I just purchased a Perception Sierra after trying several makes and models at a local dealer "paddling day". What sold me on the Sierra was its relative short length, light weight, very roomy cockpit, depth of the kayak and good tracking. The tracking channels, foot braces, drain plug and deck rigging are also nice features. I plan on using it to get me into the small lakes, rivers and swamps for duck hunting. It should very easily be able to carry myself and equipment. The Sierra was very stable, tracked well and has good maneuverability. Other kayaks I tried in this length and weight class either did not offer the room, stability or tracking that the Sierra does.
