Rated 4.8 out of 5áby 27 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby BGW99 pretty good Overall it is well designed with the weight and general feel and look. We are disappointed that it does not come with plugs. We recommend purchasing these before use. My other issue is that the seats could be more supportive. October 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Burnout101 Very stable, tracks straight This is my 4th Kayak but my 1st tandem. We purchased it so we would not have to bring so many kayaks for the family to enjoy the sport together. First time out I had my eight-year-old son in front of me and my five-year-old son behind me and I paddled from the center of the kayak. I was able to navigate with no problem with only me paddling and turning was a breeze. It tracks very straight and true. Later in the day I moved to the rear of the kayaked with the five-year-old in the middle and the eight-year-old in the very front. Even when my son in the front got tired of paddling, I was able to control the whole boat from the rear with minimal extra effort. I will be taking this on a camping trip by myself as a solo kayak because I have so much extra room for all my camping gear. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice big solo or a good tandem. September 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby DDTD Very satisfied with Perception Rambler tandem This kayak is very stable in the water and met all of our expectations. If you are looking to stay dry, this may not be the one for you, but it is a water sport and we fully expected to get a little wet. My wife and I are in our 50s and were easily able to stay ahead of our 20-something children who were in single kayaks. Great fun and highly recommended for the novice or more experienced folks.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Maineattraction1 Great Kayak for the price point My wife and I found the 135 very stable on a big lake (Sebago). It also tracked very well. The staff at Dicks was very helpful. Thank You September 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby mom1974 great product Taken it out several times. Very easy to handle by myself. Easy to maneuver and tracks good. Now if I can get my lazy kid to go outside lol. You won't be disappointed September 9, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jkoeh330 Love it, but it's heavy We purchased this tandem kayak for our first kayaking experience. We are total newbies and so far are loving this purchase. We've taken it out to local lakes and slow moving creeks/rivers. It fits my husband and I plus our three year old very comfortably. There's plenty of room for a cooler in the back as well. It's very stable in the water. Our only issue is it's heavy and bulky making it hard for us to load it on our van and getting it to water. I wasn't expecting having such a hard time. Two men can easily carry it but I'm a small 5'0" and 100lbs so my poor husband has to do most of the work. But we love riding together so I wouldn't trade it for two smaller boats. July 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Linda75 Love it! This is my first kayak and I love it. Easy to handle and definitely tough. I have used as a Tandem and I have had it out alone. It is heavy, I had to go back and buy a cart. It was money well spent. Myself and the family have had a lot of fun in it. July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby tigerace351 Excellent boat! Doesn't get any better than this. If your looking for the biggest/best bang for tour buck, than this is it! It might be 13 foot long, but I have ridden in dozens of boats and the common knowledge is true that bigger is better, meaning more stable. I have searched high and low for a multi use boat; fishing, family and ocean fun, and the price for this guy that can hold 3 people @ 550 lbs, you just can't find it. Going out fishing solo in the Tampa bay chop and shark infested waters, I have no reservations what so ever. Super stable, roomy as you can get, plenty of area for bolt on accessories, you would not be disappointed. They were completely out of stock and on backorder for 6 weeks everywhere in my area, so I traveled 100 miles to the next available store to get it, and it was worth it! If your looking into this boat, you won't be disappointed. Hope this review helps. July 13, 2015
