Here's what other sites are saying:

The smaller size of the Old Town Dirigo XT 106 Kayak is ideal for transporting between bodies of water. If you are an after-work paddler with only a few hours to get after it each day, then the lightweight polyethylene material makes this kayak easy to maneuver to and from the top of your vehicle and provides durability in the water.

With an emphasis on comfort and fun, the Old Town Dirigo XT 106 kayak offers a stable ride and lots of extras. 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. Featuring an updated stern hatch in 2011, the Old Town Dirigo XT 106 is perfect for casual paddlers looking to explore lakes, bays and gentle rivers. Crafted from super-durable 3-layer polyethylene for affordability and a long life of easy care. Stabil-form(TM) hull design delivers outstanding stability and speed with exceptional tracking for its length. 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 trilaminate 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. New for 2011, the stern hatch seals with an audible "click," and a stern bulkhead helps keep contents dry. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern secures extra gear on board; toggle carry handles offer convenient transport to and from the water. Safety perimeter line offers a handhold for re-entry in case of a wet exit. Paddle keeper holds paddle secure when taking pictures, birding or fishing.


This feature-packed recreational kayak is designed for the casual paddler out for relaxation, fitness and fun – the compact size is easy to maneuver and car-top. New for 2011 is the addition of the Click Seal stern hatch. One quick click and your gear is stashed and locked in a safe, dry compartment. The roomy cockpit shape allows you to paddle with feet flat on the hull floor and knees up for a more natural and comfortable seated position. Foot braces can be adjusted even as you paddle. The Active Comfort Seat provides cushioning and easy adjustability. Front cockpit area features a dashboard with small waterproof compartment for your keys, wallet, cell phone or GPS. Rear watertight storage compartment opens with just the twist of a latch. Variable Layer Polyethylene construction creates a stiff, lightweight and efficient hull. Paddle park for stowing your paddle when you take a break. USA. Dimensions Overall 10'6" x 27¾"; cockpit 38" x 18½"; deck height 14". Capacity 300 lb. Weight 44 lb.
