I made the mistake of purchasing a cheap kayak from a big box sporting goods store - used it a few times but it was so uncomfortable I gave up, total waste of money. The Old Town Heron Kayak on the other hand is perfect! Very comfortable, easy to get in an out of the truck and into the water. I will definitely be purchasing another Old Town kayak in the future!
I wanted a lighter, smaller kayak for ease of transporting on my own. The Heron 9XT will fit inside my 2016 Prius, with the passenger seat down. So, quick and easy load, and go. I have impressed people who are inflating kayaks in launch parking lots.
