Don't blame you. They are pricy and not for everyone.
Just another option to the rigid kayaks and canoes.
They aren't difficult at all, however to get in and out of. My 81 year old father gets in and out easily. Very stable. I can stand to fish. They have chairs raising the seating position about 6" off of the deck. Additionally the seats have adjustable backs with tilt and the ability to dial in lumbar support. These seats, actually just might be the ticket for someone with a bad back.
I made the post to present an option to those wanting to pack kayaks but didn't want to give up all the space they typically require for transport.
