Great kayak, not the most comfortable

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
True to size

I bought this from another retailer, but since there are pretty much no reviews out there, I thought this might be helpful. I took my Moki 1 out this weekend to Black Canyon Reservoir in Idaho, a wide, slow part of the Payette River. There was enough of a current that paddling upstream took a lot out of me, but the kayak performed well. Tracking is not as solid as a hardshell (I'm coming from a Wilderness Systems Aspire 105), but it's good enough that the nose doesn't wander with every paddle stroke. I did use the tracking fin, which helped, though it's long enough that I got stuck on a few shallow silt bars. The pros: good tracking, excellent portability, tough materials, fairly quick setup. There's only one major con that I found: comfort. I'm 5' 10", about 250 pounds (I got a kayak again to help burn off the Corona-fat!). It's not a bad fit around my hips, but the kayak narrows so quickly that my feet are pretty much hitting each other, and you don't have a lot of room to move. The seat is mostly fine, but without room to move around, you can't avoid hotspots. If this was geared more towards whitewater the narrow seat would make sense, but not with it being a "recreational" kayak. It has a 500 lb max capacity. Even if I loaded this thing down for a long river run, I'd only have around 300 lbs. I think it might be worth it for Kokopelli to look at reducing the pontoon volume a little, and adding a couple more inches to the interior width. That being said, the pros outweigh the cons. I wanted an inflatable solid enough that I wouldn't be worried about punctures, and this is built like a standard river raft. It's not light, but I prefer toughness over weight (I'm not packing this anywhere). Lots of D-rings inside to attach gear, and I think I could probably fit at least 40 liters worth of stuff inside, not to mention what I could attach to the rigging. The addition of the deck and spray skirts are great, the deck skirt kept the water off me (it was a cooler, windier day when I went). I would recommend a foot or powered pump to get out on the water faster. The double action pump is fine, but it takes a bit more time to get everything inflated. It's also fairly wide; I use a 240mm Werner Camano paddle, and it's just enough that I don't have to use a high-angle stroke. I can't really speak to speed, but it's probably just as quick on the water as a 12' WS Pungo. Very stable because of the flat bottom, so it'd be hard to flip this thing unless you really tried. All told, this is a great kayak if you don't have the capability to transport a hardshell to the water.
