Kokanee Tandem: You've never seen a kayak like this before!

 Kokanee_on lake.jpgAt Lifetime, Commitment, Innovation, and Quality, is more than just a slogan, it is a way of doing business!   We are constantly working to take our kayaks to the next level, above and beyond what is already out there.  We take suggestions and advice from you, the people who use our kayaks, and incorporate that into our designs.  After a lot of hard work we’ve come up with a kayak that is like nothing you’ve ever seen!

I would like to introduce our brand new tandem kayak, the Kokanee!  It is 10'6" in length and can hold a combined weight of 425 lbs!  Sure, there are other tandem kayaks out there, but nothing as innovative and paddler friendly as our Kokanee.  We racked our brains to come up with new improvements.  We wanted to do something that wasn’t out there already.  Something that made kayaking that much more convenient and that much more fun!

There are several design factors and features that make this kayak a step above the rest.  The Kokanee has a unique fish-form bottom that is extremely stable – and we mean extremely!  You won’t have to trade stability for tracking with the Kokanee! It tracks incredibly well due to the stylish and effective tracking channels and front keel line.  This keeps you going in a straight line without having to worry about tipping over, falling out, or doing kayak donuts.  This kayak has a spectacular design, but the most exciting part about it is found in its features.

Here are a few of our engineers taking our proto-type for a test run. They sat on the edge with all their weight and the Kokanee didn't even think about turning over! Tandem.jpg


The Kokanee has several features you can’t get anywhere else.  This is the first kayak to have a Quick Release Removable Seat System.  Our new seat backs can be removed or switched to different seat positions quickly and easily.  Want to paddle tandem?  Put the two seat backs in the first and third position.  If you want to have a relaxing solo paddle, release the seat back and snap it into the center position.  You can even completely remove all the seat backs making it more convenient for storage or transportation.  In addition to this amazing, on-of-a-kind seat system, there are also two hatches, a storage area with shock cord straps, water bottle holders, paddle ledges, a front toggle handle and a rear molded in grip handle.

The Kokanee has all the features of a standard tandem with so much more. This kayak really is a step above the other tandems.  It is convenient, feature filled and affordable.  There has never been a better way to get the family and the kids outside for an adventure!  The best part is that you get all this for only $399.00, WHOA!  Head over to your local Sports Authority to pick up the next big thing in the kayak world, the Kokanee!!

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.

Table Clips for Lifetime Tables - Two Packs for the Price of One!
Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks. It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them! Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy. Good thing I'm not superstitious. :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting. Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?! And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder to find clips that fit properly. But...
Win Dad a Shed for Father's Day!
This giveaway has ended. Wondering what to get dear old Dad for Father's Day? (Yes, in case you haven't glanced at a calendar recently, Father's Day is just 11 days away June 19.) Last year, I wrote a blog post with some unique Lifetime product ideas to buy for Dad. (Which, I might add, is still a very useful list to read for ideas.) But, this year, I figured rather than just giving you ideas for Dad, why not actually give you a gift for Dad? And, if we're going to give away a gift Dad's are sure to love, we might as well make it one of our most popular items on every Dad's lista shed! That's right, this month, one lucky winner will win a Lifetime 7'x7' shed to give to Dad. Umm, can you say ultimate Dad's Day Gift?! Seriously, what Dad doesn't dream of having his own extra space to use for extra storage area, a woodworking s...
New Lifetime Shed Has More Windows and Vertical Siding
We have been busy over the past year developing a new shed. The new Lifetime 8'x 10' shed capitalizes on the experience we have gained from our previous sheds and brings some great new features. If you are familiar with our sheds, you will notice the overall look of this new shed is different. One of the most noticeable differences is the shed walls now have a vertical siding look. Next difference? Windows! We do extensive market research with customers and you told us you like windows. So, we listened to your feedback and added even more windows by putting some in our newly designed doors. Windows allow light into the shed and give it a nice look. The operable window in the sidewall allows airflow so if you are working in the shed you can stay cool. Another difference in this new shed is the roof pitch is higher. This giv...
