The Dagger Zydeco 9.0 is a great option for a kayak you can easily carry and toss into the back of a truck or a car and jet off for a quick spin on the lake. The roomy cockpit means a wide range of sizes of paddlers can comfortably fit in the Zydeco 9.0. The short size gives you plenty of control in twisty rivers and inlets. The new ConTour Ergo Outfitting offers amazing comfort and has multi-adjust options for better fit and function and now includes a topographical map imagery. The Zydeco 9.0 is a great choice whether you're cruising flat water or riding rivers.

Love, love my new Zydeco. After years of renting and borrowing, this is my first kayak and it is perfect. Wanted something lightweight enough that I could handle by myself but still wanted excellent quality and tracking. Got what I was looking for and...bonus...it fits (just barely) inside my Crosstrek :) Ordering and shipping process was a breeze - excellent customer service and communication from both Austin Kayaks and the shipper.
I'm so happy with my Zydeco 9 footer! This is my first kayak and I needed a short length primarily because my only means of transporting it is in the back of my Subaru Forester. I'm a 5' 2" older woman and wouldn't be able to lift a kayak on top of my car without help, which I don't have. The other selling point for me on this model over other shorter kayaks was the double cushion seat....ha ha .... a very comfortable and important feature for me. The kayak is super light and easy to carry. It handles easily and I have plenty of room for the things I carry with me on an outing. I also love my color choice - "freeze." I figure my kayak may as well be pretty as well as functional. The kayak arrived well-wrapped in layers of plastic, and the delivery driver helped me unwrap it and gave me plenty of time to be sure it was in perfect condition.
