Unlike that ton-of-bricks you call a computer, the Oru Kayak Bay ST Kayak touts a round of updates that won't crash-and-burn when it comes to assembly. Instead of utilizing ratchet buckles (as the former edition was equipped with), the Bay ST now features an easy-to-use seam cover (also known as a zipper closure), which slips over the middle seam, ensuring a waterproof seal and an easier assembly than before. Additionally, the Bay ST now has a more roomy cockpit and more amenable backrest, offering a more customizable fit and comfortable paddling experience.
Though, much like the original Bay series, the Bay ST is constructed a durable and rigid, double-wall polypropylene material that's built to withstand 20,000 folds. The polypropylene is also fashioned with a 10 year UV treatment to further the overall longevity of the kayak. Neoprene sleeves at the bow and stern bolster the Bay ST's waterproof construction, and also double as handles, making it easy to carry the Bay ST from the shore to the water. A 1.5in rocker makes for fast travel and quick turns, while the convex and concave curves assure a more rigid feel that caters to novice paddlers or experienced kayakers alike.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been using the bay almost every weekend for two months now and am VERY happy with this product. I researched the heck out of it before buying. The ONLY down side is that in rough water, and only in rough water, it can jerk because of the sharp angles of the kayak. I mean the kind of waves that come in the kayak. I found if I relax with the waters motion it fixes that. This happened twice spending two full days on rough waves. This is so minor compared to the benefits of this kayak. You don't have to worry about storage, loading, buying racks or trailers, and the assembly can be done in five to ten minutes! Then it's just you and the water. It is so light it doesn't require much effort to go FAST for a long time. It feels like you are only paddling your own weight and nothing else. It's so light you can go in extremely shallow areas. The manuverability is ace in creeks or tight spots. My husband is 6ft (1.8 m) and loves his Bay too. The design of it is just genius. Be prepared to draw a crowd when assembling because this has happened every time.
