I have owned this kayak for approximately a year now. It has room for two adults and 1 child. I used this last summer with my wife and 10 year old daughter in our local lake. The kayak is very stable and moves at a steady pace even though it has some weight to it. The maneuvering capability is sufficient; you may have to make a few more side to side motions to keep on track while paddling. I also customized this kayak for fishing, and it works out great for stashing gear and holding your poles. Please note that this kayak is heavy, and takes a lot to get used to if you are going to use this by yourself. The size is nice and doesn't look that long, until you try to stand it upright to put on top of your car. I could never get enough holding power, so I installed 3 additional handles so I would be able to pick it up to place on top of the car. I also had to buy an attachment for my bike rack. It's a bar that sticks out and act as a 2nd person once you place the kayak in the corner. Even though there are minor drawbacks to this kayak, I am still giving it 5 stars because the kayak has done everything I've asked of it. The price was also nice, it holds 3 people, and this is a solid body kayak. For family trips and fishing this is a sure thing.
I've had this kayak for about a year now, caught lots of fish out of it. I live in Florida and alligators are everywhere, so tipping over is the last thing i want to do= very sturdy for a 240lb man. I'm more than happy with this kayak for the price, I lost the back rest somehow (i haven't a clue) and reached out to customer service and they are sending me a new one at no cost!! Literally the 1st time I've ever got something for free. It really means something to me, 1st-built/made in the USA, 2nd- take great care of the customer. I will definitely recommend Lifetime Kayaks and will purchase another Lifetime kayak. Thank you Lifetime, from a truly satisfied customer!!
I bought this kayak so my kids could paddle around together instead of fighting over who could go out on the wave kayak that we have had for a few years. It was a great purchase. I love how durable lifetime kayaks are. These products help make ladting memories and keeping up with our active lifestyle.
We bought two Weber 132 three months ago. We decided to try the sit on top for ease of getting on and off. It is just that! Our primary use is for exercise and a little fishing. We have used them multiple times on rivers and lakes. The Weber 132 for an entry level kayak is affordable, comfortable and very stable on the water. Our friends have tried them and now own them as well. the best part, my Wife and I don't argue over who's paddling the wrong way anymore. Anybody want to buy a couple used canoe's? I believe we are sold on kayaks.
