Product Description and Specs

The Wilderness Systems Kayak Konsole has become an immediate classic. New hinged hatch with built in cam levers creates a dry seal. Simply flick the recessed levers and the hatch pivots open on a stout hinge, providing easy unhindered access to contents. The lid stays attached to the Konsole, no needing one hand for the hatch cover and the other for everything else. To close, flip hatch lid down and flick the cams to closed position. Universal cup holders accommodate everything from travel mugs to 32 oz bottles. Recessed mounting surfaces for rod holder mounts and a mesh pocket conclude the generous list of features. Will fit most recreational kayak cockpits and secures via bungee cord under the rim coaming.

• Easily attaches to cockpit rim for convenient storage
• Hinged hatch with built in cam levers creates a dry seal
• Universal cup holders accommodate everything from travel mugs to 32 oz bottles
• Hinged lid stays attached to the Konsole

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.

I love this product. I love it so much that I bought another one after I accidentally snapped off the dry hatch when I flipped my kayak over to clean it. Then, within weeks, I had done the same thing to the new one. The hatch is secured with metal L-shaped pins that connect the lid to the body of the plastic console. I had the lid closed the second time, but not locked. The plastic gives way upon impact. duh I have been told I cannot purchase just the replacement hatch, so I now have two perfectly good consoles that have no dry hatches. Not quite the same enjoyment. Much sadness. I am apparently too dumb to own this product.

Perfect accessory for our Wilderness Systems Pungo 120. We absolutely love these! The little mesh pouch is perfect for keeping a waterproof smartphone handy for those photo ops on the water. Highly recommend!

The hatch is touted as one of the great features on the Pungo. After using it for a couple of months, I would say it has some drawbacks. First the good - it acts as a good splash guard, it does give you some places to put things and the little net bag is handy. Now the bad - the cupholders are virtually useless for anything larger than a to-go cup of coffee. They are not deep enough to support a small thermos. The result is that the thermos falls off or gets in the way when paddling. The dry hatch is only dry in the title. Certainly don't trust anything to stay dry in it - it won't. Ours was also very hard to open or close to the point of not being able to open or close. I never use the two place to put things in because they are of an awkward size and of course, everything will get wet. Overall, a great idea but I'm surprised it isn't more useful. I use it mostly as a splash guard and a granola bar holder.

Q: Will this fit a Jackson Tupelo 12 ft kayak?
A: Since we do not carry Jackson kayaks, we could day for sure. If my experience, this will not really fit any kayak outside of the Wilderness Brand.
