I love the simplicity and functionality of Jackson Kayak’s outfitting. Jackson Kayaks are easily adjusted to fit different sized paddlers and easy to adjust on the fly (simply eddy-out or paddle into calm deep water, pop your spry deck and adjust).
One adjustment that I have found helpful in the Jackson boats is lowering the backband. Last winter, I experimented with lowering the backband in my Zen 55. After a few rounds, I have found a “just-right” position for it.
