Perception Impulse 10

rated 4 of 5 stars Overall great kayak for the beginner to the more experienced! Bought this kayak for my 8-year-old son. He absolutely loves the kayak, tracks great, lightweight, which makes for a very user friendly kayak. The seat is very comfortable for all day comfort on the water. I have a 12' Dirigo and I also have no negative comments about the Impulse. Full review

Elie Sound 120 XE

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought this kayak about 4 years ago and have used it over 100 times on lakes and rivers. The seat is comfortable enough sit in for full days in a row and it is great to paddle. I have had two quality issues: The paddle strap plastic holders broke off and one of the foot rails leaks. It has great toughness and is extremely stable. This was my first kayak and I still use it as my main kayak to this day. It is extremely comfortable to paddle and has enough room to stash supplies for a 3-day adventure… Full review

Elie Sound 120 XE

rated 5 of 5 stars Good looking boat. Paddles well. Tracks straight. Great seating. Great boat for lakes and slow moving rivers. Paddles easily and tracks well. Easy to get in and out of even for a 6'4" 200 lb person. Ergo flex seating is fantastic. Boat is very well rigged. Great bang for the buck. Full review

Old Town Dirigo 106

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great rec kayak for lakes and slow rivers, capable of light overnight trips. Have had this kayak almost three years. I've dragged it, banged it, shot over ice and hit bottom more than a few times. Aside from a few scratches, the hull is perfectly intact.  It's easy to get in and out of, has a very comfortable and well adjustable seat, a fairly big water-tight hatch on the back (enough for a tent and sleeping gear), a little water-tight hatch on the dash for keys or a cellphone (I use this hatch… Full review

Wilderness Systems Pungo 120

rated 5 of 5 stars Great kayak, stable. This was the first kayak I ever used, and it is a great beginner all around boat. Handles a little bit of white water, goes great on the lake, hard to tip, and easy to get in and out of. Full review

Wilderness Systems Pungo 100

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing kayak for a smaller person, tracks good, turns nice and very stable! I really like that I can brace my legs in this one if I'm hitting some rough water. I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. Someone bigger might find it a little tight. Full review

Perception Prodigy 13.5

rated 5 of 5 stars A most excellent kayak for flat and mostly calm waters (rivers, lakes, and bays). Very stable with plenty of room for a companion, whether a larger dog or most tweens and younger. Excels at kayak camping. Don't be fooled by the Cons, this is an awesome kayak if you are serious about bringing your buddy with you, kayak camping, or both.  It also works just fine for a short solo paddle as well, although so do plenty of other kayaks. Marketing. I fault copy/paste marketing folks for having bad info… Full review

Old Town Camden 120

rated 5 of 5 stars I have a couple of kayaks, and have always wanted an Old Town Camden. I was not disappointed. It is very stable, tracks very well, and is comfortable for my 6.3 height. Awesome kayak!!!! Full review

Old Town Dirigo 120

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this kayak. It has everything that I would ever want in a kayak and more. It is very stable and tracks fairly well , plus the seat is the most comfortable seat I have ever sat in, which helps for long trips. This kayak is the best kayak I have ever used. It is fantastic for long trips in lakes or rivers. It is also great for fishing because option is so stable and your back never gets sore from sitting because of the comfortable seat. It can handle 1-2 foot waves with ease. It also tracks… Full review
