Like the wonderful wading waterbird for which it’s named, whether you’re exploring coastal lagoons, mangrove swamps, salt marshes or inland freshwater lakes and rivers, Jackson Kayak’s Ibis is right at home. The bird is gregarious with a tendency to wander and we think you will be too once you see how stable and easy the Ibis is to paddle.
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.
