    Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 Kayak - 2012/2013 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FREEDOM! LOVE my Pungo! I did quite a bit of Kayaking last summer with a friend and got the "fever". Researched and "shopped" all winter long for the "right" kayak. I did a lot of research and read a ton of reviews. I sat in at least 35 kayaks to get the feel. Finally decided on the Pungo. It was a great decision. She is great for lakes and fabulous on the river. I am glad that I did not go any shorter than the 12 footer (as most reviews will tell you). It is still manageable to carry and put on the car, but yet it has the length to track nicely on the water. My friend bought a 10 foot Old Town and it "wags" up and down the river. It is a lot of work to keep the 10 footer tracking on the water. I figured that IF I happened to have chosen the wrong one, resale value, at least in MN, is good. But, as with any good research and time put into your purchase, this IS the right one! Just had her on the water for 5 days straight. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. The cockpit is almost "too roomy", but it has great function. I am 5'8" and have TONS of room. I had family and friends take her for a spin and they range in height from 5'2" to 6'4" and everyone was content. The seat has many adjustments and is quite comfortable--even with a bad back. The dry well is nice and fairly spacious--nothing big enough for a camping trip, but spacious for a day trip. I would do it all over again. As a matter of fact, purchasing a second Pungo is on my list of things to do, as I love to have company on the water--but don't want to be in a tandem. Within 15 minutes I am down the road and ready to launch on a lake. It is a great stress reliever on any given day. She's a beauty!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice I use this for day trips on lakes and some fly fishing. The cockpit is large enough that I can have room to setup my rod etc. The dry storage is ample for a day trip or a camp trip (think hike-in level of gear). There is also wet space storage behind the seat and in the bow (but not easy to get at). I do a lot of solo paddling, so need a stable boat. If you are considering solo, be sure to buy a paddle float (also available at REI) and learn how to use it. You probably won't get into trouble with this kayak, but it is not the "usual" conditions you need to be prepared for, but the exceptional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pungo is a Go The Pungo 120 is my first Kayak. The seat is most comfortable and offers great support. The first time out was windy and I found the Pungo very stable and responsive. Paddling was easy and tracking good considering the wind. I love the water tight storage in the rear and the cockpit console. A great kayak...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boat We bought two of these and really like them. They are well made. The seat is adjustable in so many ways that it is very easy to stay comfortable while out paddling. When I ordered them, I did not realize how much better of a boat I was getting when compared to some of the other recreational models. The hatch has plenty of room and latches in a way that makes you confident your gear will stay dry. The boat glides and tracks very well for what is is designed for.
