I have had my Eskia for 10 years and I love it. Bought it from a rental shop in Maine, so it wasn't even new when I got it. It has been kept outdoors the entire time and has held up very well. Agree with all the other comments. I am only 5'10, but at 230 lbs. when I bought it (less now), it provided great flotation and comfort.
Biggest issues are the weight of the kayak and poor tracking with rudder up, so I just use the rudder all the time.
The seat back was too low, but a nice birthday present was a custom seat with full seat and back support - makes it ride like a luxury sedan!
