If you are looking for something compact, then the FK285 is perfect for you. To begin with, the sit-on-top kayak has a hull length of 9 feet 2 inches and a width of 32 inches while only weighing 44 pounds. This narrowness and the lightweight of the vessel might concern some fishermen, but according to BKC, this makes the kayak an ideal weight-to-length ratio to provide great balance and stability.
Storage options seem endless on this compact kayak. Starting with a pair of waterproof hatches with dry bag inserts, all the way to big cargo spaces with bungee tie-down straps. The weight capacity is decent at 350 lbs.
There are three-rod holders featured in this kayak, one being a 360-degree articulating rod holder that is easily accessible. The two flush-mount rods are positioned in the rear, while the articulating rod holder is on the front.
Due to its size, you might think that there isn’t plenty of leg space, making the kayak uncomfortable. But this is not the case with the FK285 model due to its adjustable seat.
On the side of the hull, there are paddle rests that secure your paddles from wandering in the water freely.
There are also two handles on each side of the hull, so getting in or out of the kayak or just turning it over when tipped over is relatively easy.
The BKC FK285 is also covered with a 5-year hull warranty and one year for included parts.
Overall, the BKC FK285 is made to be compact and portable. If you are planning to spend more than a few hours in your kayak, it might be better to consider something with more space. But if you are a casual angler or take your kayak overland on daily trips, the FK285 is truly worth considering.
