A kayak with one of Hobie’s easy and elegant MirageDrives is quick. Adding a second really pours on the speed.
Bring along a friend, your significant other, or a child—dual helm control means either of you can steer this wide, stable hull. Or go solo. The Outfitter is the more compact of Hobie’s pair of rotomolded polyethylene tandems, a little easier to store than its larger sibling. Room for two doesn’t mean sacrificing storage: utility trays, a trio of Twist and Seal hatches, and a large rear storage area provide plenty of room.
