    Great price for all purpose kayak
    My husband and I did some serious comparison of kayaks and retail stores and we were really impressed with two things: 1) Academy's great customer service in helping us select the right kayaks and get them delivered to the store for us, and 2) This product as far as quality, features, price and stability. These were our first kayaks and we wanted something that would work in rivers and lakes, as well as at the Texas Coast for fishing. We liked this kayak so much that we each bought one. Academy ... read more jumped to work to get them shipped to our local store from two other locations. So I'm 52, a women and about 5 foot 3 inches tall and my hubby is 60 and is 6 foot 1 inches tall.This kayak is actually perfect for both of us. Super stable and easy to get in and out of--even in deep water. the various features for fishing and securing gear are great. Everything from the cord to secure our ice chests in the back to the console in the middle for mounting fishing pole holders or holding a soda. Great arrangement for clipping your paddle in. Seat is wicked comfortable. I also love the adjustable foot rests. I definitely recommend this product and this store.

    Great fishing kayak!
    This is my third old town product to purchase. I love the quality. It is a fast and stable kayak. Great for the waterways of central alabama.

    Excellent all around boat
    28"wide x 12'0" long, this is a great boat not just for entry level, but for any level. With the low center of gravity and the extended cockpit I use this boat on the Class II and Class III rivers. I did retro fit the canoe seat on top of the existing seat for additional comfort. Plenty of room either side for rods, plenty of room behind seat for gear. I wish OLD TOWN would have installed the webbing over the back well , otherwise it fishes well, tracks well, and it is a stable boat.

    Good boat
    I have owned this boat for two months and it is great. It handles well on the water. It is faster than I expected. Get a pad to sit on or your butt will hurt after a couple hours. It is light and easy to load. It is ready to fish as is with great storage. I really like this kayak.

    Great Kayak!
    I love this kayak, you can't beat it for the money. It has plenty of space for storage, very sturdy, and very portable. Only downside to it is that the seat is trash, but I stand for the most part in the kayak, so it doesn't bother me as much. Included is a YouTube review I did of this kayak.

    Great kayak for the price.
    We just bought our first kayaks about a month ago and we love them and use them regularly! I am 5'6" and my husband is 6' and the fit is great since they had adjustable foot holders for the varying heights.

    great for the lake
    I have enjoyed the heck out of this kayak. I've been using it on the lake, and it seems very stable to me (5'8" average build female). My dad says it's a little more unsteady to him, I guess since he's taller. I am completely pleased with this kayak. I can comfortably take it out for hours at a time. It's a great lightweight option for a beginner or recreational paddler. Great deal for the price.

    An excellent kayak.
    I have two kayaks - a Pelican Icon 120 and a Pelican Castaway 116.  I have used both several times now.  There are some clear advantages to the Icon.  It is a larger and more stable kayak, which makes it better for fishing and for someone who isn't comfortable on a boat that rocks more.  The Icon also tracks well.  The only downside, compared to the Castaway, is that it isn't as maneuverable (which is a trade off with good tracking).  I can carry both in my Ranger pickup, and both are light ... read more enough that I can load them by myself.  For fishing and for lake use, I definitely recommend the Icon 120!

    Great Beginning Yak
    After looking around at other kayaks, I decided to start off with an Icon. For the money, it's a pretty good boat. Lots of space in the front and back (I was able to set a milk crate in the back with bungies), adjustable foot pegs, and good handling. Didn't feel tippy or unstable, and after a solid 5 hours on the water, the inside was dry as a bone. I wish it had more weight capacity (350 lbs. total), but again, for the price, it's a good start. Also, lots of room for rigging (mine has an anchor ... read more trolley, some cleats, and plenty of pad eyes now).

    My first kayak.
    This is the first kayak I've purchased, and don't have a lot of experience with them, so this is a noob's review. I was very surprised at the ease of travel for the size, I was thinking it would take a lot more effort to propel it but it's very responsive. Coasting though, it does like to veer off course and wind does move it around quite a bit. It is very stable and offers a great platform for fishing. It has mounting screws for a rudder so that will be an up grade needed before going offshore. ... read more All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and think this kayak will provide years of fun.

    Excellent for the price!
    I've owned this kayak for roughly one year and I have many great things to say about it and very little complaints. First off great kayak very fast and stable due to the length and width. Next I enjoy all the storage area although the front hatch opening is a little small but can easily be enlarged with the Heritage Redfish 12 hatch which is what I did. Finally it comes with everything you need to go out immediately and have a great experience! The only complaints I have about this kayak plain ... read more and simple are the weight and placement of the handles which makes it super awkward to carry but I would still 100% recommend this kayak to anyone!

    Excellent lightweight rec. kayak
    Very stable, roomy, comfortable, nimble, good tracking. We've had a lot of 10' yaks and the Featherlite and Swifty are the best designed/well made of the affordable entry level boats. We use in lakes and rivers (up to class 2) with the Featherlite 9.5 my favorite

    Best Bang for your Buck!
    I have owned this kayak now for about 7 months. It has done everything I've asked it to. The yak cuts through the water really well, and goes through shallows even better. It has plenty of storage and seems very steady on the water. You will not be disappointed. A+

    Worth Every Penny
    Im a college student and a avid bass fisherman. i needed something that was reasonably affordable and extremely reliable. This kayak has incredible stability and performs against wind and choppy waters great. The dihedral hull is incredibly stable and it really does cut the water well. I bought the ore, anchor and kayak for about $420.00 not bad at all for of well it performs, the amount of bass I've already caught and the many more to come. Academy should really advertise this kayak more. ... read more Canada did an awesome job at designing this product. I really like seeing other countries other than China on the manufacturing sticker.

    Sits too low
    This was my first yak and I learned after buying another type that it sits way too low in the water. And watch out in rapids it will throw you off. Better for people less than 160 pounds.

    Good kayak for a person on a budget.
    I have bought two kayaks in the last 6 months - a Pelican Castaway 116 and a Pelican Icon 120.  I thoroughly enjoy both.  I bought the Castaway first when I caught it on sale.  This is a good all around kayak for what I want to do, which is paddle for exercise and fun and also to fish.  It is light and easy to load on my truck by myself.   Compared to the Icon, the Castaway is faster and more maneuverable, while the Icon tracks better and is more stable.  I have no problems keeping the Castaway ... read more on a line as long as I am paddling, but as soon as I quit paddling it drifts off to one side or the other.  When I run a river, I prefer the Castaway; while I prefer the Icon for lakes and fishing.  But both are acceptable for either situation, it is just that each is slightly better for a particular use.

    very stable, even for a top heavy guy
    I own 3 of these and a more eskimo type kayak, these outperform the other 5 to 1. I am about 240 lbs and stability is not an issue as with the sit inside eskimo style.

Sit-In Kayaks

Avid kayakers can enjoy the features of sit-in kayaks, which may be equipped with an adjustable seat, molded-in cup holders, padded cushioning and roomy cockpits for extended time on the water. Sit-in kayak privide a little more protection from your environment while paddling, but can be more difficult to get in and out of. When browsing through kayaks for sale, you can find kayaks and canoesto help customize or store your kayak.

Sit-On-Top Kayaks

Immerse yourself in the fresh air with sit-on-top kayaks that let you sit on top of the kayak rather than in a cockpit. Paddle keepers, rod holders and swivel rod holders make sit-on-top designs ideal for fishing kayaks, and padded seats allow you to lean back comfortably as you cast out your line and wait for a big catch. Fishing kayaks offer durability and storage space for all your gear.

Inflatable Designs

For quick excursions on the lake or for fun out at camp, inflatable kayaks offer a viable option. The lightweight design of inflatable kayaks makes them ideal for moving between locations or for tucking away on the go. Units with hand pumps make inflation and deflation simple. Even though they are lightweight, inflatable kayaks come equipped with helpful features, such as cargo nets for keeping accessories in place, deep cockpits for added stability, polyester deck covers to protect against UV rays and grab lines that let you pull the unit easily out of the water after your adventure.
