My new Walden Experiance is the best of the three kayaks I have owned. I started kayaking two years ago and have been looking for a kayak I can load myself, one that is very stable, manuverable, and tracks reasonably well. I am only 5' tall and weigh 120 pounds so weight is crucial for me, the 35 pounds that the Experiance weighs is easy for me to handle and the shape of the kayak adds to the ease of loading. I should also mention that the price is very user friendly, I don't think there is a kayak of this quality that is priced even close. The only con I find with the Experiance is the seat, it is very uncomfortable, especially on long paddles and it doesn't offer the paddler the feeling of being secure when paddling in swift water.
