    The name of the game is fun.

    The all-terrain vehicle of the waterworld, the ocean-loving, river-adoring, sit-on-top Perception Tribe 11.5 Kayak loves variety as much as you do. It's beginner-friendly, so everyone can get a taste of the action, with a wide, stable hull and slightly rockered bow that handles waves and maneuvers easily on flats. It sports a foldable, adjustable, and padded seat that adds an extra dose of comfort and paddling power. As the middle child of the Tribe family, the 11.5 is sleek and fast enough to make longer journeys but plenty nimble to handle tight spots, and has a skid plate for durability and auto-draining scupper holes to keep you from swamping.

    The dual bow and stern tank wells come equipped with bungees to strap your gear down when you're cruising down the river or crossing the foggy bay, and the molded-in cup-holder keeps your drink from going overboard when the seas start to get foamy. A combination of molded and attached carry handles make moving and car-loading easy as pie, while the Tribe's stackable designs mean you can easily keep your boats out of the way until it's time for the next adventure.

    Great boat!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my first sit in kayak and I have been loving it. I have used it on lakes for exploring, swimming, and getting to cliff jumping spots. There is plenty of storage space on the stern and bow for dry bags, coolers, and your PFD. It tracks straight really well and is sturdy - you can get in and out of it pretty easily to swim without tipping it. My only complaint is it is a little long for storing in my apartment and getting up the stairs and around corners. If I had a better place to store it I would give it 5 stars.

    Versatile is how to describe this boat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Having failed to learn to roll my sit in kayak I began my search for a sit on top. I chose the 11.5 Tribe because of it's value and versatility. I use this boat on class I & II whitewater on the Colorado River and on the Green River. I also paddle it on lakes and reservoirs.
    This boat is very stable and it rides nice with my weight (210#), a little cooler on the stern and a small dry bag on the bow. This boat likes to go straight, I wouldn't try technical whitewater with this boat but for those 'hey diddle diddle, right down the middle' sort of runs this boat does great.
    I also purchased some rubber plugs at our local hardware store that fit the drain holes just right. I did this so I can paddle on the smooth sections of river (or on lakes) in the colder months. Water doesn't really get in under my butt in the first place but the plugs give me a really dry ride.
