The Ripper, as with all Wilderness Systems boats, is very well made. Carrying this kayak is very simple either using the molded grab handles when carrying on your head or by using the cup holder as a handle when carrying under your arm. Seat and footrest positions are good and paddler height should not be a problem. Weight must be considered however, specifications suggest maximum load of 95kg. I am 75kg and at this weight water was displaced through rear scupper holes with each stroke making progress slow. For paddling suggested maximum should be more like 50kg and scupper holes should be plugged. It does not track particularly well and is best suited to its intended purpose as a surf craft as maneuverability is its strong point. There is a small storage hatch behind the seat with rubber seal which can be a bit fiddly.
