I owned the "old style" Loon constructed from the polylink 3 material. I consider this a good choice for a beginner looking for a stable easy to paddle kayak. The large cockpit opening makes it easy to enter and exit, although the pointed front shape makes the sprayskirt difficult to pull off in an emergency. The zipper/velcro closure on the sprayskirt works well.

The Loon tracks well in calm wind. The Loon does tend to turn into the wind, at least with a 140 pound paddler. There is almost too much initial stability, this causes the kayak to ride up waves taken from the side. There is a lot of volume inside so flotation bags are a must. After 8 years and 300+ miles I still really liked the Loon in the water, but it was a bit heavy for me to lift.
