The Wonderful World of Sit-Inside Kayaks!

Payette 116

Payette.jpgThis kayak season we are stepping up our game!  Exciting right?  Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction!

I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116!  This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off!  It comes in at 9’8” and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.  The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak!  Think “best of both worlds”: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak.  The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make for easy transport.  Need to take some snacks with you on your paddle? The Payette 116 has a cargo hold with a cover for on water storage of those items you just can’t paddle without.  We’ve also added some stellar foot braces that can fit a wide range of heights making it easy to let those star struck friends and family take your new kayak for a test paddle.  Make sure you get it back though!

If you happen to be a fisherman, or maybe you know someone who is, it’s your lucky day!  We love this new kayak design so much we turned it into an Angler - Poof!  While the standard Payette 116 will come in a beautiful bright orange, the Payette 116 Angler version will be a tan color that won’t scare away the fish you encounter on your adventures.  The two flush mounted fishing pole holders and top mount rod holder that are included make this kayak a regular fishing machine!

Check out the Lifetime Store online to get your hands on one of these kayaks or visit our friends at the Sports Authority!

So there you have it!  A great new kayak design from Lifetime!  And don’t worry, it won’t be the last!

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

On the Drive Home
After writing my last post about my first encounter with a Lifetime Basketball System, I started thinking about how many other people probably had a similar experience as mine. In fact, on my drive home from work last week, I decided to count how many basketball systems there were, and how many of them were from Lifetime. In my short 10 miles from work to home, I counted 60 basketball hoops along my path, and out of those, close to 80% of them were made by Lifetime! So Im guessing that many have had an experience similar to mine. If you do, Id love to hear about it! In fact, while looking for the Jordan vs. Bird commercial a couple of weeks ago, I ran across video of some guys creating some pretty cool memories of their own on a Lifetime System. Check them out here: Backyard Basketball
Lifetime's Annual Service Project 2010- Park Beautification
This pastSaturday, October 9,Lifetime Products employeesmet at Clearfield Citys Steed Park for Lifetimes 5th Annual Local Community Service Project.What a sight! More than800 employees were busy laying sod, trimming trees, leveling baseball diamonds, picking up trash, and much more, to beautify and improve the 23-acre Steed Park for local residents. It was a great experience working togetheroutside of our normal everyday jobs to do something to give back and help improve our local community. It was also a true team effort. Everyone pitched in to help in some way or another... even Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson was busytrimming trees by the pond. Me? I rolled up my sleeves to help stain the pavilion whichwas a little messy, but fun nonetheless. Clearfield Parks and Recreation coordinated much of the work, and employe...
Lifetime Garden Beds Are BPA Free
Some of you have asked if the plastic panels on the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed contain BPA (Bishphenol_A). Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our healthespecially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers. The good news is thatLifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost coverDO NOT contain BPA. They are a Green Product. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic...
