Hobie has built up a solid reputation over the years when it comes to kayaks and the Mirage Passport 10.5 certainly doesn't tarnish this. It is a very versatile kayak that has got plenty of features for anglers to enjoy. This kayak is 10.6' long and 34" wide with a fully rigged weight of about 75 lbs and capacity to handle up to 325 lbs. Hobie made sure that the Passport 10. 5 can handle everything from open water to flats, so getting to the best fishing spots won't be an issue. It's a relatively compact kayak but doesn't skimp on any extras. Upfront you get a bow cargo area with bungee as well as a vertical accessory tub. Behind these, you'll find the Miragedrive "classic" with ST fins, which allows you to get around on the water without having to paddle with your hands. Between the pedal drive and the seat, there is also an easy to reach 8" twist-n-seal hatch. The hatch is designed in such a way that it can be opened with just one hand, but it is also sealed, so you don't have to worry about the contents getting wet. Accessory mounting tracks can also be found on either side of the kayak and there's space to secure a paddle. The Passport 10.5 comes with a suspended mesh aluminum frame seat and behind it is the stern cargo area with bungee. In here Hobie has included cargo scuppers for their Hobie cart and Hobie livewell that are available separately. Two flush mount rod holders can also be found behind the seat. Finally, right at the back is the steering system for the kayak with a stowable rudder. The Passport is particularly nice if you have a whole family of kayak enthusiasts, but don't want to go the tandem route. This is because the kayaks are actually stackable, which makes them much easier to store when they are not in use and to transport. The Miragedrive has a proven track record in terms of usefulness and performance, but the recessed hull space of the Passport offers additional protection for the fins. This means that there is less of a risk from catching on anything, which in turn allows this kayak to access shallow water with greater ease. It is possible to get a cheaper option if you opt for something without a peddle drive, but even with the slightly higher price tag the Mirage Passport 10.5 is a great buy.
