Kilroy This sit-inside kayak design incorporates several other Jackson fishing features found throughout our sit-on-top kayaks. Features like the Hi/Lo seating in the comfortable Elite Seat 2.0, the fast Cuda 12 hull shape, enormous amounts of protected storage for fishing and hunting gear, protected rod storage in tubes along the sidewalls, interchangeable hard deck and optional soft deck options, and strategically located accessory mounting locations. It is also one of our most stable kayaks since the standing area is actually below the waterline, thus creating a very stable platform. The Kilroy is built with YakAttack tracks and comes standard with various RAM accessories. The Kilroy is tailored for the outdoorsman, offering features for the kayak angler, hunter, wildlife photographer, bird watcher, and anyone hoping to enjoy being on the water all while staying high and dry!

    Hi have owned my kilroy for two years now . It is exactly as professional as described . My fish count went up a lot. The most surprising thing that i noticed was how stealthy it is. I can just drift along with a sinking line and the striks just don’t stop. I purchased mine from Western
    Canoeing in Abbotsford BC they are very nice people to deal with. thanks Gord.

    I have had my Kilroy for almost a year and I absolutely love it! For me it’s perfect. It gives me the functionality of a sit on top with the security of a sit inside. I have so much storage room which I love because it allows me to keep things organized and out of my way. The seat is very comfortable especially with the lumbar support which is very important since we are usually out fishing for several hours at a time. The Kilroy is very stable and allows me to stand up and fish or just paddle to spot fish which is something I was afraid to do before. Although I have modified mine with a trolling motor, when I am paddling it is very smooth, doesn’t take too much effort and it tracks great. If you are a woman that loves to fish…this is the kayak for you!!
