I had an inflatable advanced elements kayak and this boat is all anyone would need for an all purpose boat. At the time I lived in an apartment with very little storage space and I didn't have a car so this was ideal. It folded into a duffle bag and weighed 36 lbs. I got a small luggage cart that I could take it on the bus to wherever I wished! It was great because if I wanted to camp I could have my backpack on my back and hands free to manipulate the cart with kayak, paddle and gear. I had this boat on rivers, lakes and the ocean and it handles very well. The only downfall which is not really one because of it's stability is that in rough water it is more of a struggle to paddle. It is flat bottomed which makes it a bit more sluggish in rough water (not white water in a downstream situation but rough lake or ocean water).
