    Three Years Use

    I use my 13’ Kimas for harder water, and love them. They’re nimble, yet track well. It’s the most bang for the buck you can find. Similar profile to the Sotar Legands, three chambers, at nine pounds more, but less than half price. There were some minor defects in construction, small waves in a seam or two, bu no delaminating whatsoever. They still hold air 100%. Highly recommended.

    Loving it so far!

    OK, so I've had my new Kima out quite a bit in the last couple months, including a recent trip down the Klickitat at around 1000cfs. The upper section of that river is continuous class III and pretty technical at those flows. The Kima handled like a dream and did everything I wanted it to do.

    I haven't loaded it down with multi day gear, so I can't comment on performance when weighted down, but I bet if I stayed under 500 pounds, I'd still fly around the river easily.

    Bottom line is I'm really, really enjoying this boat. It's my first cat, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I do have a raft, which is clunky compared to this!.

    Time will tell about the durability, but I've had good luck with PVC boats in general (knock on wood) and this one has a solid warranty.

    Great kayak , needs seat back suport.

    This was a gift to my Brother and his Daughters. They love it! Reason I didn't give 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ is because the seats have zero back support. I'm a big man over 6ft and 250 lbs and it supports me well without sagging.

    Perfect Inflatable Kayak

    When I got the kayak I immediately took it to the lake. I was excited, but nervous that it wouldn't meet my expectations. Yet it exceeded them. Great buy. Excited to show this thing off this summer. Thanks
