Your mom tried to tell you the best things in life came in small packages, but that was on your birthday and she was trying to pan off breath mints and gently-used lip balm as a killer present. Well, mom might have been wrong that birthday, but she's dead on the money when it comes to the Jackson Kayak Sit-On-Top Cruise 10 Kayak. This little piece of heaven hops and skips through the lesser known creeks as you cram your creel full of fish or splash with unfettered joy in the cool creek waters on a hot summer day. The bottom of this boat gives you a taste of speed, though baby 'yakkers might struggle a bit at first. Once you get your sea wits about you, room remains for you to stand watch or strip a fly line. The cushy Elite seat goes up when you need a clear view of the watery world around you and lowers when you want to glide by without notice. Adjustable foot pegs mean your paws aren't left flapping in the wind. Both the day and bow hatches are roundly wonderful, holding waterproof bags containing your lunch, a beverage or three, camera, and your smartphone. The stern tankwell leaves room for gear in dry bags or a cooler of beer, both of which stay put due to the bungee riggin. Up front, slip your rain shell under the on-deck rigging when you're uncertain about the weather. The GoPro mount stands ready to take your waterproof camera and the waterbottle holder gives you no excuse for finishing the day parched. Small and sassy, this boat should fit into most dorm rooms, condos, and apartments--unless you live in a San Francisco micro apartment (and then you're just SOL).
