The Hobie Rectangular Twist and Seal Hatch is the standard hatch on Hobie Pro Angler kayaks and can also be added to 2013 and newer model year Hobie Outback kayaks. The twist and seal allows for one hand operation and is a hinged lid that keeps the hatch with the kayak at all times.

Nice sturdy hatch fit my outback nicely, easy install, i actually cut the hole out with a razor knife. It does not come with the seal which is dumb, but you can use marine goop to seal it up.
The Hobie hatch looks and operates vey well. To add to the well built hatch, I used #10 ss bolts and ss flange nuts for increased strength and durability. Take a little time and do it right, you won't regret it. The rectangular drop-in bucket I added had to be lightly belt sanded on the bottom corners to fit my outback properly but when completed it had enough room for three tackle boxes or two boxes and numerous singular tools as well as my wallet and phone in the handy mesh pocket under the hatch lid.
