do not use, and will probably never use thigh straps. The Tarpon has been rebranded as a fishing kayak and the need for thigh straps on a fishing kayak is almost non-existent. The Dagger Kaos (a surfing SOT) and Torrent (a whitewater SOT) have thigh straps because they fit the purpose of the kayak.
