First kayak - great value for our purposes
Bought this kayak in orange over July 4th weekend on a whim. Figured my wife and I could enjoy some fun while getting some exercise in a new sport that would allow us to participate together. The kayak is a bit heavy, but easily handled by two persons. The seat backs are moulded plastic held in place by snap-in mounts and adjustable side straps. While not the most comfortable seatbacks, they do the job for the intended purpose of a kayak at this price point. The rear 'handle' is a moulded grip point, not the best but it works. I intend to add a corded handle as is on the front to aide in transport. The kayak tracks well in the open but protected bay and in the local water control canals. I'm 6', she's 5'6' and we both fit comfortably in this kayak. We transport it utilizing the stock roof racks on a 2dr Ford Explorer - easy enough done by one person once you get the procedure under your belt. All in all, a great value for enjoying some fun on the water
