The Basics: Embedded in the DNA of Jackson Kayak is a commitment to championship excellence so for the Ibis, we called on the industry-recognized champion of rec boat design and asked him to put all his best thoughts into one super sweet boat. It doesn’t get any better than this. Destined to be a classic in Jackson Kayak’s rec/touring line, the Ibis is the most versatile kayak in its class, attracting paddlers who put a premium on comfort, performance, storage capacity and value. For comfort, a padded knee area combines with our super-comfy, removable Elite seat that’s a dream on and off the water.
The Ibis delivers on performance and aesthetics thanks to its highly efficient and straight-tracking hard-chined hull and a look inspired by traditional kayaks. Our unique approach to gear storage means the Ibis is a delight on day trips and a real workhorse for overnighters. Stuff your daily needs in the on-deck storage bag for easy and quick access to gear and goodies without having to open a hatch. At camp at night, park the Elite seat next to the campfire and gain hatchless access to overnight gear stored in a dry bag behind the seat.
Best of all, at least in these economic times, the Ibis is long on features and benefits and low on price. $799.
A boat to call home on the water. Highlights of the Ibis:
- Novice and casual paddlers will prize the Ibis for its value, stability and ease of use.
- Experienced paddlers will appreciate the boat’s smooth paddling attributes; generous storage capacity makes it a nice option for protected conditions and overnight trips.
