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.

Lifetime Products Recognized Leader in Computer Technology, Too
Contrary to popular opinion,Lifetime doesn't have a magic machine that takes raw-materials in one side, and spits out award winning products on the other side. Instead, we have a talented team of people working in various locations across not only the United States of America, but across the globe, as well. Most of you probably know that Lifetime is the industry leader in residential basketball hoops and polyethylene folding tables and chairs. But, they are also a recognized industry leader in our corporate IT capabilities. In fact, because of our cutting-edge standardization practices, HP recently showcased Lifetime in an international case study to help teach other companies about the benefits of standardization and centralization. Pretty cool. Traditionally, multinational companies have large and unnecessarily redundant ...
After dinner, head out and go shopping! Black Friday!!!
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? My wife’s favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?). My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess. If you’re looking for a new basketball hoop, Sports Authority, Congratulations Karrie S! Children’s Furniture Giveaway Winner!!!

The Lifetime kids' furniture is hitting Costco stores this week! The Kids’ Table is Now the Cool Table
I can’t even tell you how excited I am about our new Kid’s Furniture! This is a project that the whole company has rallied around – even employees can’t wait to get their hands on these! The Lifetime Children’s Square Folding Table and Stacking Chairs are hitting Costco stores this week! They are absolutely perfect for homes, daycares, parties, etc. and would be great as your kids’ Thanksgiving Table this year. The table comes in our traditional almond color, and the cute stack chairs are available in blue, green, and almond. The great thing about our tables and chairs is that they clean up super easily. They can handle food spills, finger paints, and craft paints, coloring, etc. Another thing I love about these products is they are unique! At Lifetime, we are inventors, ...
