Size and Weight
The FeelFree Juntos is 11’2″ (3.5 m), making it a manageable size considering it has this extra space for a companion on the front. The width is 30.5″ (77.4 cm) and the weight is 60.6 lbs (27.4 kg). If you are carrying the Juntos and a kid, you will have your hands full. Luckily there is a wheel in the keel so that you can pull the Juntos behind you with little effort.
FeelFree Juntos has a capacity of 397 pounds (180 kg). There is certainly plenty of capacity to bring along a kid or a dog.
The coolest feature of the Juntos is the jump seat on the bow. Parents will love that this seat is rear-facing so you can have a conversation with your child while enjoying some time out on the water. The jump seat is comfortable and will accommodate both small and large children.
FeelFree Juntos has molded-in handles and a wheel in the keel to make sure you can move this kayak easily. It does weigh 60 pounds, so having these extra features to help you carry the kayak will undoubtedly help make your experience more enjoyable.
There is a rubber hatch on the Juntos that is equipped with a mesh bag. You can store your valuables in here while out on the water. There is additional storage behind the paddler, but it is not dry storage.
Overall, this is a very solid sit on top kayak. It tracks well, it moves fairly quickly and turns easily as well. If you are out in a light chop, the kayak should stay stable and not cause you too many issues. When it gets windy, it can be a little trickier to steer, but that is not unusual.
Durability is a vital feature of this kayak. Since it is a little heavier and it is intended for a kid to join along, you want something that won’t get destroyed or damaged too quickly. You can drag the Juntos along the rocks as you get close to the water, and you will not be damaging its capabilities or performance in any way.
