Average Ocean Kayak Review (based on 32 reviews)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tim from Indiana on Wednesday, July 12, 2017My first angling kayak... and it was worth the wait. Quality construction and materials. Clever features and a comfortable seat-back. I couldn't be more pleased with the kayak or the price. At 56lbs I can handle racking it atop my Xterra though it is a bit unwieldy at 12'1". I'm glad i didn't buy a 14ft'er. Be advised you need scupper plugs/drains to prevent a wet butt.. it has 6 holes for water to drain out or in.
I was out fishing at daylight this morning... and this rig just works for me and a #5wt. fly-rod.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by OutdoorGal from Eastern WA on Monday, June 19, 2017Love this kayak! This is our first kayak and we chose it after renting one. It's stable and easy to maneuver, plus the seats are comfortable. My husband successfully fished from it and was happy taking it out.
Reviewed by Duckranger from Texas on Monday, March 27, 2017I should have known better than to buy a kayak online.
First, the description on the website is flat out wrong. Sierra Trading Post states that this kayak has the adjustable support track foot brace system. Upon receipt, it has the regular molded foot well.
Second, the kayak arrived with a 12 inch long gash all the way through the hull. This is when things got really fun. I emailed customer service, and they immediately responded that UPS would be there the next business day to pick it up. Then I received an email stating I had to be there and that the window would be 8 - 12 or 12 - 5. My wife took off work on Monday to wait and meet UPS. UPS showed up with a truck that was too small, and then said I would have to repackage the kayak in a box to ship it back. I just got off the phone with customer service and now they're telling me I have to take off ANOTHER day from work to wait for UPS. So here we are, Sierra Trading Post still has my money, I have a useless kayak with a hole in it, I have to take ANOTHER vacation day from work to wait on UPS again, and I have to go buy materials and spend my time packaging the kayak so UPS will take it. Do yourself a favor and don't buy a kayak from sierra trading post.
