Rated 4 out of 5 by wislady Haven't tried it but looks hi-quality
I bought this mid-Oct and haven't used it but am impressed with the sturdiness of the metal. Appears to be made at a top quality level. I purchased this after reading reviews and because of Bean's 100% Satisfaction policy. Packaging was very good, lots of protection from sturdy cardboard. I gave it 4 stars because I haven't used it. Plus I had a small gift card that helped with the price.

Glad I got this. Works great with my kayaks. Only wish it collapsed, but that's only a minor complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mawo Fits a kayak like the Manatee very nicely.
Simplifies moving a kayak (or canoe) without jeopardizing the back. Simple to use, secure attachment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OldTownCanoe Too light
The concept is good, but this product is much too light to move my 90-pound canoe across rough ground. The hard rubber tires are too small and incapable of absorbing bumps on uneven terrain. I had to replace them with much larger inflatable tires, which required building a larger axle and enlarging the axle holes in the frame. It took some serious modifications to turn this product into something that I could use.

this is my second purchase of an llbean kayak cart...great price and a very effective transport method for moving your kayak to the water...we have a very light swift kayak and a heavy plastic beast that we let anyone use...a loon...so a wheelie cart is a must to make it a one person event!!...the cart is light, folds up easily, and rolls over anything reasonable..go for it...we wheel our kayaks down the lane, over grass, onto sand and rocks and into the water of lake george.

Wanted an easy way to move my Mad River Explorer by my self. This unit has been a great purchase for me.

I think it should be noted that this cart does not work for the Big Yak kayak.

Great cart and very easy to use. It fits my Tarpon 100 and allows me to move it by myself. Good purchase for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neverinside Look no more...
...is all that needs to be said. For those who rely on consumer reviews (myself included), very easy to rig (I've hauled three different model ocean kayaks by myself - just adjust straps accordingly, no fuss), rolls well through sand and mud. Straps rinse clean and hardware is good quality. I was skeptical because so inexpensive - don't be, this is it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gelkins The word is still out
I'm not sure that I like this product. I've tried it once and I was less than impressed. The set-up did not go as planned and the boat kept slipping off the cart. But what really concerns me are the gashes it left on the sides of my whitewater kayak. When I noticed them, I thought that maybe I had hit some rocks pretty hard. But then I saw the same gashes in the same spots on both sides of the boat. Yikes! Also, the cart did not pack away in an 8-inch storage hatch. I don't know, maybe it's not designed for whitewater kayaks.
