Me and my buddy took the kayak from Europe to Borneo, Malaysia for a 3 week during expedition through the jungle in the kelabit highlands. As we organized this by ourselves, we were completely dependent on our kayak for transport, carrying our stuff for 3 weeks and safety.
We were really amazed that the kayak had not given us any trouble, considering the conditions, even on white water. We had to drag the kayak over rocks multiple times, but the kayak is absolutely made for heavy duty usage as no essential damage was visible even after three weeks of roughness.
Especially the canvas protection that protects the inflatable parts of the kayak are crucial in our view, as we have had not a single leak in the expedition, and man.. we haven't been too easy on the kayak..bumping into trees, sharp rocks... amazing!
One word of advice though, make sure it is properly inflated, especially in white water conditions.
