I have taken my vagabond on week-long trips to the BWCA twice and would not hesitate to do it again. The boat is stable, tracks well and carried everything I needed to be comfortable. It is fairly light in royalex (no longer available) and easy to carry. My only complaint is with the thwart directly behind the seat, it is too close to the seat and rubbed my tailbone,till I sawed/sanded some of it away for better clearance. I would recommend this model to anyone needing a mid-level solo canoe.
