Over Thanksgiving, I purchased 5 kayaks from another store.....actually, two different stores! On the way home, I passed the Lifetime store and saw they were a lot cheaper. I went into the store and purchased 5 of your kayaks.......then spent another hour returning the first ones I bought. We actually put two different kayaks in the pool and tried them out. The Lotus handles extremely well and the price was great. Thanks Lifetime!

We bought a Lotus and an fishing kayak- both sit-on-tops. We LOVE them! They're light to carry to the water. They float and maneuver well and are very stable. In fact, they're so stable we put our 35lb shepherd on with us and she jumps from one to another as we paddle along without problem or tipping us over. They store easily too. I wish there was a better way to transport them as I have to take my window props off on my shell to carry them in the back of my truck. Still, not to big of a deal and well worth the fun we've had on ours. They have done well on large lakes and in rivers with mild rapids. They are well worth the price we paid for them and I think they are much more durable than some of the more expensive kayaks we looked at before purchasing these.

We bought this for our teenager, and also bought a larger one for my husband but my husband actually likes this one better. The stabilility is amazing on it. My teenage son can actually use it like a paddle board down the river without it flipping. It's light enough To pack but heavy enough for it to last a lifetime! I've yet to be disappointed in any lifetime product I've owned! Great kyak for a great price!

I bought the 8 foot blue Lotus and one of lifetime's bright green Tamarack 10 footers (the 10 footer because I am taller and heavier). My family enjoyed both Kayaks, but were suprised at how well the 8 footer preformed. It appeared as stable as the 10 footer. As a result, I bought two more 8 footers so more of my family could enjoy them at the same time. The kids used them constantly at the lake this summer. And think of the gas I saved over running the wave runners as much. Good exercise also! My only recommendation to Lifetime would be to add a carrying handle to the back of the 8 footer like on the 10 footer.

I bought this Kayak to add to our growing fleet of Lifetime Kayaks (this is number 3). We needed a kayak for my wife to use when we took kids to the lake. This kayak is perfect. It is very stable even when waves from boats catch you off guard. It is very light and easy to put on top of the van or even inside the van. I have had my kids paddle this kayak and it is easy to control. The kayak has ample space behind the seat to fit a small cooler or a fishing crate. We have also put a couple kids on this when paddling around the lake it felt very safe.

This boat is sturdy, easy to use and well balanced. It is simple to get on and off of while in the water, which makes it a decent swim platform, as well as boat. The width (which is the reason it is so well balanced) does slow it down a bit. If you want a boat to race, this is not the one. However, if you want something that is reliable, easy to paddle for hours and light enough to toss in the back of the truck, this is exactly the boat you need.

This kayak was a little heavier then I expected, without a handle at the back it was slippery to carry.any distance. Very stable, when with other 8 foot kayaks whoever is on this one will be lagging behind. It doesnt go through the water as fast as the other ones that are more streamline in their design. If you are not going far or not with other different kayaks then its great. I even tried standing on it and i was abl to. Its a beautiful color and came with a really nice paddle. I now have a different sit on kayak that goes through the water as fast as the sit on kayak. The sit on kayak Is my favourite. Your not confined and it has a more free and rustic feel. Better for sun tanning and little passengers. So if you have help getting it to the water or your a guy, dont mind putting some extra effort into paddeling it, the sit ON kayak is fantastic.

I have 4 kayaks and 2 paddle boards. Simple and fun entertainment. Easy to transport. Light in weight. We have had more fun as a family the last 2 summers than many before. It had brought family and friends together to enjoy a great day at the lake in the sun. They are durable and built tough. They have been dropped and dragged with no damage. We love them and can't wait till summer rolls around again. Thanks for the amazing memories Lifetime!!!

Perfect Small Kayak

It is small, reasonably light, fun in the water, and it still float with me, my wife, and my dog on it at the same time! (even tho it was quite squished). The only thing I didn't like is trying to carry it for long distances. There isn't really a great way to carry it. So I would just hold it over my head, but that means the kayak is pretty much the only thing I could carry. Besides that, it is awesome.

Got this with another bigger emotion kayak from lifetime as an anniversary gift. I really have love how easy it is to steer and use. It's light enough that I can pack it and load it on the car. It is really stable ( held two laughing 8 year olds without tipping). It has held up really well and is almost a year old and the color is still bright (no sun fading) and the back rest looks new. I would definitely recommend getting one of these!

I bought 2 kayaks. They work great in the water. I would suggest better grips for carrying. It is small enough for 1 person to carry however there are no good grips in the mold so it makes it difficult for 1 person to carry. It would also be nice if the paddles snapped into the mold. We have to carry them quit a distance to get to the water and these simple modification to the shape of the kayak would make carry alot easier.

In 2012 we purchased our first sit-on-top kayak from Lifetime. My wife, who was afraid of all kayaks loved it because she did not feel trapped, and it is so easy to use. The next year we bought another, and the following year we bought 2 more. They are durable, lightweight, and everyone who comes to our lake house falls in love with them.

I owned one of these kayaks last year, (purchased mail order from U.S.A. with duty and shipping costs), unfortunately it was stolen. I was very much surprised to be able to purchase a replacement in Canada at, with no duty and no shipping fees. I loved the practicality of owning an 8' kayak as it fits inside my SUV, so easier to handle and launch. I carry it everywhere, just in case I find a great spot to have a paddle. Handles very well and is easy for me to manage, as I have some physical limitations and want to be independent and spontaneous. The biggest surprise of all was that it was at my doorstep within 10 days of ordering, well ahead of the promised by date.
