Very hard to give this boat a rating. For what I wanted in a (my second) kayak, the Vesper's specs seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Also, as my first boat is also a Dagger, I knew the reliability of the product. But after months of scrambling to get the money together to actually buy it, my test-paddle was a major disappointment: the Vesper is, just as Dagger claims, for smaller paddlers. I'm 5' 10", around 185 lbs, with average size legs, yet it was cumbersome to enter and exit the cockpit and my feet (size 10.5) felt cramped up in the bow. Alas.... instead I bought a Current Designs "Breeze."
