The Loon 138 by Old Town is a recreational kayak measuring 13 feet 8 inches long that built for stability and ease of use. Old Town also offers 12-foot and 10-foot-long versions of their Loon model kayaks.

Features

The Loon 138 comes standard with adjustable foot braces, carrying handles, deck bungees and a paddle holder. It also features its trademarked Ergonomic Extrasport XtraComfort Seat, and Rear Space Hatch, for storage. Kayak colors include green, red, yellow, sunrise and cloud.

Use

The Old Town Loon 138 is a versatile kayak. The length, stability and reasonable tracking allow this kayak to be paddled in the ocean for casual use, while the large cockpit makes it suitable for overnight trips on calm rivers or fishing on a lake.

Cost

The Old Town Loon 138 has been around for many years and versions.You can find a used Loon kayak for a couple hundred dollars, though it may have fewer features than the current model. A new Loon 138, as of August 2010, has a suggested retail price of $699.
