I've prepared an in-depth video review of the Wilderness Systems TARPON 100 sit-on-top kayak. I bought this kayak as a birthday gift for my wife, but I love it so much I'm considering getting one for myself.
This 10 foot-long kayak weighs in at 55 lb. and has a load capacity of 325 lb. The fully adjustable seat makes this little boat very comfortable to paddle, and for a short boat it handles and tracks very well.
