I bought this kayak for my wife and she loves it. Lightweight, tracks well, roomy, good storage area (hers came with the front hatch). Her only complaint is the seat. It is a bit hard. We bought 2 cheap stadium foamy cushions ($8.00 ea) at Dick's, glued them together and we had a nice comfortable and cheap remedy. Besides that, the kayak is great. She loves the pink color. She gets a lot of compliments.
