Not too big and not too small. In other words, just right.
Sometimes, the boat is too big. Sometimes, the boat is too small. And then there are times when the boat is just right. The Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 Kayak hits the size sweet spot, striking perfectly in the middle. All but the extremes on either end of the people-proportion spectrum fit easily in this kayak. No ability qualifiers exist: pro paddlers, middling kayakers, and neophyte non-swimmers will all enjoy outings in this sleek, stable boat. Luxury seating and a removable console give paddlers of all prowess a cushioned ride and the option of bringing a beverage on board.
As the middle sibling in the Pungo series of recreational boats, the 120 sports the same profile as the 100 and 140, but with an inch difference across the middle. A modified V runs down the center of the hull, and hard chines lead to soft, bellowed sides through the middle. Since the boat tapers at the ends, the V acts as a keel for true tracking with every stroke. With a long waterline and touring-inspired design, the Pungo helps new 'yakkers feel stable the instant their butts hit the Phase 3 AirPro sea and allows seasoned river rats the opportunity to get some speed within a few strong strokes.
The Phase 3 AirPro buttresses your back without restricting your stroking ability, and webbed straps let you turn this supportive seat into an on-water recliner. The SlideLock foot brace system puts adjustment options at you fingertips, in case you're sharing the boat with a stumpy-legged friend. The Kayak Konsole keeps your travel mug of coffee upright, sports a little bulkhead for hiding snacks, and comes off when you want the extra bow space for Fido. Canine companionship or not, the stern bulkhead offers a chunk of cargo room for slightly bigger items that require a slightly drier ride.
