Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 Kayak Review

The Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak melds the speed, tracking, and storage capacity of a touring kayak with the open cockpit and comfortable ride you would expect from a recreational kayak. With the Wilderness Systems patented Kayak Konsole, the Pungo 140 kayak is rigged and outfitted for your next kayak adventure.

Pros

The Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak was definitely designed with the paddler in mind. Every nook and cranny of the Pungo 140 has another use or purpose. There is no shortage of storage space in the Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak. The Pungo 140 features two storage hatches, plenty of deck rigging, and the patented Kayak Console system to ensure that not only your paddling gear stays dry and secure, but you’ll always have what you need close at hand.

Cons

With a deck height of only 13 inches, the Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak can be a little rough on the knees. If you are a kayaker that has long legs or sensitive knees, than the Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak may not be the right kayak for you.

Overall Review

I would rate my review of the Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 kayak as 4.5 out of 5. I am only 5′ 8″ tall, so I didn’t have too many problems with the shallow hull. I actually prefer the low height as I find it allows me to navigate through the water more effectively. The Pungo 140 loses half a point for the fact that not everyone can comfortably paddle this kayak, but as long as your body size fits, it surely is a nice quality kayak.
