Tracking is comparable to the Old Town Loon 111 I had previously rented, which isn't bad for a 10 foot yak. It will drift a bit once you stop paddling, but stays straight with minimal effort. I'm still working on technique so I think that speaks well for the boat. It's light (and so am I) so it does get moved around by the wind. Plenty of storage space front and rear, but no dry storage, so have a dry bag. Foot pedals are adjustable. Nice seat for the price range, though my bony butt did get a little sore after a few hours.
Overall I'm very happy with this kayak, seeing as it's my first one. Will probably upgrade to a 12-13' rec or touring yak in a year or two.
