Review: Love it! Very stable, tracks well, racks easily and great comfortable seating. Plenty of room for two paddlers and plenty of gear. Lots of great accessories available from Native to outfit the kayak to your personal preference.

Review: Easy to load and unload from the back of my pickup with a bed extender. Slices through the water against a 10 mph headwind. Nicely stable.

Review: Well I finally was able to get the boat out a bit this summer and so far is does very well on calm water. Rough water not so much. I recently did a trip on Lake Superior and went out during calm water. It got a little choppy and the boat swamped once. I realize this kayak is not made for big lakes but once swamped it was a nightmare to bail out. Good thing I was close to shore. You need to be a very strong person should you swamp this boat since the water weight is literally hundreds of pounds. Other than that bad experience the boat takes a good line on the water and with the rudder kit. The weight is not too bad considering the accessories either. One other issue I noticed was highway noise. If you do not have the back storage area blocked off you will have a lot of noise about 35 mph when on a vehicle. Plus the straps like to fly around so make sure you secure everything before it is on your vehicle. Other than these few issues the boat is well worth the price.
