Storage options include rear storage compartment with lid and shock cords as well as front storage deck with shock cords. Front and rear towing handles and cut-out carry handles on either side of the kayak allow easy transporation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I bought one of these and love it. I new at kayaking and wasn't sure what to buy. I asked the salesman at Sports Authority for a kayak that is stable and good for beginners. The boat is very stable, not built for speed. The perfect starting kayak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Timer I bought this kayak for its price point and also, I have never kayaked before. My family and I used it today and the kids enjoyed it. The only issue is that some water would get into the hull and we would have to empty it out from time to time. Other than that, a good starter kayak. We will enjoy this kayak all summer long. I would like to try to the sit-on-top kayak in the future, though, just to see the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very easy to handel in and out of the water i have bought 4 Kayaks in the last month alone. My wife , who didn't like to do anything outdoors went Kayaking in the ocean with our friends. We now have been to all the reservors within 1 hour of our home. We go out at least twice a week no. The other day she said to me , "why didn't we buy these years ago". I gently reminded her that she was the one that didn't want to do anything outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kayak for the money Easy to carry, comfortable, plenty of room inside to store fishing gear. Love the color. Very easy to clean, it has a drain plug so you can let the water out of it after you clean it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Customer Service! Lifetime decided not to continue selling spray skirts for this kayak, and only lists Length and Width. Obviously, the circumference was missing. Customer service transferred me to one of their kayak specialist, Caleb, who was nothing short of "GREAT". His database did not have the info, so we went into the warehouse to find this exact Kayak, but to no avail. So I asked how can we think outside the box to achieve our goal, and he suggested talking to one of the engineers while I waited on the phone. Within two minutes, he came back with the answer, 109.5". He told me the engineer checked via a design program, and bingo! My only complaint is that this info was not listed within their specifications, and hopefully will be confirmed and listed within the day. I would have given it four stars, but Caleb went beyond the call of duty, hence the five stars. Once I find a spray skirt that will fit a 109.5" opening, I will buy it immediately!...and I'm not one to write reviews, but when someone shines so bright, I just had to let their customers and company know. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for a great sale price I bought two of these at the beginning of summer on sale and used them several times. The family had a great time with them and they are light enough to make loading them simple. 5 stars

Asked by: Mike
We are always working on improving the designs on all of our products. The overall design of this kayak is going to be very similar from year to year. Looking over the two years that you have asked about the only difference I have been able to find is the seat/backrest that is used on this kayak.

Customer service hours are Monday-Friday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (MT).
