Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave.

Northstar Trillium - perfect fit   rating
I took my new Trillium on my first week long BWCA trip and loved loved loved it. I'm a fairly small paddler (125 lbs.), and I didn't try too hard to pack light (which I paid for on portages!), but I found it to be stable and responsive when loaded as well as when not. Portaging the boat itself - a piece of cake at 26 lbs. I'm an intermediate sea kayaker and whitewater boater, so would recommend more time on the water pre-trip for newer solo boaters. I found customer service from both Rutabaga and Northstar to be exceptionally responsive.
