Size and Weight

At 10’5” (317.5 cm) in length, and 34” (86.3 cm) wide, the Hobie Mirage Passport 10.5 is everything you want in a compact kayak without the usual Hobie price tag. Fully rigged with seat and all, the Mirage Passport 10.5 weighs in at only 75 lbs (34 kg), making it ideal for users who want to cartop or stow this kayak in a truck bed.

Capacity

The Mirage Passport 10.5 has many similarities to other, budget-minded kayaks that have hit the market in recent years. With a capacity of 325 lbs (147.4 kg) this kayak is not exactly ideal for long-distance trips.

While its small size might seem like the Mirage Passport 10.5 would be a poor choice for larger-sized users, this kayak does surprisingly well in the stability department.

Features

The Passport 10.5 has just about everything you might want in a compact, easy-to-use foot pedal kayak. Whether you’re planning to make this a fishing kayak or just a pleasure ride, the Passport 10.5 has got you covered.

Powered by the MirageDrive with Glide Technology and Kick-Up Fins, the Passport needs minimal effort to ride, even against the current in many waterways. This is mainly due to the Passport’s ST fins, which provide more than enough driving power to make long distances seem less difficult. The fins also kick up when they encounter an underwater obstacle, which gives you complete peace of mind and lets you paddle in shallow waters.

Part of the reason why Hobie’s fins are so effective is their square tip design, which offers an increased surface area while maintaining a one-foot mast length.

The Passport offers plenty of bow and stern space in the form of large wells that are equipped with bungee cords for securing gear items. The kayak also features an accessory tube in the bow area that’s made for easy installation of a sail or bimini cover.

Users will find a round, 8-inch sealed hatch that offers plenty of dry storage directly in front of the seat.

Anglers will appreciate the two gear mounting tracks on either side of the Passport, which are great for mounting rod holders, depth finders or camera gear.

The Passport’s mesh seat is surprisingly comfortable and can be adjusted to fit users who need more legroom. Two rear flush-mounted rod holders are also within easy reach for users to stow their poles and pedal to the next location.

Directly behind the seat are two cargo scuppers that are made for Hobie cart or livewell installation.

Many users appreciate the Passport’s stackable hull design, which makes transporting multiple kayaks simple and easy when you’re working with limited transportation space.

One of the most valuable features of the Passport is the twist-and-stow rudder system that lets users turn the kayak effortlessly with one hand. This kayak comes with an aluminum paddle to aid in maneuvering and paddling.

Performance

Users widely report that the Passport has surprising speed capability for a small, compact kayak. Anglers who prefer to stand up when fishing might find other kayak models more stable, but the Passport’s stability is better than most other compact designs. Maneuverability is excellent for a pedal-propelled kayak.

The Mirage Passport 10.5 is capable of traveling through weeds and shallows with little effort. Many users report that the kayak is one of the smoothest foot pedal models that makes long distances seem less daunting. Just like many of their other kayak models, Hobie has successfully created a pedal kayak that’s all about fun.
