Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmbsr34 Great fishing boat.
This is my 1st kayak and am pleased with it's performance. Easy to paddle and manage in the water. Not happy with back rest as it does not support very well. it is difficult to adjust when on the water. Overall very glad I got it.

I have had this for years. It is still in good shape. I upgraded the back rest and that helped a lot. Just for fun I purchased the trolling motor mount. Looking forward to using it this spring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Son Of a Hillbilly Great all around Kayak! Very stable and tough!
I love this kayak. I have fished from a 17' canoe and always felt uneasy and thought I was going to tip it over. I have never felt this with this little beast! Stable, sleek, large carrying capacity...what is not to love. Not a speed demon but stable like a tank. I would rather have the stability and capacity. Plenty of room for my gear and easy for me to handle (not a nightmare like the canoe was!) Love it all around! Hats off to Lifetime for this little gem!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Arford Needs a rudder
Without a rudder it is hard to maintain the kayak in a straight line due to the back end not have a V-configuration of a traditional kayak. Liftetime elected not to provide a rudder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDKevin Well thought out kayak
This kayak has a lot of great features. It is designed for one or two people but the option exists to have three riders. Perhaps two adults and one child. The back rests are comfortable and really take a lot of strain on your abs. Comfortable handle for carrying and lots of grab holes in the bottom also. Wide platform makes it stable enough to stand on and fish from. 2 rod holders make moving easy and clips on side of kayak keep paddles from getting lost. Cup holders for your favorite fishing beverages. Storage compartment is plentiful and water tight. Paddles are collapsible for easy transportation and are lightweight yet sturdy. It is very versatile in the aspect that you can add an electric motor to the kayak for even more fun. A solid kayak made in the USA

What's in the picture was not what you get. Contacted the company and they said no backrest come with the deal. Bought them from another company. Home Depot reduce the price. Thank you for that.

This kayak (included 2 Oars and 2 Backrests) comes as a total package for my family.
Not too heavy to transport and not too light to sense cheap. This kayak offers a durable and well-balanced construct. The layout and stability reflects the well-thought design. It fits three people with a total weight load of up to 500 lbs., so it’s more than perfect for my wife, kid and I. But if you plan to have 3 adults sit in it, then you might find it hard for all three to sit with comfort, it will be a little tight.
A 60 lbs. kayak with a single side handle, it will not be easy for a single person to carry it. Two handles would make the job a lot easier. It comes with 2 Oar holders, 4 fishing pole holders, 2 molded paddle holder, 3 cup holders and 3 polyethylene cell foams to provide watertight seal for 2 scupper holes.
The storage area is moderately great added feature. It’s the opening of the storage that is 6 inch in diameter but the actual inside area of the storage is quite decent. Do not just throw thing in the storage area. Here is what I did; Take an empty duffle bag and squeeze it through the storage area then tie up the bag with a bungee cord, tie the other end of the cord to the INTERIOR of the motor mount hole. While your hand is inside the storage area, just extend your arm all the way in the back and you can feel this 3 inch tall pole. That’s what you will loop through your cord. I have setup two bags as a permanent solution to hold small items. Works great for me.
We did the test drive in a river where the water was low and quiet. The tunnel hull design allows you to fish while standing but I did not take my chances on that. While staying in the real low water, I tried to tip it over but to my surprise, it kept its promise and float firm. Seat’s backrest provides half decent back support but seats are not cushioned. So, I can’t say how one would feel if you are out there for a long drift. I recommend buying cushioned seats. Keep in mind that it’s a fishing kayak with a wide built, so do not expect speed out of it.
Since it offers a dedicated area to mount the motor, we can’t wait to buy the motor mount and trolling motor along with the cushioned seats for this Kayak so we can cover a little more area without huffing and puffing too much.
Over all, we love it and are very thrilled with what it offers at such a great price from Home Depot.
Go buy it, you will like it.
