All in all, it does what I expect for a boat in its class. I carry a spare paddle, a single blade for threading though heavy cattails and reeds in the rear deck bungies. On the down side, the seatback seems too high,, and the foot room a little tight, although the foot rests adjust easily. I am rating it high for its class, but it is not suitable for big water.
The kayak sits low on the water and is both stable and comfortable, even for a 6 footer. At Costco it comes with Harmony Estuary paddles, deck rigging, and a padded seat back. The boat is light for it's size and even without a storage hatch, you can pack gear in the stern in addition to the deck riggings. I noticed it tracked as well as or better than the Old Town Loon 138 or the Perception Swifty. A great recreational kayak.
