Answer: 
I'm 6' even and 275 and I've had no problem with mine. The combing is huge on these. I can even pull my feet out and dangle in the water while fishing.

Answer: 
I would look elsewhere, the plastic won't hold up to the weight capacity advertised. In and out of the hole is fine, but while sitting the plastic surround connected to the seat, back, arm area will crease and eventually crack. Very cheap plastic was used.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing I live in south Carolina, I have done long trips in this kayak without issue(45 miles down the Reedy River), easy to paddle and great stability, I have also taken this kayak down the Chattooga river sections 2 and 3. The Chattooga river is know for its awesome and intense rapids. I have taken this kayak through class 1 through class 4 rapids with ease! The only problem I have is there are no spray skirts that fit this kayak. But I have never been dump out of this kayak on any major rapids due to its stability. If your just starting out, this is a great kayak, it is a fishing kayak not designed for big rapids, but I like to push the limits of anything I get, and I have done that with this kayak. I have no issues with it, and it keeps on floating! August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Kayak, Good Value This is a nice kayak. Nothing fancy, but allows for a good time in the water. Tracks fairly well. It is already rigged for fishing, so I didn't have to drill any holes or do any installation. I have enjoyed it so far and am pleased with my purchase. If you want a good kayak but don't want to spend a fortune, this is a good way to go. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great kayak for the price. If you're looking for a good all around fishing kayak, this is a great choice. Took it to the lake for Memorial Day weekend and it did good. It is very stable. It doesn't track well in wind or chop, but is very comfy and stable to fish from. It would benefit from a skeg. But for the price,you won't find anything close to competing with it (except maybe the Aruba which is the same minus one rod mount). The paddle that comes with it is junk. Buy a better one.The shipping and tracking were annoying (shipping company"s poor tracking system, not HD's fault) but other than that, not a bad experience. I've paddled Perceptions, Wilderness, and Pelican's as well, and this is in their category for build quality. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny We have been been fishing and canoeing the lakes of the Sierra's since my two sons were born 15 years ago out of two Coleman canoes. I bought the 10' Excursion for my 15 year old son last year and we all took turns using the one kayak. I paid a little over $300.00 for that one and the minute I got in it, I knew I would be buying more. Purchased the 12' Excursion for me this year. These yaks are light, extremely durable and track just fine even into a very stiff wind and lake swells. We even fish them in Monterey Bay on flat days as we don't have skirts, yet.. Will be ordering two more this Spring. Love these yaks. Home Depot was $100.00 less than anyone else with free freight. Cannot beat this deal or these boats for the price. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very stable. Very stable. Carried kayak from KY to FL and spent a month kayaking Bay and FL rivers around Tampa. 12' stayed up with the others in our party that were using 10 ft kayaks.very easily. I added a high back seat for more support which is easy to do without damage to the original seat. A good stable base for fishing out of. March 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value, Great Fun The fact that this product sold for $150 less than the nearest competitor is wonderful! The fact that the product was delivered on time by a courteous and helpful freight company, even better. This Kayak is more than what I had hoped for, it is well constructed, well equipped with features only found on craft with prices hundreds of dollars higher. The seat is comfortable, adjustable and sturdy. the foot braces are adjustable and there are pads to protect your shins. There are three positions for fishing poles, dry storage and more. This is a featured filled bargain. I am loving this kayak! March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great kayak great kayak at a great price and Home Depot's delivery was very fast and very friendly. December 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst internet purchase I've ever made took a month and a half to get to kansas city, I had to pick it up from the freight company. #freeshipping Product itself, very cheaply built, feels good in water, but the back surrounding plastic connected to the seat has creased within 3 weeks. I'm 100-lbs lighter than the maximum weight capacity listed. Poor construction. July 17, 2015
