Recent Recreational Kayak Reviews

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

Old Town Dirigo 120

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice boat for the price. I have had this boat for five years and really enjoy it for both river trips and for just bummin around on a lake. Great boat to fish from as it is very stable when casting. Tracks nicely but is also easy to maneuver. Comfortable to be in for several hours at a time. The only downside is because of its length it is a little heavy to put on top of an SUV by oneself.   Full review

Old Town Camden 120

rated 5 of 5 stars This kayak is very stable and cruises right along! I can't think of anything negative to say about it. I am thrilled to own an Old Town kayak. Quality is king, and Old Town is worthy. I tooled around the edge of a half frozen lake as my first test run, and the Camden performed extremely well. I love how easy it is to keep a steady pace once I reach my desired speed. It coasts for a long time when I stop paddling, which is pretty satisfying! Tons of storage, probably enough for a dome tent in the… Full review

Old Town Dirigo 106

rated 5 of 5 stars I love the storage hatches on this kayak. It is light enough for me to easily load on the top of my SUV. I have had my Dirigo for nine months and love it. My favorite part is the storage hatches which are easily accessible while on the water. This is a well made, durable kayak. I am 5'-7" and have plenty of leg room. This kayak is very stable on the water and is lightweight enough that it is easy for me to load it on my SUV without any assistance. I have used this kayak on rivers, ponds, and lakes. Full review

Old Town Vapor 10

rated 4 of 5 stars I purchased this kayak last season and spent a lot of time on the water. I am very pleased with the performance and comfort of this kayak. For the price this was a great option. I would recommend this kayak for pond and flat lake fishing. The Old Town Vapor 10 Angler is a great fishing kayak for flat water lakes and small ponds. It has a very comfortable seat which means more time on the water. It is lightweight and easy to transport to your favorite fishing hole. I have really enjoyed mine and… Full review
