Rated 2 out of 5 by JohnBoyBlues Looked like a good design
Perhaps it's the shape or weight of my kayak, but try as I might the wheels just collapse when I start pulling or pushing the kayak. I've had carts before and have figured out what works for each different version. This one has me stumped. I thought the cockpit strap was a great idea for stabilizing the wheels but it didn't help. I will return and get a scupper hole style.
If you have a slender lightweight kayak, this may work for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by gonekayaking Too Heavy
This cart looked to be perfect, but...unfortunately...I have to return it. The cart being at one end causes most of the kayak's weight being on the arm of the person at the other end towing the kayak. I'm not a large muscular person, so it just becomes too much to tow very far. I need a cart that supports more of the kayak's weight...something that is placed under the kayak more towards it's center.

Was a little skeptical about ordering this for my new Manitee but it did the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joe1562 Canoe, not kayak
Well made but will not work for a kayak. Your boat must have a very pointy bow or stern. I tried this cart with two kayaks and failed. Native Watercraft's Manta Ray 11 and Ultimate 12 FX. I'll have to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fishter Not for larger kayaks
This cart appears to be well made, but the V-shaped carrier will not accept larger kayaks. Be sure to measure carefully, because a larger boat will not rest on top. I'm happy that the LLBean return policy makes it as painless as possible to find another solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bturbug Well made!
I haven't used the kayak carrier yet. It is well made and light weight. Easy to take apart and put in your kayak. I'm looking forward to using it this spring. May water ways are either snow covered or frozen due to the winter months..

Rated 5 out of 5 by leebur very useful
Easy to assemble (just attach the wheels). Tires needed a little inflating (should be between 30 and 36 psi acc. to LLB service). Worked well for two-block haul (over mostly pavement and some gravel) to put-in. Haven't had to stow it, but seems pretty easy to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyC4 Very good going up/down incline and in sand
My review title more or less says it all. Have had this cart for a year now and have found it very good going up and down a rather steep incline to the water and on sand. It fits both of my kayaks well. Priced right (IMO) for the quality of workmanship and features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ParadoxLake Easy to Use
I have used another kayak cart for years but this one far exceeds the older one in every aspect. It does not loosen and it goes over fairly tough terrain with ease.
