I truly enjoy this kayak, the bright yellow color makes it stand out and easily visible to other boaters. The only drawback that I see is that it did not come with a deck/paddle strap, easily fixed.
I have paddled other models - Loon 111,120, Dirigo 120, Zydago 9, Pungo 120, pimlico 100,120. I far prefer this models ease of paddling and tracking (again for its size) I have paddled a few touring models, I like them, but I do a lot of river and back water - not a ton of sea or open water - Very happy with purchase
A very nice kayak for day paddling, probably not big enough to pack down for true touring, but great for how we intend to use it.
