Would you buy a larger Eskimo Salto?

Looking for an idea of how many of you would like to see a larger Salto. Feel free to post a follow-up, but please also e-mail me so I can generate a #.

Yo G,

I am 6.1 and about 195...

As I have mentioned on Buzz many times in the past, the Salto is the best all around creeker out there and I don't think that it requires a larger size (for me anyway).

Truth is I am not really sure what the sizing is for a Salto, just that it fits and performs perfect for my size range.

If I was you, I would seriously consider updating the outfitting substantially though. It would be great to see a rachet backband and better/padded thigh braces...

Seat Pad


The after-market seat pad you wanted for your Salto is in. I have them in three sizes.

As for a larger Salto??? I think Eskimo has a lot of other changes to make first before changing the only popular kayak you guys sell.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

At 6-1 200lbs, I found it a little small. It was a few years ago that I tried one, but it seemed I would have preferred it a little bigger.
