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.
it is everything says it is very good kayak. Great buy for the price.
Very light weight. That being said it tracks great on flat water. Not so on slightly moving creeks and rivers. Guess that's the trade off for the light weight and ease of transport!
I recently bought this from ACK to kayak in the Thunder Bay River near Alpena, Michigan. The main reason I bought it was because of the length, which is 9 1/2 feet and it fits in my Dodge Caravan and I can close the back! Old Town has a good reputation for quality work and I am pleased with this kayak. It is light and very easy to transport to and from the river in my van. Lot's of room in the cockpit of this kayak and easy to adjust the seat, it just doesn't get any simpler than this.....total worry-free kayaking. This kayak is super-stable and moves along very nicely in the water. Another nice feature about this kayak is the dry cargo space, it is so easy to get into with the locking latch, I really like that feature. Shipping was great, my kayak arrived without a scratch on it and it was delivered right to my door. I don't see why kayakers would shop anywhere else, ACK is a great place to buy a kayak. In summary, if you are looking for a great compact kayak with lots of room in the cockpit and very easy to transport, this would be a great selection. Thank you ACK!
