Outside's Joe Jackson recently took our beloved crossover, the Katana, for a test run. Below are some points from his review:


  • Excellent tracking with the easy-to-use drop skeg
  • Comfort is where this boat really excels
  • Possesses excellent accessories as an overnight boat
  • Perfect for beginner paddlers due to it's super stability and amazing performance in flat water
  • Also great for intermediate/advanced paddlers for it's amazing overnight trip capabilities

"All in all, I had a great time in the Katana today. I'd suggest it for any paddler."
