Jackson Kayak and Realtree, have partnered to create a kayak that appeals to the waterfowler, creating another tool in the fishing and hunting sporstman’s arsenal. Their new Realtree Edition Kilroy is a 12-foot multi-functional sit-in kayak, wrapped in Realtree’s top-selling Max-5 camouflage, “that promises to keep waterfowlists safe, dry, concealed and successful in a variety of settings from flooded marshes, to stillwater lakes and ponds, rivers, mud and flooded timber.”
“We’ve transferred the wonderful performance, storage, comfort and organization offered by the Kilroy into the waterfowler’s arsenal of hunting tools,” said Jackson Kayak Product Manager Damon Bungard. “Fin or feathers, cast or blast, the Realtree Kilroy gives you the ultimate sporting platform.”
The Realtree Edition Kilroy comes with features specifically designed with the waterfowler’s needs in mind, including custom Realtree Max-5 camouflage boat graphics by CamoWraps, and these other Realtree Max-5 features:
• Soft Deck with large pocket for storage of the fitted blind system, ammo, calls, headlamps and any other items requiring quick access,
• Fitted Blind System that allows you to convert the boat to a mobile layout duck blind, sporting zippered panels to allow access to gear, space for a dog, and other smaller openings to access the YakAttack gear tracks for use of RAM or other accessories,
• Removable Decoy Bag that stores securely behind the seat and comes with a shoulder sling for easy carrying out of the boat,
• Slip-on Seat Cover to conceal the seat when the hunter is not in the boat or just protect the seat from muddy paw prints.
“The kayak hunting market is growing with a passionate following, so we wanted to partner with a boat manufacturer that exhibits the same innovation, love for the outdoors, and corporate and family values as Realtree,” said Kyle Pelletier, Licensing Account Manger for Realtree parent company Jordan Outdoor Enterprises. “We are proud to put our name on the Kilroy and believe this kayak showcases the fact that both companies prize innovation, are building on a history of developing game-changing products and demonstrating an ongoing commitment to being made in the USA.”
“Ideal for a wide range of sportsmen and women from 120 – 250 pounds the Realtree Edition Kilroy is made of incredibly durable and abuse-resistant rotomolded polyethylene. The kayak weighs 69 pounds and has a recommended load capacity of a beefy 375 pounds. MSRP is $1799.
The Realtree Edition Kilroy will debut to sporting goods buyers at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City Aug. 4 – 9. In addition four new sportsman specific boats will also be unveiled at the trade show for kayak anglers from big water freshwater lakes to oceans, to inland waterways and transitional environments in between.”
