Rated 4.4 out of 5áby 114 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Love my new Swifty Deluxe 95 It was the style and color combination that sold me, but very pleased with the quality and handling in the water that makes me truly glad I purchased. Ordered online and picked up in store. In store was on sale with deeper discount than online and they honored the discount. Thank you, Dick's Sporting Goods. We will continue to shop with you first.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Upgraded the Rating After spending many hours in this yak, paddling in heavy winds against 2.5 - 3' swells and doing some fishing, have upgraded my previous rating. This thing is rock solid, tracks very well, and drains pretty good. Not the fastest, but super stable. The rod holders are easily got at, the paddle holster is excellent. All in all not a bad boat. BUT, you may want to add some thigh pads as shown in this pic. Cut a foam noodle to length and in half, a couple 1.25" screws and washers. ALSO a big difference... No Limits carbon fiber paddle weighing in at 33oz :) July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Agile and great fun Love the perception swifty, easy to maneuver and paddle, loads of fun! July 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great Stability, love it Rock solid, slow by cuts through the water fine to paddle up a steady river. Turns, stops very well. Some one posted and dubbed it The Tug boat of Kayaks, They hit the nail on the head. 2 ft chop water breaks over the front but the deck bail drains are perfectly positioned, no water in the boat. Just keeps chugging on. Nearly can't flip. Would score a 5 if it would glide better, short boat no glide. Call a pig a pig, great boat for under $300 July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great kayak for the money. Love this little boat. It's great on calmish water and excellent for fishing. I've read all the review about poor tracking, but haven't had any issues. Hey, if you want superior tracking then spend the big bucks and get a ruddered boat. I bought it primarily for solo relaxation time on the water and a bit of fishing. It's light and easy to load on the car. The color choices are pretty if you are into esthetics. I got the teal/lime/purple and receive loads of compliments. Loads of bang for the buck if you buy one on sale. July 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5áby 5 star beginner, 3 star intermediate, 1 star expert This was my first kayak and I have since owned a few more and had more experiences with both touring kayaks and whitewater. Its a great boat for someone to learn the basics of kayaking and to stay in calm water like is mentioned elsewhere. It doesn't track the best, but not enough to annoy you, however, it turns very quickly. It is one of the most stable kayaks I've been in and it won't tip unless you're trying to, which makes it fun for slow moving rivers and lakes, but anything more would be far past its limits. The cockpit is so large that any kind of rapid or wave will fill up your boat very quickly. The only plus to that is the fact they added a drain plug. One thing to note is that there is a hatch cover, but it is not an actual dry storage so don't be fooled by that. However, since it is a rather large recreational kayak you may not find more storage in a non-touring Yak. I have paddled out to islands at my hometown lake many times to camp and I was able to fit all of my things inside or on the outside of the boat. The boat is made with good plastics and despite use multiple times a week for a year or so it holds up very well. I would totally recommend this kayak to beginners or anyone looking for a relaxing day on the lake, anymore adventurous and id try my luck with a different boat. July 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5áby Pretty, but does not track well So, I was initially drawn to this kayak because of the looks and the positive reviews. I purchased the kayak in April 2016 and was super excited to test it out as it was my first kayak I've ever owned. Well, sadly, I found that it does not track well at all. In fact, as soon as I stop paddling for one second, it veers severely to the right. My weight is evenly distributed, my foot peddles are even, etc. My friend tried the kayak and it did the same thing for her. My initial thought was that there had to be a manufacture defect since I've been in plenty of kayaks and haven't had any issues, but after contacting Perception, they essentially said it was fine and that it must be user error. I measured the bottom keel and it seemed straight, however the 2 side ruts were not straight at all...1 side was definitely longer than the other. I ended up returning the boat to Dick's Sporting Goods (since it was within the 90 day window and since Perception was no help). I reluctantly purchased another Swifty after not being able to find the Old Town Vapor 10 in stock anywhere and I have to say I'm still having the same issues! I went back and did some more research and a lot of people are saying that boats manufactured in 2015/2016 are doing the same thing mine was/is. I do like that the Swifty comes in an array of pretty colors, is pretty lightweight (for carrying purposes), and was a decent price, but I wouldn't recommend it. July 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Not a bad yak Purchased today and floated a few hours in the local river. Like the description states, ideal for calm waters. There was some wind and ~1' swells and quite a bit came over the bow, no big deal. It tracks well and is quite stable, but a bit sluggish compared to the Future Beach 126. Can't figure why they'd put a removable lid on the stern unless it was a dry compartment. The paddle holder is a nice feature. Even the sale price of $350 is steep, but I'd probably buy it again July 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5áby This kayak is roomy and stable but doesnt track Doesn't track well at all. But has lots of cool features, large weight limit, and roomy cock pit. June 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent Stability & Manuverability. A+++ It is stable, can still turn on a dime, and fast. A perfect design. Great for fishing, the flat surface in front is great for rigging up your line. The pole holders are deep and secure enough. The molded in handles are everything you could ask for. I like the ring to attach a paddle leash to. Only issue is that the 'Dry Bay' is not legit, its a hole with an un-attatched top lid, you will have to buy a dry bag additionally to put in there. -Dee June 20, 2016
