    Item # 831491

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 112.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Rigid polyethylene hull withstands years of use without the need for maintenance
    • Touring-style hull offers excellent versatility; great for those seeking a boat for everything from ocean swells to local lakes
    • Peaked deck and upswept bow sheds water quickly and enhances speed, and progressive rocker enhances handling
    • Zone DLX seat features a foam-encased pocket that cradles the lower back
    • Seat back adjusts forward and backward, up and down, and leg lifters offer additional support if needed
    • Backrest may be raised by pulling strap in front of seat forward or by pushing the button on front of seat to lower
    • Leg lifters raise seat pan to increase support and take pressure of the ankles
    • Padded foam thighbraces may be repositioned to personalize cockpit for performance or comfort
    • Slidelock footbraces are easy to adjust from inside the boat; simply raise the black plastic rod to unlock and slide footbrace into desired position
    • Fully bulkheaded bow and stern hatches provide dry cargo storage for overnight trips
    • Cockpit-deployable skeg enhances tracking in rough water and windy conditions; sliding skeg controls are located on left side of cockpit
    • Deck rigging on bow and stern lets you stash items you'll want readily available such as a bilge pump, extra paddle and map with weatherproof case, not included
    • Soft-to-the-touch carry handles at bow and stern make trips from the water easy; unlike hard, plastic handles, the soft-touch handles are easy on cold, paddle-weary hands
    • Perception Expression 14.5 kayak with skeg weighs approximately 51 lbs.

    Rated4out of5byfromI would not buy this product againI took a trip in Kenai River from Moose river to Sweept Warter Park about 13 miles. It's a class II but its cause very very rocky. I did not want to take to Salt water for that reason.
