Hop into Perception's women's-specific, trim and toned Tribute.
The Tribute 12.0 Kayak from Perception finally brings you the paddling performance you want for touring with a women's-specific touch. The rotomolded plastic is durable enough that you can drag your boat up onto the beach for a night of camping under the stars, or just pull over to eat your afternoon snack. If you don't want to stop, the Zone DLX seat ensures that your posterior and back stay comfortable over long days spent int he saddle. SlideLock adjustable foot braces make it easy to get the desired fit, and they also make it easy to switch between paddlers for an easy afternoon at the lake with friends. A stern hatch with a watertight cover lets you store the gear you need for a moderate tour or easy day trips.

- Q & A
Great kayak for smaller people!
This kayak is lighter than most 12' kayaks, and has a smaller cockpit than a lot of sit-ins, which makes it a great choice for smaller people. I'm a 44 year old woman, 5'3", 140 lbs, and it was relatively easy to carry and transport. I took it out for the first time this weekend , and it tracked well, did great in calm water as well as in some small waves, and was still nimble enough to maneuver around while exploring shallow coves. Very happy with my purchase. A big thank you to my "personal gearhead" Jason Setser, who followed up with me and made sure I was 100% satisfied after delivery. I will definitely be purchasing from backcountry again.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This was my first boat I've owned and I love it. It's light enough for me to carry and it's still durable. The sides by your thighs are padded and the seat is very comfortable. I've taken it on an adventure to the boundary waters in Canada and it glided fantastically on the waters.
Can a rudder be put on a Perception Tribute 12 Kayak? I understand it does not come with one.
