Moken, the Go-To Kayak For Everyone and More

It is often said there is no one kayak that does it all but if there was one that got close, it would be the Moken 12.5 V2 by Feelfree Kayaks. While primarily designed for fishing, the Moken 12.5 v2 has become a popular choice for those looking for a go-to-do-it-all kayak.

The reality is, most kayaks are either extremely stable, making them heavy and sluggish or performance based, making them unstable and somewhat uncomfortable. The Moken 12.5 v2 takes the best of both worlds with a well balanced design encompassing performance, stability, capacity, comfort and portability. The kayak also offers a myriad of features including standard angler accessories such as the flush mounted rod holders with secure leashes, the oversized and super comfortable EZ Rider set and the patented Wheel in the Keel - it is no wonder this kayak is one of our best selling models in the shop and online.

However there’s more than just the Moken 12.5 v2, there’s the Moken series. This family of kayaks features a total of five different models, each designed for a specific purpose and person in mind from the casual weekender with limited transportation and storage options to the one who has dialed in their fishing skills to participate in national kayak fishing tournaments.

We’ll cover each model, who it’s for and why, let’s start small then go big:

Moken 10 Lite V2 - At 10’ and less than 60lbs, Feelfree’s lightest Moken is designed for smaller paddlers who are looking for something that is not only easy to paddle on the water but also transport to and from the launch point on land. The Moken 10 Lite V2 is a popular go-to-kayak for kids and females who are looking for something with all the features of a larger kayak but without the baggage that comes with it.

Moken 10 V2 - While we went on and on about the Moken 12.5 at the beginning of this article, the Moken 10 is really what put the Moken series on the map. This kayak is perfect for those who want all the stability and capacity of its older brother but in a more compact package that is easier to store. It may only be 10’ but offers a whopping capacity of 440lbs so don’t be fooled by its size. It is still nimble on the water making it a great option for smaller paddlers but just as comfortable with full grown adults that are on the heavier side or wish to carry lots of fishing or adventure gear.
