The Expression 15.0 offers forgiving handling and stability expected of a touring design with the performance of an expedition kayak. The up-swept bow nose and peaked deck shed water quickly, providing more speed and performance than the typical touring kayak. In addition, the progressive rocker offers maneuverable handling, so you can paddle confidently in tight, technical waters and coastlines. The Zone Deluxe Seating system is ergonomically engineered to provide a comfortable fit. Adjustable leg support eases pressure on hips and legs, while the height-adjustable backrest and snug wrap-around wings help you dial-in to the perfect fit for all-day comfort on the water.

We are fairly new to kayaking. I ordered two different kayaks as I wanted to be able to compare. I got a 16 foot kayak from another vendor for myself and the 15 foot Expression for my wife. We love both kayaks. The Expression 15 handles wonderfully and is very comfortable. The built in knee pads are very nice and the adjustability and comfort of the seat and foot braces also great. The sealed compartments are roomy. The control for the skeg is nice also. The only two draw backs we can find is that the seat back is relatively high for my wife who is small which means finding a PFD with a very very small and high back float so as to not interfere with the seat back and the other is that my kayak has a small sealed compartment directly in front of the paddler for small items such as a small camera/phone/snack which is convenient which the Expression 15 does not have. But compensating for this somewhat is that there is space behind the seat where a few things can be kept in a water tight bag. Overall very happy with this kayak.
Perception Expression 15 I've been out in this boat 4 times since receiving it a week ago. This boat is fantastic!! It was more than i could hope for. This is the 4th perception boat i have bought. The boat is quick, nimble, and handles like a dream in choppy water. Very well done. ACK, did a stellar job with communicating with me on shipping and the boat was delivered without a mark on it due to how meticulous they are with packaging. Keep up the good work, you earned another customer
