BY OLD TOWN CANOE — $900-$1,100

Twenty years after debuting its best-selling Loon sit-inside kayak series, Old Town Canoe has remade the venerable classic after two years of R&D by lead designer Bob McDonough. Available in three sizes, from 10 feet to 12.5 feet (100, 120, 126) and two angling versions (100 Angler and 126 Angler) the new Loon line boasts an all-new hull design with extra width for stability. Equipped with a comfortable and easily adjustable ACS2 seat, the Loon also comes with a new "work deck" with USB ports and built-in storage, letting you outfit it with tech gadgets of your choice.
