This is a very versatile kayak, ready for any fun in the water. It is very durable and can be 2 person or one. It can go in whitewater, ocean, or lake waterways. I only have to be careful if I am near an old deck with loose nails due to a possible puncture. The boat has never had any issues, and we take it everywhere. The carrying case is made so you can carry it on your back or with the 2 handles. The inflation is quick and the two way valves prevent air from exiting when you disconnect. I would highly recommend getting this kayak. I love the ease of putting it in my car and being able to drive anywhere with no fear of it on the top of my vehicle.
