Ideal for fishing, canoeing, or just paddling on the lake, the Coleman Fastback Kayak provides a quick, easy way to get out on the water. The Fastback Kayak is a 1-person craft, 10'10" long when inflated. It's made of durable 840D nylon on top and 840D woven, laminated nylon on bottom, with a heavy-duty cover. It boasts a 30-gauge PVC bladder. The kayak has many features for safety, comfort and convenience, including neoprene paddling guards, dual-bladder hydration system, retractable spray skirt, a water-resistant pouch, mesh storage, a large storage compartment, multiple D-ring hooks, and pull handles. Coleman kayaks feature an aggressive deep V entry hull for easy paddling and greater speed. The hull flares out to a wider beam with two additional lateral keeps for stability and superior tracking. The Coleman Airtight System and Double-Lock Valve guarantee a leak-free inflatable, and make the kayak easy to inflate and deflate quickly.

I took another reviewer's idea and sprayed a canvas water sealant on everything on this kayak that was not the tarp at the bottom. Seemed to be moderately effective. The spray skirt does not seem to work as well as I hoped, it seems fine if you are careful with the paddles, but any accumulation of water seemed to run down to my legs. There is plenty of storage on this, as the back on the back not only raises over the back of the kayak, but there is a place set in that is already 6-8 inches deep. I typically have a backpack full of things like drinks, the dry bags, a towel or sweatshirt, and even when it is completely full it does not fill up the back of this thing. Also there is a mesh pouch above your left leg, and the dry bag above your right, which works excellently to hold a couple maps and even a camera.
This thing is very stable. We had our relatively small lab in the back of one of the kayaks, then it jumped from the back of it to the front of the one I was in without any problems. When it went into the water I was able to reach over and pick it up by its life jacket with one hand and set it on my lap. During this whole process I never felt like this would capsize.
As far as performance, this thing is an inflatable kayak. It does not track as well as a hardshell. Also it is not as fast as one. You should expect that though, as it is an inflatable kayak. It is not awfully slow, but it is not awfully fast either. In the channel of a river with some wind, it was not taken by the current that particular day, but was not blown all over either. But that would vary so much by condition it is difficult to judge.
For durability, it seems as though it will last quite a while. The bladders appear to be very sturdy, and the tarp and canvas around them appears as though it would hold up well. Already I slid it off a concrete boat ramp, skidded to a stop in very shallow water on top of rocks, landed it on big rocks to get out, and even went over a couple sticks and logs. Does not seem any worse for the wear, and I am quite confident it can handle quite a bit.
The only thing I dislike about it, is that despite the amount of air I pump into it, then canvas top and tarp bottom do not get any tighter than what it appears in the picture. But it was also 60 degrees or less all the times I took it out, and I cant say that a warm day in the sun wouldn't expand it enough to tighten it up. Also it would be nice to have a big 'ole duffel bag or something to transport this with.
All in all, I'd say that if you are looking for an inflatable and you are a big person or look to carry a lot of stuff, this was a good deal that I am not disappointed with.
