Comments about West Marine Saba 9.5 Sit-Inside Kayak, Yellow/Orange:

This is a great kayak for access to the water. Tracks surprisingly well for such a small boat. Very easy to cary and load. I have a compact pickup and don't even have to put it on the roof. I work as a professional photographer and often need nimble access to the water. After having sold 3 previous kayaks I decided to purchase a more compact model when the need arises. I'm really happy with this purchase.

Kayak doesn't have storage compartment but bought it as a second kayak and didn't need any other storage. Great beginner level kayak - lightweight for each carrying.

      Comments about West Marine Saba 9.5 Sit-Inside Kayak, Yellow/Orange:

      Fantastic light-weight kayak. Does very well on
      smooth water and up to #2 rapids. This is a very well built kayak and the padded around the entry was an added bonus.
