Absolutely LOVE this kayak!! I am not "adult sized", as my friends put it, and this kayak is perfect for my stature. I'm 5'1(in shoes on a tall day) 120 lbs and this kayak gives me the same performance and features as a full sized yak, while being small enough to easily maneuver. It is as durable and well constructed as it's big brothers, made out of multi-layered RAM-X polyethylene and Twin Sheet Thermoforming. Weighing in at 25 lbs loading and unloading this baby is a breeze!! Thank you, Pelican for making an affordable, smaller kayak! No more kiddie kayaks for this girl!!
