At $279 CDN, my wife and I just bought two Dimension Escapade kayaks. We love this new sport. I have been a canoe tripper for over 30 years and I was a little reserved about buying these kayaks. But after have testing them out extensively on a lake near our cottage and on a calm Georgian Bay, we are ecstatic with our purchases.
These kayaks track very well and are effortless to paddle. The seat, cockpit and leg room (with adjustable foot braces) make for a comfortable ride. They seem quite stable and have a modest amount of storage space behind the seat for a full day excursion. We do not intend to use them in white water, but they are excellent on lakes and as 'play boats' in Georgian Bay waves. These are great, affordable kayaks that should last us a long time.
