I purchased this for my husband and I to try kayaking before we committed to two singles. It really did blow up in no time at all with the foot pump, even though we bought another pump to run off of the car. The foot pump was a pleasant surprise! The kayak looked narrow for us before we got in the first time, but that was deceiving, as there was plenty of room, and we were very comfortable. This was a great deal for the deluxe package, and all we needed were lifejackets, then we were on the water. It shipped quickly, inflated quickly, and fits all in the bag which we can put right into the trunk of our mid-size car. Love this, and will loan it to my parents for their RV. It has a bit of yaw, being inflatable, but other than that- which you just have to adjust with rowing- this is a fantastic, fun, relaxing kayak. Don't second guess this- I highly recommend it!
