Kayak fishermen looking for a tandem option with the speed and range of a Mirage Drive kayak need look no further than the "Outfitter" by Hobie. The simple design of the Outfitter creates an easy-to-use, performance-minded, kayak that will provide years of reliable use. Built-in drink holders and utility trays, dual helms and Mirage Drives—plus a mast step for the optional Sail kit—give the Outfitter serious legs, and the boat’s wide beam, relative to its tidy length, delivers a stable, stowable and comfortable platform.

Great for the wife and I

I rented on while down in the keys. Your not going to win any races in this thing, but for its intended purposes it is a great yak! Perfect stable platform for fishing hunting or just cruising around. Stable, dry ride. Well thought out features and construction. Did I mention stable? Got caught in a few larger swells and never once felt nervous. Would have liked to see a few more grab handles to assist in loading and unloading since it is on the portly side. Tip: Fully loaded with gear this thing is heavy and awkward to carry more than 10ft, a strong set of wheels is a must. What can i say about the mirage drive system that hasn't already been said? They are simply awesome. Hobie rocks!
