Wilderness Systems Commander 120 Kayak Review

If you are looking for a whole new level of hybrid crossover kayak, the Wilderness Systems Commander 120 is a great option. Featuring great stability, ample capacity and comfort only matched by a canoe, this product also has superb agility. Wilderness Systems introduced a great new concept of the dual seating system, which allows the paddler to either sit inside the kayak or sit on top.

This model also provides a number of unique features such as a removable folding seat. The hull is designed much like a pontoon, making it wide enough to allow for the paddler to stand up for a dry ride. Fishing from this kayak is also possible due to its customization abilities.

Keep in mind that the Commander 120 can even be modified using the custom SlideTrax rail system.
