Here's what other sites are saying:

Tour the coast and explore rocky, coastal islands from inside the roomy cockpit of the Necky Kayaks Looksha 12 Kayak. Shorter and wider than most traditional day-touring boats, this kayak offers increased maneuverability for tight coves and rock-solid secondary stability for conquering rough conditions. Streamlined hull lines keep you moving quickly and efficiently across open water, and highly adjustable seating provides the sort of comfort you'd expect from the couch in your living room--sounds like quite the life, doesn't it'

Necky Looksha 12 Kayak Package - This kayak is compact yet features everything you need for longer paddling adventures. The smallest this popular series, the Looksha 12 has great edge control with a smooth transition between primary and secondary stability. The porpoise bow handles rough conditions with ease, and ample volume enables the boat to slice through the water without diving. The large roomy cockpit combined with the Extrasport seating system offer an extremely comfortable ride. Adjustable Comfort Fit foam thigh braces increase edging performance while providing ultimate comfort. Bow and stern compartments are sealed with expedition bulkheads, creating dry storage for safety and storage. The large Cross Lock hatches are easy to open and simple to securely close. Ergonomic carry handles offer a better grip for transportation to and from the water. The compact size and excellent maneuverability make the Looksha 12 a fun choice for coastal exploration and inland touring.

Quality features and high maneuverability will have you taking the Necky Looksha 12(TM) kayak to the water anytime you can, and thinking about it when you can't. Tough and affordable Polylite(TM) polyethylene hull provides long-lasting wear and resists UV degradation; molded-in graphics won't peel or fade. Multi-edged hull design has excellent edge control and provides excellent stability. New for 2010, the Active Comfort System (ACS) seat offers a convenient and intuitive adjustment system. Orange pull straps provide 4 separate adjustments: backrest tilt, backrest height, lumbar support and thigh support. Lateral stabilizers lock the seat into the boat to maximize responsiveness; finger channels on the seating surface enhance airflow and drainage. ACS seat base uses a tri-laminate construction that's similar to a running shoe, providing support where you need it and softness where you want it. Comfort Fit(TM) thigh braces further enhance responsiveness and control. Adjustable foot pedals accommodate paddlers of differing heights. Fully bulkheaded bow and stern hatches with flush-mount hatch covers provide generous dry cargo storage for extended voyages. Cross-Lock(TM) System on hatches secures cover with quick and easy entry; inner neoprene covers offer extra water protection. Reflective safety perimeter lines enhance visibility and aid in re-entry after a wet exit. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern secure extra gear on board; toggle carry handles offer convenient transport to and from the water.
