In May, Hobie unveiled the newest member of their H-Crate lineup, the H-Crate Jr. This is a great accessory for anglers with little space and plenty of storage needs.

In addition to incorporating all of the standard features that enthusiasts have come to know and love from the H-Crate, the H-Crate Jr. offers a more compact design. With a footprint of only 14x14, the H-Crate Jr. is perfect for anyone who is unwilling to compromise on features but has a smaller watercraft.

While smaller than their standard crates, the H-Crate Jr. features integrated rod holders, along with bungee keepers at each corner. For added convenience, this crate also has pre-drilled mounting locations in its grid wall, as well as molded-in nut spaces. This means that all you need to install additional rod holders is a standard Phillips screwdriver. Since the H-Crate Jr supports H-Rail integration, it is compatible with cup holders, camera mounts, tackle bins and all of the other H-Rail accessories by Hobie.

Space is a premium commodity on a kayak, especially the smaller models, so the H-Crate Jr. definitely fills a much needed niche. The crate can easily be attached to the deck of your watercraft using its 4 heavy duty strap and for storage or travel, it collapses flat to make it even more compact. Check out the video where Howie from Hobie Fishing gives a quick rundown of what you can expect from the H-Crate Jr.

Anyone still in need of additional storage space for safety gear, extra tackle or even snacks, should also have a look at the Hobie Vantage Seat Accessory Bag. It is a water resistant Vantage Seat Accessory Bag that is designed to fit on all Vantage seats, such as the one on their MirageDrive kayaks. It is an inexpensive solution that is packed with handy features, like an interior zippered organizational pouch, clear visibility window on top and a drainage hole to ensure that the contents remain dry. The bag also has heavy dutyVelcro attachment straps to keep it securely in place.
