Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak Review

Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak  is the 'most popular sit-on-top (S.O.T.)' in the Tarpon Kayak Series that also includes the mid-sized Tarpon 140, as well as the massive Tarpon 160. The 120's popularity is largely due to its more manageable size and reduced weight.

The Tarpon 120's efficient layout still leaves plenty of room for paddlers and gear, while their cool SlideTrax Accessory System neatly accommodates your add-on's. Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak retains enough volume to fit a 'wide range of paddlers'  from 100 to 220 lbs, yet is still light enough for most family members to handle in & out of the water

Tarpon Series kayaks ingenious hull design includes two inverted keel strips, which aid in tracking (the ability to paddle straight), without impeding the crafts ability to turn. Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak Wilderness Systems has improved their already amazingly comfortable seating system! The Phase 3 AirPro seating system features a user-friendly design with ergonomic elements to increase comfortadd adjustability, and provide additional support.

"Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak is its best selling family S.O.T. due to its manageable size and versatility . It's terrific for lazy sunny days spent exploring the lake or just quiet time away to read a book and work on your tan. Sounds great already doesn't it!"
