Great for trips

Over the weekend we did a 5 mile up river overnight trip to a lake. The kayak performed great and I love almost anything about it. 1. This has been mentioned but I will also comment - the foot pegs tend to come loose from their seats if you push hard on them. I'm thinking of picking a spot for them and tying them down so they don't move. 2. The removable dry storage tank is great but it could be better. I used it as a cooler. Put a bag of ice in there with some beers and a box of worms. It worked ok as a cooler even though it wasn't designed for that. The only grip is that there is no drainage hole so I had to shake it to get the water out then leave it in the sun to let the rest evaporate. Overall I give this kayak 4/5 stars. It would get 5 if the above issues were fixed. I might try to drill a hole in the dry tank and put a plug in it.

Pros and Cons but overall it's Okay

I bought this to tool around mostly in flat water as my Perception white water kayaks and my inflatable "duckies" don't track well at all on flat water, nor would I expect them to. I also went for this model as it has the pole holders for fishing and I expected more stability due to the marketing focus. 1. Not near the quality of a Perception boat 2. Somewhat comfortable but not for more than a few hours (older Perceptions are not known for their comfort either) 3. Not as stable as I expected considering it is a Field and Stream and looks to be geared for fishing. My wife and daughter have Perception Swifty Kayaks and they are far more stable than this boat. Likewise, as expected, my inflatables are also far more stable and though it's been a while since I white-watered with my Perceptions, I believe they are at least as stable. Again, not bad but I would have expected more stability considering the market. 4. As mentioned by others, the foot pegs keep falling off... as also mentioned, I believe a fix and recall is in order as well 5. Heavy yet the hull seams to be rather thin... odd 6. Tracks reasonably
