Picked up from store last week and took for maiden voyage at the weekend, just me on a solo. Carried on my back for half mile in the carry case and was comfortable enough and secure. I already had a pump which had a suitable adapter for floor and sides although did not work on seats. But I simply blew my seat up using lung power. And I have to say, it was no effort at all. Of course, I couldn't check pressure but it was firm and comfortable to sit on. Took me around 15 minutes to get on water but this was my first time and will probably be less than 10 minutes next time.
I'm not a kayaker as such, but it paddled well enough. Seemed fairly straight and fast enough. When I got out of rougher patches of water, stability was good but it did make it a little slower than several hard shell kayaks that past me. That's not a criticism, I expected that, just an observation.
Was out for close to 3 hours, paddling and just floating. Sat sideways at some points with feet over side in the cold water. Very comfy and no stability issue like that either.
It was harder to pack away once back but I did it ok to transport back to van. Once home, took it out and rinsed off. Very quick and easy and it was dry shortly after - it was very hot though. Took a bit more time to pack away this time and used deflation valve on pump. It was a cinch and packed as small as when new out of the bag. Next journey hopefully with wife and dog. But very happy so far.
