I have had mine since 2013 and have used it 20 plus times. It is still in good shape. I rinse it each time I put it away. I have the deluxe seats which are comfortable. I recently bought a caddy so I can blow it up at the car with a 12v pump and transport it inflated to the launch. My only issue is I can’t take it to some great kayaking places where I live because of oyster beds or too much river debris. That is why I gave it four stars.
