Packed with features of higher priced kayaks, the D10T Sit-On-Top Kayak delivers great performance out on the water at a great value. Designed to meet the needs of all kayakers, the D10T starts with an advanced tunnel hull design, incorporating hydrodynamics that balance stability, maneuverability, and speed. The Deluxe Seat provides all day comfort with its extra padding and ergonomic, fully adjustable design. Adjustable foot braces allow for maximum flexibility and comfort regardless of water types or conditions. The kayak's large open cockpit gives you greater flexibility in cargo management as well as offering easy entry and exit at the shore with little restriction of movement out on the water. With deep molded storage on the port and starboard sides, large molded storage trays big enough for a standard-sized tackle box, and other useable quick stow areas, this kayak gives you plenty of room for gear storage. A built-in multipurpose sternwell gives you a convenient storage space large enough for a five gallon bucket, dry bag, or a 36 quart cooler. Wide gunnels and plentiful molded flats give the hardcore paddler or extreme angler a place to stow secondary accessories. Quick hold paddlekeepers molded into the Port and Starboard gunnel allows a stable resting point for your paddle when loading or launching your kayak. Multiple drain holes in the sternwell, seat pan, and footwell areas keep water from pooling in the bottom of the kayak. The D10T comes with two Scupper Plugs for the seat pan area for winter paddling or rough water days. At the end of the day, the threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water, while the 2 molded-over rubber grip handles make carrying the kayak a simple task. Durable high density polyethylene construction. Length: 10'. Width: 34". Weight: 62 lbs. Weight with seat: 65 lbs. Maximum weight capacity: 350 lbs. Made in USA.
Advanced hull design: Custom crafted hydronamic hull encompasses an extended keel integrated into a low profile tunnel hull to achieve a perfect blend of maneuverability, tracking, and stability
Adjustable cushioned seating system: Ergonomic seat design with closed-cell custom foam package reduces wear and fatigue
Adjustable foot braces: Fully adjustable 15" foot braces will fit anyone approximately 5'2" to 6'2" in height comfortably

Rated 3 out of 5 by AZadventurer Slow, but comfortable
As a semi-experienced kayaker, I wanted something comfortable for lakes and calm rivers. It is definitely comfortable, but it takes about twice as much effort to row than the skinnier 30" kayaks. My husband has the FS12T and that just glides through the water. I would keep the same paddling rhythm as him and still be falling behind.
If you're looking for something to just cruise in, maybe bring a small cooler and putz around a lake, this is perfect for you. If you're more into exploring and going any type of distance, I highly suggest the thinner modeled kayaks.
I personally ended up returning this and purchasing a thinner model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KLewi246 Great kayak
This kayak has been a great purchase. We are new to kayaking and therefore I cannot compare it to anything but my husband's Field & Stream Eagle Talon, but I am very pleased with it overall. It is VERY stable which is a big plus because I take my 3 year old along with me. It has plenty of room for him (and I am not a small person!).
For those of you who are basing your purchase off of weight limit - it says 350 on the website but 325 on the kayak itself, and the company confirmed that 325 is the correct limit...not sure why they don't change it on here.
The color is great and very distinctive. Seems to be well made and sturdy without being too heavy. It does seem somewhat slower than my husband's Field & Stream Eagle Talon 12ft but I couldn't really tell a difference in the tracking between the 2.
