Oversized Shipping Info


The Jackson Zen bridges the gap between river runner and creek boat, while offering a new tier in speed and performance. Higher sidewalls improve stability, while added volume and bow rocker keep you higher on the the surface! The Zen retains its maneuverability but now allows you to fly up and over rocks, holes and waves better than ever. If you're looking for a forgiving, easy to roll all around kayak while getting started or wanting something that surfs as well as it creeks, the Zen is for you.

    Best creek boat/river runner I've ever sat in! It's wicked fast, nimble, boofs like a dream, super light, dry, classic Jackson comfy and simple outfitting, easy to pack for multi days......can't say enough good things about this boat! I was a bit hesitant to go with Jackson as they haven't been the most durable in the past but they seem to have made some improvements in this area such as eliminating the outfitting welds under the seat and ditching the cross-link plastic, but time will tell. I am 5'7" and 150lbs. The old Zen 75 felt a little large for me but the new Zen Med feels perfect, more responsive, maneuverable and boofable in creeks and easier to throw around in big water. As for Western Canoe and Kayak, awesome to deal with! Super friendly, helpful and professional and got my boat to me in Northern BC in a couple days with very reasonable shipping fees. Great boat, great people at WCK....Stoked!
