I was very excited to receive this product from the many good reviews I read and from a buddy of mine that actually bought one too, however, during my initial setup the very top right corner on the chair back side ripped!!! My initial thought was "#@% I did something wrong" but upon further investigation into the inside of the tent I noticed that the tent was sewn wrong thereby attaching the side of the tent to the corner further down than it was meant to be. Imagine my sigh of relief...I'm hoping this is just a rare occurrence because the rest of the tent cot is very well made (and I checked EVERYWHERE). I did a replacement request *** within 20 minutes of opening box so I'm crossing my fingers this will be an easy exchange...but onto the review. I like the foam mattress that it comes with but I may still add another thin air mattress as I prefer the comfort for my back. The head room that this oversized tent cot comes with is just right for my 6 ft (200+ lb) frame while sitting toward the center but you wouldn't be able to hang a light there at the same time. That was a nice surprise too, that it even included ties at the very center to do so. There's 4 hanging pockets on each end (3 small and 1 large that has a velcro closure) but they face toward the outside of the tent and seems it would be a little awkward getting things into or out of unless you were grabbing whatever out from the outside when the ends are open but this is a very small inconvenience for myself. There's a small vent door on the top center of each side door that is secured with velcro running down the sides to keep it open or closed at any position that I imagine is to cut back on condensation inside (very clever) or just for someone else to peek inside and talk to you (Ummm, ok) as it is located on the outside portion of the doors. The poles up top are simple enough with ends that are simply placed into the holes on plastic connectors at each end and are held in place by plastic connectors that just snap onto the poles, very convenient for small areas as you don't have to start feeding the poles through anything. The zippers have color coordinated cords for easy opening (black for outside tent portion and yellow for inside mesh). The legs come with sturdy plastic feet attached to them with teeth for traction. I knew that it was a 4-in-1 system (chair, lounge, cot and tent cot) when buying it but found that the chair configuration was somewhat larger than I had hoped for as I cannot sit all the way back and have my feet on the ground at the same time. Maybe this would be better for someone larger than myself as there is plenty of room on this cot to fit those individuals but I have to scoot up and forgo using it comfortably and it's not the reason I got this to begin with. Everything else works just fine though. All-in-all this tent cot is what I hoped for and more (minus the defect) and once I get my replacement I will definately give the quality of this product an EXCELLENT and refer it to all my friends. I hope this helps others looking to buy this.
this was a birthday gift from my sons. Wanted this for the nontip feature. I wanted it especially because I wanted to take my rottie kayaking. And I must give the highest rating because it proved its worth. Took my dog out for the first time and she jumped over board. We were in the middle of the lake And the dog is months old and 70 pounds so it took some work but I was able to pull her back on board and my kayak did not fail me. Love my kayak !!!!!
It works perfect with our kayak. It is easy to install and easy to keep our kayak for storage. We did install the hooks on our fence posts in our back yard since our kayak is a giant yellow plastic one just like the one you see in this picture. It is perfect!!! Wish we found this a long time ago.
This kayak has been in service since July of 2011 (4 years now) and has lots of miles on it now. No one kayak is perfect for everything, but this one has a lot going for it. I, and others, have been on it with another kayaker (tandem) and also solo. I really like that my butt stays dry on this kayak. I do not like the color though. The Manta (same design, but not rigged up for fishing) comes in a lime green and it stays cool even in the hot southern Florida sun, but this olive green kayak gets so hot you can not touch it. I hope Lifetime will make the Sport Fisher in a lime green, which is also one of the colors that is safer on the water because of it's visibility (the other two safest colors are yellow and orange). I (we) use this kayak in fresh water and salt water inside and out in the Atlantic Ocean for all kinds of fishing. It is even safe and fun to surf back to the beach (unlike my over $2000 kayak which is dangerous in the surf). It tracks surprisingly well for a 10 foot long kayak. It is not a fast kayak, but that is a small price to pay for the stability and the other features of this fishing kayak. The tri-form hull generally sacrifices a little speed, but adds a lot of stability (which is great for cross-over sports like fishing or diving). When we come up on some tailing Redfish on the flats and stop paddling, the kayak stops pretty quickly and quietly and we do not have to "back paddle" which scares the fish. I attach a "milk crate" to the kayak to carry gear and use a soft cooler to keep our fish fresh. The person in the photo I am sending along with this weighs over 300 pounds and is very comfortable on the Sport Fisher. I weigh 180 and I am very comfortable on it too. I have used this kayak for four years now and there are no other kayaks in the price range that fish anywhere as well as the Lifetime Sport Fisher and I expect to use this kayak for at least another 4 years.
