Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 Kayak Review

The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak is the perfect kayak for children and small adults, mainly women. The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak’s short length and light weight make it easy to paddle, yet versatile enough for all types of paddling conditions.

Pros

The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak is light, stable, and maneuverable. The Pamlico 100’s short length allows paddlers of all shapes and sizes to handle this kayak on and off the water without any assistance. The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak is a portager’s best friend.

Cons

The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak is not suitable for heavier paddlers or kayakers planning long camping trips. The capacity for the Pamlico 100 kayak is listed as 300 lbs, but I found it was very difficult to navigate with more than 220 lbs.

Overall Review

I would rate my review of the Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak as 3 out of 5. While the Pamlico 100 kayak is suitable for children and small adults, it lacks the capacity to be a truly versatile kayak. The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100 kayak is very well made and handles nicely for the right sized paddler, but I think I’ll stick with something a little larger.

    Weekends I take the Pamlico 100 out and kick some made paddling and listen to Foghat. Lets me chill out. Recommend this one.

    This is by far one of the best kayaks I’ve ever used. I bought one off ebay for dirt cheap and regardless of the age, it still works amazingly. I can’t recommend this one enough.
