Review | 2015 Fatyak Kaddy Storage Pod
The ever-helpful and customer-focused team at Fatyak contacted us to see whether we would like to try out their brand new Kaddy storage pod for their brilliant Kaafu Kayak.
We've been waiting for some time for the inclement British weather to favour a few hours spent out at sea to try it first-hand and on the one day we seem to have had the perfect conditions - blue sky, calm ocean and a warming ray of sunshine - we had a prior appointment. The next day: rain, wind and a bleak grey sky looming overhead. Fortunately, there was an opportunity to take some photos the day before!
So, our review takes place on dry land with the hope for better weather conditions - and a revised review to follow. As we approach the middle of May Summer is, surely, on the horizon.
We requested a black Kaddy, to compliment the vibrant orange of our Kaafu, but a wide range of colours are available to match your kayak; or contrast with it.
Our initial impression was how light the Kaddy is and weighing in at 2kg, it is easy to lift in to the back of a vehicle, with your other kayaking equipment. Alternatively, it could be pre-installed on the Kaafu before the kayak is roof or trailer mounted. Whichever method you chose, its light weight, coupled with balanced carry-handles, make it extremely easy to manoeuvre.
