Size and Weight

The Loon 106 is 10’6” (320 cm) long and 31” (78.7cm) wide. The kayak has a deck height of 17.5” (44.5 cm). The cockpit measures 56” x 23” (142.2cm x 58.4cm) without the work deck installed. The kayak weighs 53 pounds, so it can easily be shouldered to carry or loaded on a vehicle by an adult of average size and strength. Bow and stern handles allow for an easier way to carry or drag your boat.

Capacity

At 325 lbs (147.4 kg), Old Town Loon 106’s capacity is a bit restrictive, but it should still be sufficient for most smaller to medium-sized paddlers. Just be aware of the total weight when packing your gear for the day.

Features

The Old Town Loon 106 is built for comfort and offers all the features you need for a day on the water.

On the bow, there is a bungee-based carrying handle. We prefer molded handles because they are sturdy, snag-free, and can be used as additional attachment points during transportation.

Next, you have deck bungees for storing a day pack, a rain jacket, or any other items you might need on the water.

One of the more advanced features of the Loon 106 is its detachable workdeck. It includes a dry storage box with a USB cord and charging port. It also has two catch-all trays and a water bottle holder. The workdeck is removable if you’d like more leg room.

Beside the workdeck you have a paddle clip for easy storage of your paddle. Thigh pads are directly behind the workdeck on the sides of the cockpit to rest your knees.

The lip around the cockpit allows the option for a spray skirt if needed.

Old Town’s Active Comfort System 2.0 (ACS2) is what truly sets this kayak apart. The seat comes with breathable padding that offers next-level comfort while the seat bottom and back are adjustable. There is even adjustable lumbar support.

Moving toward the stern, you have more deck bungees for storage and another, larger dry storage hatch with a click-seal latch.

Finally, another handle and bungee system are at the far tip for transportation.

Performance

It would be hard to beat the Old Town Loon 106 for overall performance.

This kayak is stable even in choppy waters, easy to enter and exit, and tracks like a dream.

While it isn’t a speed demon, you’ll move through the water plenty fast and the boat handles well. You’ll be able to stand up if you have good balance, but we wouldn’t recommend fishing or making any sudden movements while standing.
