I bought our kayak this summer, a deal on a renter. Didn't even try it first. (Have wanted one for 25 years, grew up with a cedarstrip canoe...)and I am SO hooked!! Live 200' from Lake St. Louis near Montreal, and have occasional use of a family cottage in Laurentians. What a change a summer makes! Very kid-friendly, steady kayak. What did we do before this?
It handles well in wind or light current. Travels well - Easily mounted on car, foam blocks and straps are enough to mount it, even on a windy day. We even squeezed it into a van. Built a carrier from the back wheels of a tricycle & wood to walk down to the water. Highly recommend the Escapade as a perfect family kayak, or if small size/portability is important.
