When shopping for a kayak, many anglers tend to prioritize weight and portability although these are not the only important features that one should look out for. If you are an angler interested in a kayak, you should remember to look out for the amount of space the vessel offers, comfort when riding and its stability. If you do not get a vessel that guarantees stability and gives you adequate storage space, your kayak could end up being a source of inconvenience any time you go out fishing.
The Feelfree Moken 10 Lite kayak is a lightweight vessel that is relatively small but provides anglers with adequate storage space. The vessel is highly portable and does not cost a fortune to own.

Feelfree Moken 10 Lite Features
Some of the outstanding features of the Feelfree Moken 10 lite are:
It has adequate storage space
Although the Moken 10 Lite is a small model kayak, it will provide any angler with space enough to pack his or her tackle and gear conveniently. It has an oval-shaped hatch at its bow with its center console located directly in front of its seat for convenience. It has a rear cargo deck on its stern and a bungee strap to help secure your gear when fishing.
The vessel has Uni-track rails on both sides of its cockpit with a pocket on each seat for more storage space. It also comes with two flush-mount rod holders located just behind the cockpit for accessibility.
Feelfree Moken 10 lite measures 31 inches wide, a dimension that makes it less stable as compared to its big brother the Moken 10 Standard. Although Moken 10 Lite is relatively narrower compared to the Moken 10 standard, it will provide you with adequate stability that will enable you to fish conveniently. You should not use this vessel for rough surfing, however, because its stability can be compromised. It is also not high enough to enable you to stand. That notwithstanding, Moken 10 Lite will still allow you to paddle confidently if you are fishing in smooth waters. As a result, you should not be worried about taking a spill when casting or retrieving.
The Maneuverability of the Feelfree Moken 10 Lite
When riding this vessel, you will realize that it is nimble just like other crafts of the same size. It will not offer you proper tracking but you can expect the included keel to keep it on the track and ensure that it does not wander too far away from the course. Moken 10 Lite can maneuver around obstacles easily and can make a turn in a squeezed space. Feelfree Moken 10 Lite has a weight of 55 pounds, and you can expect it to live to its name. [Colored yellow] It has Feelfree’s wheels that will ensure you are able to load it into your vehicle and get it into the water with little difficulties.
Since Moken 10 Lite is only 10.5 feet long and 31 inches wide, you can expect that its cockpit will be squeezed. As a result, it is only ideal for the average anglers. If you are a tall and large angler, you could opt for Moken 10 standard for more comfort. The vessel is spacious and provides plenty of space for an average angler who has an average height and weight. To enhance the comfort of anglers, Moken 10 Lite provides users with different footwells.
The feetwells allow you to assume different leg-positions to ensure that you are comfortable when fishing or paddling.
The seat installed in the vessel is a King Fisher Seat that has adequate pads and is highly adjustable to allow for easy customization. You will find it easy to access all the storage compartments available on the vessel except for the rear cargo deck, which you will have to move from your seat to access.
Design and Material
Just like other vessels from Feelfree, Moken 10 Lite is made of durable rugged polyethylene. The material used to build the vessel enhances its durability, implying that the Moken 10 Lite can withstand all the wear and tear that accompanies daily fishing activities. The material is also waterproof and lightweight to ensure that it only adds the necessary weight to the vessel. The kayak is 10 feet and 4 inches long and 31 inches wide, thus making it a small craft that allows you to keep onboard up to 353 pounds. The vessel is available in more than 10 color combinations, which makes it easier for buyers to choose the color that works best for them conveniently.
