Wilderness Systems Aspire 100 or 105?

My wife and I are in the market for two new Wildnerness Aspire kayaks, but I’m not sure if we should get the Aspire 100 or 105, or one of each. No local dealers have them in stock, so I’m going to have to order them online and hope I got the right size. At the moment, I’m thinking of either buying two 105’s, or a 100 for my wife and a 105 for me.

I’m 6’1" and 165 lbs., so I’m relatively tall but pretty skinny. My wife is 5’8" and I think about 150 lbs. (Don’t tell her I posted her weight online! :wink: ). Might we both fit in the Aspire 100?

My previous kayak was a Wilderness Systems Palmico 100 which fit me well and was only 9’6" long, compared to 10’ and 10’6" for the Aspire 100 and 105, respectively. The Palmico has a pretty large opening, making it a nice size for my long legs.

I was hoping to post this question on the Wilderness Systems forums, but they aren’t approving my forum membership request :frowning:

His and hers
Based on your specs and my familiarity with those boats, I’d go 105 for you and 100 for her. Have fun!
