River Camping with the Rogue

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!

      The 2014 colors for the rogue have changed, it is now red, sprite (blue and lime green) or urban camo
      We tend to change colors for every season starting in august. If you would like blue steel you might be able to custom order it but there will be an up charge
      Happy Paddling
