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.

Slam Dunk in Your Pool
I sure hope you had a fun fourth of July! We had a great weekend, but we didnt do anything special or festive other than watch fireworks. Kind of sad... especially since our tradition, when we lived in Arizona, was to host a pool party and BBQ at our house every Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day. Wed invite our four closet friends and spend the day playing 3-on-3 volleyball and then the guys would throw down a serious game of hoops with our Lifetime Poolside basketball/volleyball system. Lets get something straight. Im not talking about a leisurely game where you splash around in the pool and daintily tap the ball over the net or into the hoop for fear of knocking down the flimsy goal. Im talking about a game of volleyball where you actually have to jump up to spike the ball over the net, instead of simply lifting your ...
Lifetime Acquires Kayak Company
We've been pretty busy at Lifetime this week and can finally tell you what all the commotion is about. Lifetime is expanding into another new sporting goods industrywater sports! Fun, huh? Just this week, Lifetime acquired the assets of San Bernardino, CA-based Dragonfly Innovation, Corp. and its kayak products. It's a move that just makes good sense for Lifetime. Kayaks you say? Yep, that's right. It's a great way to complement our other sporting goods lineup, which already includes basketball systems, soccer goals, and a tetherball set. And, the kayaks work well with our plastics manufacturing expertise, since they are a blow-molded product. Lifetime will manufacture the blow-molded kayaks in its Utah facility, which means the creation of more manufacturing jobs! Plus, with Lifetime manufacturing kayaks, it's good news fo...

Happy Manufacturing Day! Manufacturing Day 2014
Happy Manufacturing Day! You might be wondering, why are we so excited to celebrate Manufacturing Day? Because that’s what we do! For over 25 years, we’ve worked to turn raw steel coils and plastic pellets into products each of us can use everyday! I’ve been a supporter of Lifetime for years. Long before I ever worked here. My basketball hoop growing up was a Lifetime hoop. My parents always pulled out their Lifetime tables and chairs when we had a get together. That’s what we do at Lifetime. We make stuff for you to use every day! We are proud and passionate about manufacturing awesome products. Manufacturing is such an important part of American society. It is a source of millions of jobs and the products we all use every day. Today has ...
This chair is 100% made in the USA by our own Utah employees. Our Latest Innovation
Every Lifetime product has its niche and purpose. Every market niche has a need.
