The Flex is an excellent day or overnight paddling boat. It's greatest attributes are its great handling and responsiveness along with great stablitly. Along with this is it surprisingly fast for such a short boat. It comes with a ratcheted seat and knee braces which make it very comfortable for either casual paddling or for some more focused traveling. Its skeg and hull design make it track well while also being very responsive and nimble. It has a very functional and useful day hatch that fits under the deck chords and keeps gear close at hand and dry. Its is fairly light weight for what it is and so it is fairly easy for one person to transport or roof top.
All and all its a good solid entry level or intermediate kayak
