Nice little kayak! This is my 2nd kayak. I bought it specifically for the shorter length so it would easily fit inside my small hatchback. It comes with a nice set of features for a kayak costing less than $300. Not as fast as longer kayaks, but is a lot of fun on flat-water and very stable. It tracks pretty well for a shorter kayak. My only complaint is the shape of the carry handles is not good-- they dig into your hands when carrying-- I plan to replace with some round tubing.
