This is a relatively cheap kayack. The fold down seat is very thin and the straps are not easy to adjust. There is a small covered well behind the seat but it is very shallow and the plug is difficult to remove. The paracord lanyards are way to loose and strech too much, they will not hold your gear. It does have carrying handles that makes it easy to carry but once you get it in the water, it is a nightmare to control. It doesn not track well and the slightest breeze will blow you off course. Thrown in a slight current and you will be padling madly just to try to keep your course. I would not recommend this kayack to anyone.

Pros. 1. Cheap $250.00 2. Easy to transport Cons 1. DOES NOT TRACK AT ALL. (4x left to 1x right stroke on flat, calm water.) 2. Seat bottom ripped first time out. 3. Drain slots are not threaded. 4. Tension cords/netting on front just slipped off. 5. Exhausting to paddle (my technique is not the problem) 6. List goes on and on... it DOESNT GO STRAIGHT.

This is an inexpensive kayak and it's worth it's price. It is nice and light, easy to load on top of my SUV. It would rather go in circles than straight, so it takes a little work to keep it going. It starts to turn the moment you stop paddling. Nonetheless, it sure is better than nothing. A day on the lake is always good. I hope to buy a better kayak next year but this one will keep me busy until then.

I am a beginner kayaker and so with this kayak I think it does a good job considering the price range. I take this kayak out on calm lakes/rivers and it is stable, glides average, and still does a good job if you are just looking to kayak for fun/recreationally
