Rated 4 out of 5 by veryactivegeezer Great addition
The console is extremely useful for easy, secure and dry access to all sorts of goodies - phone, food drinks, radio, fishing gear, etc. Would give it a 5 except for sharp lower edges that legs hit entering and exiting boat - need some rubber on those (which I will apply), and getting in and out of boat with the console in place is a bit of a challenge. I can't imagine having to re-enter if I were to dump the boat. It's a handy item, but has its shortcomings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jwmuff Doesn't fit most
Make sure you check the reviews to get the measurements. Although they don't list the dimensions on the listing (I don't know why they wouldn't) make sure to check before ordering. It would not fit either of our kayaks (old town tour 10 and pelican) so it doesn't fit most. It would be an awesome console if it fit. It's going back.

Sturdy. Fit into our 12 ft Manatee kayak easily. Love the cup holders, mesh bag & piece of mind with the waterproof storage cubby...puts things at your fingertips. Cubby is hard to open, so sometimes lifts up entire console...think I need to tighten/secure console better onto kayak. Does shorten leg room so a little trickier getting in, but still comfortable for me 5'8" & my husband 5'11"

I love this Kayak Console! It's a great addition to my kayak. It fits perfectly and is easy to put on. It has drink holders and a dry compartment. Another great item sold by L.L. Bean!!

I recently bought a Field and Stream 12' fishing kayak. While scouring the kayaking blogs looking for cool additions I came across a fellow enthusiast who had bought and permanently mounted one of these on his Kayak. I loved the look and usability of it. When it arrived I quickly discovered I had to modify my kayak for this to fit. Because of the cool storage bin in the console I had to cut out the cup holder section on my existing kayak. Not a big deal but certainly worthy of mentioning in case others do not realize this or that they may have to have some tools to do it. Once removed the new console snapped into place. I plan on leaving mine with the ability to remove it when needed. I am 6' tall and cannot get my legs into and out of the kayak without scraping them on this console so I like to sit, get comfortable and then snap this into place. It looks great, works great but does minimize how much space you have so if your used to having a duffel bag or tackle box between your legs with this installed It's not going to be easy. I love it though and I am primarily a paddler who only occasionally dabbles with fishing. Plus, if I need more room on any expedition I simply pop it off and leave it in the truck. Very easy..

Rated 2 out of 5 by DRivers Too big for small kayak
The console itself is great but it is too big for a small kayak cockpit. I tried to put it on the manatee and I couldn't get in the kayak with it on. Granted I'm 6 ft 1 in but consider your kayak size before you buy

This console was bought for my Manatee DLX100 - Fit great and stays in place (hint - you can undo the factory knot in the bungee and tighten it up if needed) I would think unless you are fairly short you will need to cut away the spots for your knees (as others have pointed out) - although I have been called "tall" - 6'-2". The dry well is great and works as advertised. Overall I cannot see not having this as an add-on to the manatee. One note is if you get the spray skirt from Harmony for the Manatee you cannot fit both the skirt and console on the kayak at the same time. I ended up in the S. Branch of the Dead and used the skirt - I just placed the console on the floor between my legs until we got to the lake.

Both my husband and I love the consoles we purchases to go along with our kayaks. They have proven quite handy in keeping needed item close at hand - like a water bottle, lures,snacks, etc. We havenot had any problems at all with scrapping our knees or knees when getting in or out. There is still plenty of room in the cockpit and the little dry storage has saved our keys a couple of times.
