This Featherlite is as it says a light kayak to car top, general utility kayak. I have taken it all over and am happy with it. Got a different seat and also a 1/2 skirt which can easily carry water bottle and supplies. I added fishing pole holders too. Great all round kayak. 39lbs. mines bright green, I added a removable skeg too for lakes. I added the 1/2 skirt as I do take it sometimes in fast rivers which once got water in it. Never flipped nor came close very stable.
