As for size, how much gear do you plan to take with you? If you're keeping it simple then stick with the 12 footer. If you want to take more gear or go on a camping trip then go with the 14. It's really going to be a minuscule difference as far as performance. It's really going to come down to you paddling both of them.

You might also want to check out the Commander 120/140 from Wilderness. I've spoken with people who have owned a Commander and Ultimate and they say the Commander tracks better and drafts in shallower water.

You have multiple seating options in the Commander with the Phase 3 and the Captain's Seat (which allows you to sit level with the top of the kayak).

And if you fly fish or want to sight fish, both the Commander and Ultimate are a breeze to stand in.

I had the Commander 120 last year and really liked it. It was hard to get rid of it but other opportunities came up.
