Today the market is filled with sit-on-top kayaks designed for fishing.

That’s all well and good if you live in a warm-weather place, but what if it rains? What if you want a little more protection from the elements?

Based in Greenville, South Carolina, Perception has been churning out kayaks for more than 40 years that can handle a variety of conditions. This includes sit-in kayaks that are set-up for fishing in all sorts of weather.

In our Perception Sound 10.5 review, we’ll take a look at one of these reasonably priced models. Narrower than most sit-on-top boats but still managing to cram in some custom features, it’s a boat worthy of consideration for newcomers and casual kayak anglers.


  • Lightweight design is easy to transport
  • Sit-in design provides solid stability
  • Enough custom options to get started


  • No dry storage space
  • Tracking suffers in rough conditions
  • Short keel limits its speed
