Well, my Revo 11 showed up last week and during its maiden voyage on a large glacial fed river I learned that the Revo 11 is nowhere near as sturdy and safe as my Outback (nor is it advertised to be). I think I will eventually get used to the tippyness but there is no way to prevent the front end of the kayak becoming completely submerged in Class I/II rapids with your arms getting soaked unless you raise your hands up off the rails at least 8 inches. The Revo 11 rides very low in the water and any wave over a foot and a half will get you wet in a river.
I've used my Outback usually up into December up here in Alaska and I've always stayed dry. I'm sure Hobie doesn't recommend taking these kayaks through Class I/II rapids and the kayaks are not specifically designed for it but I've always felt very safe and dry in the Outback. The Revo 11 is going to require a lot more concentration and some shoulder length Atlas gloves once the temperature dips later this Fall.
On the other hand this thing is a breeze to pedal and holds position over the fish far better than the Outback. After years of using the Outback this thing is almost effortless while peddling against a strong current.
Doesnt sound like you'll be dealing with the same type of water so I'm guessing you may have less of an issue getting wet. This thing is LIGHT though and much easier to handle out of the water.
Couldn't get a photo of the front end of the Revo swamped but maybe when I get used to thing I'll snap a photo.
