I just recently bought 2...

I just recently bought 2 of the Apex 80xe Pelican kayaks for while I'm in college and I have taken them out a few times with several different friends and my fiance. I was a little nervous since they are rated for small paddlers (175lbs capacity) but we have definitely pushed the limits and they have exceeded my expectations. I am about 140lbs and it is PERFECT for a couple hour kayak trip in a fairly smooth lake. Although, I probably would not take it on my usual 8-hour river trips due to not much play with the weight to bring a cooler. I may be investing in a floating cooler that will follow along before too long. Oh, and the green color is awesome.
