I've had the Outback for a year now. I love it and the family fights over it. We also have a Mirage Classic and the Outback is the workhorse, it carrys the food and the smaller kid in the wider boat. Yes boat, it is a little heavy and bulky but handles smoothly in the water and is almost as fast as the sleeker sisters that Hobie makes. The hatches are great, no significant leakage and fast access. Not bad on fast water but tracking is only fair. The sail is awesome, not perfect, but sure adds to the kayak's versatility. With a light wind the boat moves out and the pedalling added to the sail power is a rush. Excellent workmanship and very durable. The ATV of kayaks in my opinion.
