I loved the light weight of the Mirage Sea Kayaks 582. It easy to pull out of water. It's also easy to get in and out. Easy to clean. Nice colour avalable. Low price for quality product. Extra-robust construction, It's also good for agility,speed and great for fishing. I recomend it for new member to have a try! I'm also gona have one for my husban and doughter for X'mas ! Sorry about the rating. . .I can't not selct all five and I don't know wy...

Over the last several months I've borrowed and tried my friends Mirage582-IRT and loved it, although I've had some issues with pinching from the seat pad at rear and back of thigh pressure from seat front. An added gel seat cures this. So, after much deliberation I finally purchased a 582-KEV, and have several hrs up already. Heres my thoughts in point form.

-Fiberglass - Too Heavy, But Very Durable!
-Kevlar - Just right I think, stronger than Lighter IRT.
-IRT - Best female/Elderly choice.
-Front Hatch - Much improved 8"
-Seat - Still basic, take a lesson here from Prijon Guys. Back of leg pressure and pad pinching.
-Rudder - Second to None in effect ! PITA for loading and beaching.
-Wave Handling - Love the positive pitch rides over waves.
-Decks - Stronger and Improved.
-Bulkheads - Awfully thin behind seat.
-Deck Lines - No cockpit side lines.
-Cargo Net Front - Cross bungee only, poor TBH, so much could be done here for improvement and made standard, like the under-Glovebox.
-Cargo Net Rear - None at all. Not even an option on site. Will be adding my own.
-Paddle Clamps for Self Rescue - Poorly fitting and overall usefulness. A deck recess and bungee is far better.

By far the best kayak I have padded. In calm and rough conditions it is paddles great. I would recommend mirage sea kayaks to anyone who is after a great well made kayak. The staff are friendly and nothing is ever a problem.
