FAQ >> Kayalite™ Deck and Stern Light FAQ
How does the Kayalite compare with other commercially available stern lights?
The Kayalite KLT-1050 excels in performance for paddlesports activities such as:
•  recreational night paddling
•  paddling in fog or rain
•  paddling in brackish or saltwater
•  flyfishing / casting
•  maneuvering under a cover of tree branches
•  at sea on expedition
•  whitewater or severe conditions
While the Kayalite's primary purpose is to provide visibility in normal conditions, the Kayalite is capable of maintaining stability in a number of difficult or unanticipated situations.
