Loved the product, even with its fishy tracking...until I took the tubes out of the hull for a complete drying. Impossible to push the valves back through the hull. Customer service COMPLETELY useless and unsympathetic to boot. Just push he said. Short of cutting the material, not sure how to salvage the expense. EPIC FAIL.

I am really enjoying my AE Lagoon 1. Setup is really easy - literally from the car to the water in less than 10 minutes. Takedown is also easy with the AE double action pump, used in reverse to remove the air quickly. I give it a quick wipedown on the shore, then once I get home, I spread it out in the living room, wipe it down more thoroughly, and leave it to dry, which only takes a few hours.

Performance wise, it doesn't have the best tracking, which I feel is due to the short length, and does wobble a bit. I found this was improved by adding some weight to the bow end, and paddling with short strokes. It feels very stable on the water. I've only used it in a calm bayou, so can't comment on performance in rougher water.

It is lightweight, easy to carry, and the construction seems durable. It's a good option if you have limited storage space and/or transportation issues. It folds up into a bag the size of a large suitcase, and it easy to carry. You won't win any races with this one, but will certainly have lots of fun!

The Lagoon 1 Kayak is quick and easy to set up and take down. It is lightweight to handle and get into the water. Paddling this kayak is fun. It is very stable and tracks very well. Handles light waves well. It folds up in a case about 3'x3' which makes it easy to store.
