Rated 4 out of 5 by Daydrew not a bad first boat
bought this boat as my first adventure into flat water kayaking. Not a bad choice. There are only 2 things I would change. First, the basic seat is just that, very basic. I would like to see something with a little higher and supportive back. The provided seat only comes to mid lumbar area and is not very supportive. Second, the rotomolded handles along the the top/side by the cockpit are not open clear through so you don't get a good controlled grip when trying to hoist or lower this boat by yourself. I was able to add some webbing handles with marine rivets to correct this. Other than that, it's a good first choice and has given me some fun this summer, just enough room for my corgi to ride up front and myself.....

This kayak handles just like the description says. If you want an inexpensive recreational kayak, this one is roomy, easy to handle, and just plain fun. Tracking takes more effort than sleeker models, but that feature doesn't tank the advantages of design and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NovaScotianBoomer Easy to use
The Cascadia is my second kayak, the first of which was a lovely touring kayak (Tsunami125), which proved to be too difficult for this Boomer in her mid-sixties to get in and out of on the rocky and uneven shore of our lake. The Cascadia is very light in comparison, a dream to get in and out of, very easy for me to use. There is of course a trade off in terms of tracking; the Cascadia gets you where you are going but it is no sleek machine. For my purposes it is perfect and I love it.
