A women's twist on a popular classic, the lightweight Elie STRAIT 120 W is easy to maneuver. Built on a deep V chine hull, this sit-in touring kayak is quicker, faster and more nimble. Available in attractive magenta, it features adjustable footrests, padded thigh braces, and an ERGOFLEX seating system for increased comfort and to help you maintain an efficient paddling position, a quick lock hatch, and 8” day hatch with storage bag and bungee cords to secure your personal items, a reflective life line, a keel extension and ergonomic carrying handles. Made of POLY-XR™, a polyethylene 30% more rigid than standard polyethylene, this sit-in kayak is lighter, stiffer and stronger.

Some of its detriments: the hull scratches easily--the plastic is too soft--not quite as hard as some of the rotomolded kayaks I've felt. I feel it's very tough, just a bit easier to gouge than other polyetheline versions.
The decals are poorly made, but the company will send you new ones for free.
Overall, great bang for my buck. And a great boat to buy if before you invest in an expensive one.
