The Hobie Mirage Outback has long been considered one of the best fishing platforms in the world of kayaks and the latest model adds more stability, utility, rear load carrying capacity and now comes with the new ‘kick-up’ version of the 180 MirageDrive Turbo for maximum performance and capability

Kayak fishing is the forte of the Outback, due largely to it’s beamy form factor that provides ample stability, load carrying capacity, roomy deck space and mounting utility. With the first major redesign of Hobie’s Outback in over a decade, Hobie have further advanced the sport of kayak fishing with the latest model. It’s always been one of SLH’s most popular fishing kayaks and the new model is no exception.

The Hobie Mirage Outback is perfectly suited for anglers that are looking for a comfortable and stable fishing kayak that has enough storage and mounting utility to accommodate any amount of gear. With an abundance of integrated mounting options there’s won’t be any need to get overly creative or busy with a power-drill to customize and dial in your kayak exactly the way you want it.

With one of the largest rear storage wells available in a fishing kayak, you won’t have any problems adding a livewell, cooler box or catch bag and you’ll have room to spare. It simply won’t matter how big your catch is – and trust us, you’ll be catching lots of fish – the Outback has you covered. Speaking of being covered, the medium size Lovig Universal kayak cover is perfect for protecting your Outback in both storage and transit.

The extra-wide standing deck offers an improved casting platform and convenient vantage point for sight fishing, allowing for superior vision from above. The revolutionary new retractable Guardian Transducer Shield provides multidimensional vision below and is perfect for side-scan fish finder units.

Hobie Outback Deck

Four molded-in rod holders, multiple deluxe H-Track mounts, and numerous high-capacity storage compartments ensure that all of your gear is neatly and securely organized and conveniently at the ready. Ride in comfort and style with the Vantage CT seat, which keeps you high and dry, providing extra width for unmatched room and comfort.

Powered by the MirageDrive 180 with Kick-Up Turbo Fins this fine-tuned angling vessel is highly versatile, fast, quiet and highly resilient to collisions with rocks and stumps (see the video at the bottom of page for more info). This is the most capable pedal drive Hobie have ever built.

Fitted with Hobie’s Kick-Up Rudder system with dual steering capabilities, combating drift and navigating tight water will be easier than ever. Integrated fitting hardware for Micro Power-Pole make installation a breeze, and this can also be utilized to fit a Bixpy Electric Motor

Hobie Outback new Rudder

The Outback is most comparable with the Pro Angler and Compass series of kayaks and sits right in the middle in terms of performance, comfort, stability and utility. It’s noticeably lighter than a Pro Angler and offers a higher degree of stability than a Compass. So if you find yourself torn between either of those models, the Outback is probably the obvious choice.
