Purchased at Meijer's. Seventh kayak owned over the years. I am 6 feet and 240. Kayak length is 10 feet 4 inches and fits me well. Very stable boat. 13 year old kids love the orange color. I find the seat to be very comfortable. I can adjust footpefs to my height. Includes knee pads. The front and rear hatches have nice lever locks and heavy duty rubber/ vinyl bags. The rear hatch will fit a 6 can cooler and other goodies. The front hatch works well for first aid kit and rain gear, sunscreen/bugspray. Boat tracking is acceptable. For me tends to go left a bit. I have paddled boat on rivers with class I rapids and slow moving rivers. I can travel faster and with less effort than in my old town 119 solo canoe. The boat also has a third small hatch that works well for items you want quickly. Things I do not like: Handles are just a pladtic pad eye small rope and pladtic handle. I changed these out. The small hatch nearest seat, had a tendency to fall down so I added screw to secure it. Rigidity of the plastic is OK. On a 90 degree day you must be careful not to push off of rails when getting out with to hard, as they will flex. The boat does not have a bulkhead. My solution to this. One small beachball added to front of kayak, removed rear hatch and installed two small beachballs to rear of kayak just behind the seat.
