Seating system

We know that a kayak without a seat is not worth it and uncomfortable to all of us. There are many seatless kayaks in the world. They should include seats in their kayaks. But the Lifetime Payette has a great and very comfortable seating system.

Actually, its seat and backrest have no padded seat cushions. But its shape and dimensions are very comfortable to seating.


Storage and capacity.

This kayak also has a good storage system. Because this product has two great storage. It has a big storage with coverage and there is no bungee cord. But the other is bungee cord storage and this storage is protected by the bungee cord. 

So overall these storage are good enough for a water trip. Its capacity is also good enough. Because it can carry 113.39 kg and that means its capacity is 250 pounds. So we believe that this capacity is ideal for a one-person kayak.

This item is constructed of UV-protected high-density polyethylene or we can call it (HDPE). This material is a thermoplastic polymer produced from the monomer ethylene.
