Rated 3 out of 5 by BSR1 Could be better
Overall, I'm pleased with this product. It does what it is intended to do - carry a kayak. Positives include: aluminum frame solid and durable, wheels easy to remove for quick storage of unit in hull of kayak. Negatives include: nylon strap is junk (use 48' flat bungee cords to tie down), wheels bounce at slow speed if pulled behind bicycle (not walking speed, but very slow pedal speed), wheels squeek as they turn on the aluminum axle (perhaps WD-40 will alleviate this). It would also be nice if the spring-loaded wheel pins were somehow attached to the frame with a thin cable to prevent loss. Still, this unit is as good as any I have seen thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jetstream great product
I got this cart this week. I was easily able to move my 16 ft 2 person kayak (@70lbs) by myself. (FYI I am a woman of average strength.). The tires are large and rolled easily across sand and quarter to half dollar sized coral rock. I shopped around and there really wasn't another choice of the same quality for this price. Most of them were $20 to $30 more with comparable ones having small hard wheels which do not roll across rough terrain very well. The strap holds fine but I might replace it with 2 bungee clip straps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TENRING ok but needs better tie downs
the ties that came with kit was not enough to tie down a canoe to wheel chucks.went out and bought a couple cam lock tie downs and it works great.

The cart itself is really good. It is well made and light. Everything you could want in a cart, except the strap which attaches the cart to the kayak. It is junk, and not very easy to use. The simple solution is a 48 inch bungie cord, with a metal hook. You can run the bungie cord over the kayak, and connect the ends in the small holes on either side of the cart pads. This is easier to do, and keeps the kayak attacehed perfectly to the cart. At this price, with that modification, makes this cart almost perfect.
I would have given this 5 stars, but I had to come up with the solution, so only 4!
