    Item # 833004

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 229.90 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.

    If you're looking for fun and ease while touring, the Kestrel 140 Comp kayak with rudder from Current Designs offers an experience that's pretty close to ideal.

    • 14 ft. length enhances speed, tracking and stability when covering distance on relatively calm waters
    • Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water
    • Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them
    • Unusually light, strong and stiff, the Kestrel 140 comp kayak with rudder features a hybrid construction of fiberglass and a polyaramid (the same material as Kevlar®)
    • Vacuum-bagged composite lamination eliminates excess resin, which improves strength and reduces weight to a scant 43 lbs.
    • Roomy cockpit makes it easy for any paddler to enter kayak
    • Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor
    • Use the lever-lock knob (it's similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel) to set the seat pan to the desired height
    • Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion
    • To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding
    • Seat back moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion
    • Sliding bar adjusts foot pegs without having to get out and reach inside cockpit
    • Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; toe pedals on top part of foot pegs direct the rudder and steer the kayak
    • Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover
    • Bow hatch protects contents from water thanks to a strap-down hard cover
    • Glassed-in bulkheads enhance flotation when hatches are sealed
    • Generous bungee rigging allows you to keep touring accessories with easy reach
    • Toggled carry handles ease transport of the 43 lb. Current Designs Kestrel 140 Comp kayak with rudder to the water

    Current Designs Kestrel 140 Comp Kayak with Rudderis rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromCan't get any betterI live in Florida and paddle this craft near the Cape Coral area in many areas. Calm waters and the gulf. Been in some fixes and this boat handled extremely well. Also, I never wear a skirt because I never get any amount of water in the kayak. You won't be sorry with this model for the money. I wish I had another one in Massachusetts for the summertime. I could write advertisements for this craft. I love it!
