I wanted a solo canoe that was light and easy to portage, carry some gear, and had decent speed. Doing the research on my options, I thought another option was the best canoe - before I tested the Swift.
People can debate which canoe is "the best" but the reality is what works best for that person.
I highly recommend the Swift ADK Pack 13.6 canoe. Great balance of light weight and strength, and a great option to test out before you plunk some money down. I paddled the canoe for a bunch of day trips, including climbing over beaver dams, portaging, marshes, open lake with strong wind.
Love the canoe.
