Here's what other sites are saying:

Perception built their Carolina 12. 0 Kayak with a seat comfortable enough for full days in the saddle and a hull design that glides across glassy lakes and feels stable on coastal explorations. The adjustable seat and knee pads with inner or outer brace options are a relief from hard-plastic back and butt torture, and the adjustable foot pads give your feet something to brace against while you paddle. Stash your lunch in the bow or stern hatch, and slide your waterproof map and sunscreen under the front bungees for quick access. This 12 footer has plenty of room for a weekend get away and is fitted with bow and stern hatches to keep your camping gear dry.
