Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

For beginner to intermediate paddlers, the Perception Tribe 9.5 sit-on-top kayak's versatile 9 ft. 6 in. design inspires skills and confidence.

- REI

The sit-on-top Perception Tribe 9. 5 Kayak was designed for fun-loving paddlers of all ages who want to explore the waves, cruise winding rivers, or mess around the backyard pond. It has an open cockpit with a padded, foldable, and adjustable seat for back support and paddling power, a keel skid plate for extra durability, and scupper holes that easily drain water if you tip or a wave washes over your bow. Molded tank wells in the bow and stern are outfitted with bungees to secure a cooler, towel, dry clothes, and other gear, while the molded-in cupholder prevents your drink from going overboard in rough seas and keeps your hands free to paddle or ward off pesky rugrats. Perception included plenty of molded and anchored handles for easy carrying and car topping, and it gave the Tribe a stackable design that makes it easy to store your boats for next summer.
