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.
I'm loving this kayak. I've taken it on a couple 15 mile float trips with ease. These float trips have been on a medium sized river (no white water) and take around 6 hrs. It's spacious, comfortable and the dry well is a great size for the things I carry.
