Familiarity: I've used it several times

We've used our friend's Aire Forces before buying our own, on the advise that they're about as close to a hard shell as you're going to get without putting on a skirt and learning to roll. We've found them to be really maneuverable, yet surprisingly stable in whitewater, easily adjustable for size, and it comes with thigh straps to keep you in the boat and to make the boat react to your body, not just your paddle. We've taken this and our friends Aire Forces down the Trinity, Rogue and Klamath rivers.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought this for my inaugural trip up a mountain. Used it for snow school and for a trip with my sons up Mount Shasta. Luckily other than caning with it, the only use it got was in us throwing ourselves down the hill and practicing our self-arrest, which, as I would expect, it did quite well. As for durability, I noticed the local outfitter in Mt. Shasta rents the Raven, and those look like they've been put through the wringer and are still going strong.
