We purchased our Delta 12AR kayaks at Frontenac Outfitters and were amazed at the service provided to allow us to try the boats of our choice.
The kayaks are stable and handle well. We use them on small rivers, creeks and lakes. The 12foot length is good for steering in tight areas such as small creeks. As geocachers who need to get out of the boats in less than ideal conditions to reach a cache, it is nice that the kayaks can be tipped a fair distance to enter/exit in deeper, muddy, rocky or steep bottommed areas without flooding.
The cockpits are a perfect size for me, being a large guy with a hip that cramps easily, so that the boats are easy to get into and out of and allow some repositioning for comfort. They aren’t so large as to allow water to be shipped in easily in rougher conditions. Seats are fairly comfortable and have a good degree of variance available.
Storage areas are ample and well sealed.
The thermoform material is fairly quiet when paddling and light for carrying.
