SPARTA, TN (July 2016) Jackson Kayak’s Tupelo LT is a lightweight, thermoformed version of the popular Tupelo recreational kayak series. This ultra-light version is comfortable, loaded with features and ideal for those looking for an all-around boat that’s light, comfortable and easy to use.

Kayakers will appreciate these Tupelo LT features:
• Lightweight at 35 lbs.(40 lbs. with seat) for gliding and transporting with ease
• Sit-inside design provides a lower center of gravity than sit-on-tops and offers better protection from weather
• Open cockpit design for easier entry/exit, easier to shoulder and minimizes weight
• Large cockpit design allows ample area for gear, dogs or extra passengers
• Stern hatch and bulkhead storage to secure gear. Hatch has rubber seal to keep water out
• Elite Seat System with Hi-Low and movable foot pegs for customized comfort

• Standard accessories like a water bottle holder with Nalgene® bottle and screwed-in insert mount for Go Pro® cameras in several locations around the kayak
• Outfitted with YakAttack track systems to add accessories within easy reach
• Also available in Realtree AP® Camouflage

The Tupelo LT thermoform design provides nimble performance, easier transport and a streamlined look.

“So nice when loading on the car, so nice when gliding across the lake, so nice to look at! All that and the most comfy seat on the market. All I could hope for in a kayak,” said Joe Pulliam of Jackson Kayak.
The Tupelo LT will be available at Jackson Kayak dealers in 2017. Manufacturer suggested retail price is $1,299.
