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.

Great kayak for everyday. Light, easy for one person. Tracks well. Comfortable seat. Decent cargo space. Of course, not as fast as longer kayaks, and no rudder. But perfect whenever you'll be out for less than a day. ACK had competitive price, free shipping, and arrived on time.
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!
