Overview

According to one review, the Borealis XL "is really the big guy's dream—a quality kit touring kayak that combines a grand size with great looks and good handling." The Borealis XL is a high-volume solo touring kayak suited for paddlers weighing 230 to 300 pounds. At 17 feet, with a 25.5-inch beam, 13-inch deck height, and extra large 19 by 36-inch cockpit the Borealis provides the volume, stability and ease of entry that bigger paddlers need, yet tend to have trouble finding.
