Emotions seek to keep their products simple and hassle-free. The Renegade XT Fishing Kayak is one of the quality kayaks that the company produces.
Dimensions and Stats
The key stats for the Emotion Renegade XT Fishing Kayak are listed below:
Length: 10 ft
Width: 3 ft/ 36 inches
Weight: 49 lbs
Capacity: 275 lbs
This simple, no-frills sit-on-top kayak is an excellent choice for the budget-conscience angler who just want to have something simple that gets them to new fishing spots.
With a shorter length of 10 ft, this kayak is extremely zippy in the waters and highly maneuverable. This makes it an excellent choice for rivers with more obstacles in the way. At 49lbs, this kayak is very light and can be easily transported by a single person and secured to the roof of a car.
The kayak comes with molded-in footwells for added comfort and control. The kayak also provides many molded-in areas for your paddles and fishing rods.
While being a no-frills kayak, it boasts of a huge storage area at the stern of the kayak and secured with a cargo net. There’s also a storage hatch between the kayaker’s legs that is easily accessible for additional storage beneath the deck.
In terms of comfort, while it’s not as luxurious as the Hobie Pro Angler 14 (insert link), the low backrest of this kayak provides reasonable comfort. You can remove the backrests if you decide to.

What we don’t like about the Emotion Renegade XT Fishing Kayak
- Lack of ability to add much accessories for the kayaker
- While easy to maneuver, the length of the kayak makes it difficult to track.
- Difficult to maneuver in waters with tight spaces
- If your items move within the dry well, it can be difficult to retrieve while on the water.
