Wilderness Systems Kayak Konsole with Dry Hatch: This unit is really
great! Very handy for quick gear item access and keeps the "splash"
off in cold wx 'yaking. It fit my Pungo 120 perfectly. For my wife's
Pungo 100, the hatch covers part of the cockpit gunwale padding, so I
radiused the panel corners a little bit to keep it from wearing the
pads. Easy to trim...file, utility knife, etc.
The kayak console was exactly what I wanted and it came as expected
with no problems or difficulties or surprises.
I saw this on a kayak paddle and thought instantly, this would be so
cool. I bought two that afternoon. Its a great idea but the design has
some flaws. First, I had to cut the front lip off mine entirely because it
dug into my shins. The cup holders are rather shallow so they don't
hold a waterbottle all that well. I put a foam "cozy" on the bottle and
that helped. I love the dry hatch and if nothing else this is a reason to
buy. The other two areas of the Konsole are odd shaped and not really
sure what you'd put there. If you were a fisherman maybe lures but
for a recreational kayaker they are incidental. The little mesh bag
holds power bars just fine. My wife likes hers; I could go either way.
We have two Pungo 120 ULs and these consoles fit them perfectly. I
was able to drill the small holes I needed to RAM mount my Garmin
GPSMAP 64s in one of the recessed mounting surfaces with no
problems. The cup holders are a bit shallow and water bottles tend
to tip over. I found that if I put a koozie on my bottles they stay in
place. Very happy with this purchase.
I love this! I bought them for my two Prodigy 10s and it fits perfectly
and adds just the right amount of storage space. This site has the
best price as well.
Great product. Dry hatch and other places to put gear really helps
on longer kayak trips. Stays securely in place and remains on
kayak, even during wet exit practices.
Solid construction - fits a Pungo 120 very well. The water-proof
hatch is very difficult to close and open; I tried a bit of grease to
ease the closure/opening - did not make much of a difference. If
the hatch loosens-up during use, I would rate a five. If not, a solid
four and I will likely just leave the O-ring out.
Fits perfect. Even was able to bolt it on with the side screw holes for
that perfect factory added look. Great seal regarding the hatch as well.
Great product but will not fit old
town angler deluxe kayak! Missed
the deadline to return :(
I got this as an early christmas
present for my self. I installed
it onto a Field and Stream
Eaglerun sit in kayak. I had to
cut the OE cup holder area
(which was useless) and i used
a small electric handsaw and
files to smooth out edges. I
tried it out this weekend and I
am very happy with it. I was
able to keep my drinks right in
front of me with out having it
roll aroung the inside of my
kayak. The little baf up front
was perfect for my favorite
fishing plastics. I added a
Hobie mount, extention, and
rod holder to the right
compartment, I had it moutned
behind me but it is much better
now mounted in front. I also
attached my fishfinder screen
to the left compartment. So far
I have outfitted my kayak with
accesories all bought at his
site. I have been really happy
with all products and the prices
are the best.
Had to make it fit with a bit of
cutting with a dremel tool.

We use this on our Wilderness
Systems Pungo 100. It works
great. Water tight and extra
