rated 5 of 5 stars Strong and long lasting canoe for two people to camp or a small family to cruise in. Very durable, but don't count on doing very well on any river that has more than class II rapids. This boat is great. It was a craiglist purchase in great condition. I think someone at Old Town actually told me it is the same boat as the Camper but just a different name from several years ago. I think they just started making two sizes of the Camper instead of keeping the Pathfinder name. Oh it is also less then… Full review

Tripper 172

rated 5 of 5 stars Most durable and long lasting canoe I have ever experienced or heard of. The Old Town Tripper after 40+ years of hard use and still going. Durability I grew up in this canoe. My dad purchased it before I was born. It is over 40 years old and has only been kept outside in the elements on the shores of Lake Superior. Harsh conditions to say the least (plenty of sun and sub zero temps). It has been run up on the cobblestone and bed rock basalt coasts all its life and yes the outer layer on one of the… Full review

Trip 10 Deluxe Angler

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent low-cost recreational kayak. This kayak is really nice for flat water and slow moving rivers. My wife and I are are new to kayaking and these were our first purchases. So far we have taken ours out on 16 trips in the past two months ranging from 90 min to our longest trip of 8 hours on the water, 2 miles to 14.88 miles. We have paddled in no wind to as high as about 15mph. It tracks reasonable straight and maneuvers pretty well. We kayak on flat water and slow moving rivers. The kayak… Full review

Next Canoe

rated 5 of 5 stars Great boat. It's not a canoe or kayak but a hybrid. Paddles like a kayak and carries gear like a canoe. Very comfortable seat. I've been looking for a kayak to purchase and came across the Next Canoe. Wow, I can't believe how it paddles. It paddles just like a good touring kayak and you can get up to full speed in about 3 strokes. This boat is very responsive as well. You can turn it on a dime and even paddle backwards almost as good as forwards.   Very stable in the water and although I haven't… Full review

Dirigo 106

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great rec kayak for lakes and slow rivers, capable of light overnight trips. Have had this kayak almost three years. I've dragged it, banged it, shot over ice and hit bottom more than a few times. Aside from a few scratches, the hull is perfectly intact.  It's easy to get in and out of, has a very comfortable and well adjustable seat, a fairly big water-tight hatch on the back (enough for a tent and sleeping gear), a little water-tight hatch on the dash for keys or a cellphone (I use this hatch… Full review
