It comes with a cloth bag with string closure. Stores and transports better with a large backpack. Inflation valves take getting use to. Twist the red button in the center for one way inflation and twist the other way for rapid deflation. The foot rest and back support are easily inflated by mouth. Remember to position the removable fin prior to inflation. I have only launched and recovered from a dock. Entry and exit of the kayak is stable and easy. The boat rides nicely over boat wakes without taking on water. I like the handles at the bow and stern as well as on both inside beam areas. Great little boat.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
