This product review thing has helped me and the wife a lot in choosing the kayak that is right for us. So, I thought I would add my two cents in on a couple of boats we have tried extensively. The Adirondack is an extremely stable, comfortable boat. The cockpit is huge and is easy to get into. The seat alone is almost worth the price of the boat...it is, without a doubt, the most comfortable adjustable seat I've tried. (I'm 6'3", 225 lbs) The storage space in the back is huge and the cord for holding your paddle is very handy. And the Poly hull itself is very durable, strong, stiff and, dare I say, unsinkable.
However, the kayak is extremely slow. Slow. Did I mention...SLOW! Almost tank like. Tracking wasn't great. And the thing weighs a lot (between 49-55 lbs, depending on who you talk to). And the foot pegs were on the edge of too short for someone my size. But, it is a good price ($600 CDN) and it is a great beginnner/slow poke kayak. If you can tip this kayak, you shouldn't be on the water! You will, however, need a couple of people to get it on your car or truck. Great cottage or fishing kayak.
I really like the use of recylced materials by Walden, and I commend them on that. I will, however, be trying the Walden Vista instead.
