Took my AirFrame on an across-the-USA trip this summer, where it handled major rivers like the Mississippi, Missouri, Rio Grande, etc. Quite satisfied. For the money, it's one heck of an engineering job. And for urban paddling, it lets you use a taxi as a shuttle--try that in a hardshell!
One bit of advice for those who have trouble with inflation: screw in the adapter first. Makes it a lot easier to line up the valve with the hole in the deck.
Surprised nobody else complained about leakage. Even with the spray skirt, I always ended the day with a wet butt. Not terrible during the summer, but might limit my affection for the boat in cold weather.
