 lb and with its ergonomic carrying handles, the SENTINEL 100XR is easy to carry around, transport, and store. Built on our ultra-stable Multi Chine Flat Bottom hull, this kayak provides the ultimate relaxing experience. This Sentinel 100XR comes equipped with our Ergocast SB Seating System™. An extremely comfortable chair that allows you to adjust seat tension to make sure you get the support you need. Easily removable, you can also use this seat on the ground as you take a quick break to snack or relax. Adjustable footrests will also help keep you in the ideal paddling position. Bringing along everything you need is easy with the large rear tank well and rear 4"" day hatch with storage bag. You can keep within easy reach anything you tuck away in the front Quick Lock hatch. There is a convenient bottle holder, which will keep your drink within reach. Two convenient paddle holders allow you to quickly free up your hands, and four accessory eyelets allow you to add on additional accessories. Our unique manufacturing process allows us to include additional flotation inside the hull of all of our sit-on-tops in order to meet or surpass ABYC Standards. This overall process keeps our kayaks lighter than the competition while making them even more solid and buoyant. Made with patented RAM-X™ PREMIUM material, an exceptionally durable high molecular weight polyethylene that contains a top layer of advanced resin, which provides more rigidity while still being conveniently lightweight, the Sentinel 100XR will be around for years of great memories made in comfortable bliss.

Is it possible to disassemble (remove top) to clean, empty fluids and solids trapped in base? Mission 100 model

Asked by: Trish
Impossible to do so, you would need to use the drain hole at the back of the kayak near the carry handle.

Hi! Could someone please explain the differences between the Sentinel 100XR and the Sentinel 100X EXO? I see a few changes, but can’t figure out where the $100 difference is, especially as it seems like the $270 XR has more features than the $370 X EXO.

How come none of your retailers sell this kayak?

Asked by: Lost a customer
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.

Can this kayak be used in bays where the could be some light chop or is this strictly a calm water kayak?

Asked by: Mark
This kayak offers great stability and great tracking. Our kayaks are not made for choppy waters but can definitely handle some light chops. It is always best to check the weather prior to planning a day on the water.

The front top plug does not snap down.  It has a small pivotal arm but won’t lock when pushed down. Is that how it is designed?

Asked by: Debs
The plug is supposed to lock down completely. If you think this might be a defect please contact our customer service department 1-888-669-6960 with the serial number of your kayak (ZEP)
