Solid stable kayak with plenty of space to carry stuff. I'm an intermediate, this is a beginners boat, but great for introducing friends and for hauling loads, does well paddling upstream in a light current, paddling against wind (get a skirt for spray or you will get wet). Seat is WAY comfortable. At 40 lbs, easily handled by a smaller woman (like me) by herself.

I'm a solid intermediate and I love this boat - fast for racing, goes swiftly against current, I'm had it through class 3 whitewater. I weigh 155 lbs and I'm 5'5" with a 32" inseam. My only drawback to the boat is there is no real rear hatch so getting stuff into the back (for day tripping) is a pain. Other than that, this is the #1 boat I take out of my fleet...weight at 45 lbs beats out my 57 lb seayak any day unless I'm going to be out for more than 12 hours, or have a friend or two along.
