Ice Kap Reviews
Paddling the Ice Kap
Louise tried the Ice Kap as well, just to add another model
to her research for her new boat. We compared notes
afterward. She's 5'4, I'm 5'1, and in our opinion -
The Ice Kap is a sporty, responsive kayak that turns on a dime.
-It's well suited to people up to about 5'6
(I've met Dubside, and he's about the size of my son who is a lean 5'8".)
-Very small adults from 4'10" to 5'2" should definitely give
this model a try, as it is suited to a paddler with short legs
AND a short back.
-Very light adults should also try this model,
as it's recommended for paddlers up to 165 pounds. I'm at the top
of the weight class, and definitely felt BIG and MEATY in the Ice Kap.
-Though I have little or no sense of balance, that was not a
problem as the Ice Kap fits the paddler like a fine shoe. The
responsive feel was terrific, and allowed me to control
the boat with confidence.
