    • A. Unfortunately there are no places to attach bungee cords. The kayak is one solid piece of plastic. The only holes are the drain plugs and the holes for the carry straps at the front and back. I plan to drill a hole to be able to attach a lock. I also attached a water-proof plastic container inside with gorilla tape to hold phone, keys, etc.

    We bought two kayaks, this 8' one for my wife (5' 2") thinking the shorter one would be better and I got the WaterQuest Aruba 10' Kayak for myself (5' 11") The 8' has no footpegs and no seat back, its also much taller, so the combination of these 3 things makes it very unstable. This flips over and wobbles too easily and since its taller, its top heavy and its uncomfortable to paddle with as you have to raise your arms too high. With the adjustable foot pegs on the 10' that we got, she can use this one fine, no problems. I would stay away from this one, its the cheapest for a reason

    Walmart went above and beyond to get my kayak to me sending it UPS freight in a big transport! It came with a paddle that I wasn't expecting. I'm female, 5'3" and I was able to carry it at least 200 feet to the water. The construction is sturdy, plastic seems thick. If a person is quite overweight, then shifting around might be an issue. I read the only other review and don't agree. The kayak was easy to keep straight, I went straight as an arrow. When I first got into it, the first 20 seconds I wasn't sure how stable it was, but I was also shifting around. It fits in my my car (hatchback-with seats down) and sticks out a smidge. It has enabled me to get to lakes and enjoy nature. This morning I was out on the lake bright and early and it was pure heaven! I've had canoeing experience, but this was my first time out in a kayak. It's solid, Not tippy Well Constructed Easy to carry if you put it on one shoulder and find a hand position on the inside. (I'm getting a little sponge for my shoulder though. Just to make it even better. (pictures to come)

    Great Little Boat

    Customer review by oldhermit

    5.0 stars 4/27/2012 by oldhermit
    by oldhermit

    This is my first kayak, so I have no real comparison. I have paddled canoes and inflatables. I want everyone to know this is a very very basic kayak no dry storage, foot braces, or even deck bungee, or padded seats for those creature comforts except the foot braces you need to look for the cayman ss same boat but with extras. What attracted me to this one was 27 lbs and the length of 8'. My intended purpose was to be able to carry it to my fishing holes that are a good walk and include some steep hills, and this little boat was perfect for that. Now for my experience with it. Despite its short length there is a surprising amount of leg room I am 5'7" and can stretch my legs out even with my tackle box in front of my feet it is about as stable as a canoe this is the first kayak I have ever been in and have had it out 4 times so far and caught several fish out of it and never felt like it would tip. There is a small keel running the length of it and it seems to work very well the first time i was in it there was some wag but as my paddle technique is improving it is becoming much easier to keep straight. I can get it to move along at a pretty good clip fast enough for it to push water and make a small wake and it will glide for a good distance. In conclusion I'm sure there are vastly Superior kayaks on the market but at this price range the WQ Cayman is hard to beat I recomend it highly. I will be adding a few things a deck kit, an anchor cleat, and a couple of flush mount rod holders, and some cushioning tor the seat, but I am very happy with it.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Very inexpensive price, especially including a paddle for $200. We bought two. The Kayaks are fairly well built and comfortable. However, my wife and I both found them to be too "tipsy". I own six other kayaks, and have extensive experience in many types and sizes of kayaks. We were looking for a pair of very short kayaks that would fit inside of our van and on our motorboat. I found that the "initial stability" of this kayak to be "poor", and unfortunately, it's secondary stability was also "poor". This kayak "tracks" and paddles well for its size. I weigh 180 pounds. It may be suitable for a smaller person, or someone who doesn't mind "tipsy". We returned our 2 kayaks to Walmart for a refund. The customer service staff was pleasant and attempted to be helpful, but the process was long and difficult because of the inability of the staff to get the computer to accept the return. Finally a senior manager had to use his executive "powers" to refund our money. It took about 45 minutes. There were many frustrated people in the line behind us.

    I was pleasantly surprised when the kayak arrived and included a paddle. The paddle was actually nicer than the one that I had ordered separately. The size and weight of this kayak are ideal for an individual to handle. I was able to lift it and put it on top of my car without any problems. There is plenty of room in the cockpit for a dry bag, the paddlers legs, and probably fishing gear. The seat is also comfortable. I would have like it if the kayak had been just a little more stable but I can fix that and have the perfect boat for my area.
