Ok, but rough finish made it feel cheap

I bought this at full price after researching many other options. Unfortunately this wasn't out on the floor or I could have better evaluated it in person. It seemed like a decent kayak online but once I got it home I realized I'd be taking it back.
The padding on the seat was the thinnest out of anything I had tried in any store. Be prepared to supplement it with something that has actual padding.

The hull around where the seat is cut out and the cockpit itself looks like someone carved it out with a mostly-dull bread knife. It was so bad and jagged I was concerned that I'd cut myself on it if I wasn't careful. No one should have to wear gloves while loading their kayak on their car.

For a rec kayak the cockpit seemed a little tight as well, but that might be a plus for some.

For the price it lacks even basic things found in other ones like a drink holder or even the tiniest of dry storage areas. I've seen ones for 1/3 less have both.
Overall it's an "OK" kayak but it would have to be half off to be a good value. I ended up spending only a little more to get a different one which was considerably better in every category.
