The looksha 12Si is described as a shorter narrower hull than the regular 12 version, but the dimensions except for the 2 inch shorter cockpit is the same for both. What's the real physical difference? I jhave never seen the SI version in person, I need to know this.

Why are you not offering the option of a Skeg for the Looksha 12 or 12 Si ? We do not want to buy a rudder system for 300 dollars.

John, this is a very nice kayak but to be honest I would not purchase it without at least sitting in the cockpit (or one of similar size) to make sure you have enough room.

Received damaged, no compensation.

Unfortunately, I was not home to receive the kayak, so it was left with my husband who signed for it without unwrapping it. It looked fine when it was wrapped in the shipping material. When I unwrapped it however, it had large areas of black spots (discoloration on a red kayak))that do not wash off. Also two scratches-one is quite deep and about 2 inched long. Unfortunately, its my problem-since it was not discovered before the delivery man left. The damage appears to have been done before it was wrapped. I will sand the shredded poly off and fill the deep scratch with some sort of resin. This aside-I am pleased with detail of the kayak and can't wait to try it out in the spring. I also bought a Kokatat Gore-Tex Deluxe Sea skirt, but it doesn't fit the cockpit, which is 16.75" x 34". I ordered a medium which should fit up to 18.5" x 34". I've determined that this is because the kayak seatback extends several inches above the cockpit. I will exchange the medium sea skirt for a large and hope it will work.

Did you talk to Backcountry about returning it? In my experience they have been extremely understanding and helpful when it comes to returning items that are damaged or that I'm just not happy with even after a decent amount of time has passed. I'd be very surprised to hear they turned you down. To quote their return policy..."Not stoked on your gear? Looking to return it or make an exchange? No problem, we have an Unlimited Return Policy: we guarantee complete satisfaction and an unlimited lifetime warranty. If at any time -- now, next month, in 30 years -- you're not 100% satisfied, send your gear back for a full refund. No questions asked."
