Rated 5 out of 5 by GONEFISHIN65 Manatee Deluxe Kayak
The adjustable back rest is what sold me on this kayak. Mr. Bill, the sales associate, was very informative. This model is light enough for me to carry myself. I am so looking forward to kayaking with the Manatees in Crystal River Florida this winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kargirl First hard sided kayak
I've used it once. Smashed it on my driveway immediately so it already looks used. But, it is as good or better than the kayaks I've rented and certainly better than my inflatables. Seems to track well on a relatively calm lake. seat is very adjustable and comfortable.

Love the manatee kayaks we bought from LLBean ! Got 2 of them in the package deal, awesome price and great quality ! Have used many times the past month on our pond and down some rivers. Handle great, very relaxing, peaceful, as well as getting some exercise. Look no further if interested in learning to kayak or need a new one ! Great great value and lots of fun :))

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rudy53 Easy to paddle
My wife and I purchased kayaks to replace our Coleman canoe which was too heavy for us to load and launch.
We are thrilled with the ease of loading and off loading these from our car.
We've been out three times since our purchase once on a good size lake, once on a large pond and once in a bay. The boats perform flawlessly easy to paddle the seats are comfortable and the boats are very stable.

by skinut97 Great kayak!
We are novice paddlers and wanted to have a nice stable kayak to use at our local ocean-side park. This kayak does not disappoint. It is not horribly heavy to get on and off the car (40 lbs) and the kayak itself is very, very stable for beginners like us. I even feel comfortable using this kayak in the open ocean part of the park (much larger waves) without a fear of capsizing. I would highly recommend this kayak for other novice paddlers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayakbaer Great Value
I was so glad I ran across this kayak on sale for $319. It's a pretty good value at the regular $399 price. I have no complaints on this kayak. It handles well on the water and is light enough for me to load and carry to the water. I added a Cannon rod holder and am going to fish in Lake Catoma 3 miles from my house. This is basically the same as a Perception Prodiogy 10.0 that sells for a hundred dollars more. So buy one and get out on the lake and enjoy!!

LOVE this kayak! I got it during their 20% off sale, which made it around $400 for everything, and even less if you open a credit card. Anyway, I love it because the kayak is wider then average, which makes balancing a lot easier. The pit is also big enough for my 50lb pitbull to sit in comfortably so I have a kayaking buddy!!! Would totally recommend this kayak to anyone and everyone!!!

by stevenlinda Really enjoyable!
We are first time kayakers, over age 50. We purchased 2 of these kayaks. Easy to transport. 2 people can easily carry it to the water's edge. Seat with back is comfortable. Stable in the water. Good buy for the money! Plan on going out again soon!
