Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 Kayak Review

The Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak is the most popular kayak in the Pungo family of kayaks. The Pungo 120 features advanced acceleration and top speed, making it a fun kayak for paddling recreationally. Stability control was taken into account when designing every angle on the Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak.

Pros

The Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak provides plenty of speed, stability, and maneuverability. Outfitted with ample storage space, the Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak is surprisingly light. Even when you’re utilizing every bit of the 325 lb. capacity, the Pungo 120 kayak handles like a dream. The Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak also features the patented Kayak Konsole system providing the kayaker with ample storage right at their fingertips.

Cons

The stern deck rigging on the Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak leaves much to be desired. Once you strap your dry bags to the hull, the rear storage hatch becomes completely inaccessible. This may not be of great concern to some paddlers, but I think the deck rigging could be setup much more efficiently.

Overall Review

I would rate my review of the Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak as 4 out of 5. This kayak performs very well in the water, even when pushing maximum capacity. The main downfall for the Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayak is its lack of accessibility to the storage hatch.
