Dear Jackson Kayak,

Earlier this Spring I purchased a Jackson Rogue kayak with plans to self-support multi-day runs in and around the 4 corners area (Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico). I chose the Rogue because I wanted a boat that would travel more efficiently and offer greater comfort than my creekboat, while offering better stability and maneuverability than a traditional touring/sea kayak. The Rogue seemed like the perfect combination of hull speed, comfort, and convenience for anything from an overnighter to a week-long self-support trip. And it was. As a bonus, the Rogue turned out to be the ideal boat for rehabilitating my shoulder after a season-ending creeking injury earlier this Summer.

Thanks for saving my kayaking season!
