Wilderness Systems Commander 120 - Touring and Sea Kayaks: Reviews

The Big Easy

More than 30 inches wide, with a pontoon-style hull, the open-decked Commander is the perfect stable platform for gear-intensive outings—even if that gear is a good book and a well-stocked cooler in the gaping stern tank well. As a canoe/kayak hybrid, it's not quite stable enough to stand in but comes with a higher "Captain's Seat" molded above and behind the comfy rail-mounted folding seat. Plus, pop the lower seat off the rails and the Commander gets even bigger: "We packed 40 decoys, two dogs, guns, and breakfast," said two testers who used the camo model for duck hunting. And at 64 pounds, the Commander is (just) light enough to muscle onto your car solo. 12', 64 lbs; wildernesssystems.com
