    Comments about PERCEPTION SPORT Sound 10.5 Kayak, 2014:

    I'm a beginner kayaker and have been looking for a few years for a good one. To be honest, I began at a well-known retailer that has a trusted name, but not a great selection. I almost bought one of their kayaks just so I would have one, even though the one I sat in was uncomfortable and was that horrible overused sunburst color.

    My bf suggested we take a look at EMS because they cater to active outdoorsy people. I thought I was going to get a similar, but cheaper, version of the kayak I was previously looking at. I was totally wrong. I walked in and saw this beautiful green camo 10.5 Perception Sport Sound kayak and fell in love, truly. I asked the associate to take it down so I could sit in it. Right off the bat I knew it was better than the other one because it was insanely comfortable and, bonus, it was on sale. The kayak and all the accessories (PFD and oar) were all 20% off.

    I've taken it on three 3-hour outings and the best part is that there is ample leg room so I can fit my 70lb pittie with me. For reference I am 5'8 about 135lbs. Thankfully, it's incredibly stable because my pup hates water and moves around a lot to get comfortable. I never once tipped. The kayak is so great in fact, that my bf went back the next day to get the same one for himself. He said this kayak is better than his $1000 open water kayak. He is 6'3, 250lbs, and is able to fit our 80lb pit in with him. My kayak even withheld the 80lb pit trying to crawl into the kayak with me, and did not tip.

    The kayak weighs about 46lbs, which is relatively easy to lift, depending on your strength level. The only downside is there is no dry storage. The rear of the kayak does have a few tie-downs which could be used to strap in a pack for a camping trip. Overall, this was a great purchase (I got it as a birthday gift) and I recommend it to a beginner or experienced kayaker.

      Comments about PERCEPTION SPORT Sound 10.5 Kayak, 2014:

      This is my first Kayak and I am 6'2" - 265 it handled me and all my gear very well.

      Rear tank well is Huge 24" wide tapering down to 19". Front dasher board was perfect for an Otter Box, as if designed for it. Storage behind seat had room for a medium sized back pack with items that can get wet, or in zip lock and trash bags.

      Foot pegs adjusted very easily, seat also adjustable. Also I put a dry bag under my knees, helped with overall comfort.

          I am 200 lbs 6 ft 65 years old this kayak is perfect for mostly flat water - stable, tracks well, average speed, console in front is excellent design - also has foam blocks inside front and back for extra flotation, option to fish is also nice - molded in handles also nice
