The Dirigo 120 Kayak by Old Town is a decent option for kayak enthusiasts who are looking for something to use recreationally along with some occasional angling. It is a sit-inside kayak that is 12' in length and 27.75" wide. The Dirigo 120 also has a carry weight of 50 lbs, while offering a maximum weight capacity of 350 lbs. For durability and strength, the Dirigo 120 features a three-layer polyethylene construction and also has better stability and control thanks to its Stabil-form hull design.

This kayak is intended for a solo paddler and has a contoured poly seat to provide you with optimal comfort and support. Excellent grip and comfort are also provided by the glide track foot brace system of this kayak. Also, the Dirigo 120 has thigh pads to help with control of the kayak as well as to provide added comfort.

In terms of storage, the Dirigo 120 comes with a click seal hatch with bulkhead for safely securing your gear. Smaller accessories can also be stored safely in the glove box hatch of this kayak. Additional gear can be secured on deck by using the duck bungee and the Dirigo 120 also has paddle keepers to secure your paddle while you are busy fishing. As it is not a dedicated fishing kayak, it lacks a rear tank well that could be used to store a milk crate and does not have any built-in rod holders either. It does, however, come with a safety perimeter line to provide paddlers with added safety. The Dirigo 120 even comes with a cup holder for your convenience.

Other useful features range from retractable carry handles to make it easier to carry or transport the kayak as well as a drain plug to keep it dry. If you are serious about angling and plan on taking a fishing rod as well as fishing gear with you on every trip, then the Dirigo 120 might not be the best choice. However, if you want something that is mostly going to be taken out for recreational use and the occasional angling, then you'll appreciate the roomy cockpit, great stability, and easy-to-paddle design. It offers a lot more space than you might think, though, and it is a very manageable kayak for its size. Add in some decent aftermarket rod holders and the Dirigo 120 becomes even better.
