Old Town Materials

Old Town has been a pioneer in innovative materials for canoes and kayaks that provide rigidity and resiliency, lightweight and long life, attractive looks and affordable prices.

Old Town's rotomolded kayaks and canoes use a high grade material that is a compounded blend of polyethylene found in both our single layer and three layer polyethylene processes. This blend is designed to maximize the distribution of polymer in the kayak tools which help us to build lighter boats and provides the stiffness needed to ensure your boat will hold up to the impacts that may be encountered during your adventure.
