Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb kayak! The Delta 12.10 is light, glides well, comfortable, and is a joy to paddle. This is my first Delta and I am very impressed with their quality. Since I couldn’t see it in person before purchase, I was concerned about the seat, but that was all for not since it’s highly adjustable and very comfortable. The fore and aft hatches are quite large and the day hatch is much larger than I was expecting and easy to open. There is a metal locking point just behind the seat that isn't shown in the picture. It's great for locking down the boat if needed. I look forward to many days on the water and I highly recommend this kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really beautiful I just got this kayak as a birthday gift, it is the first kayak that I have owned. It arrived (shipped to my house) in perfect condition as far as I can tell, and it is beautiful. The colour (red) is very bright and the finish is shiny, it looks much nicer than a rotomolded PE boat to my eye. I would recommend opening the hatches for the first time in a well ventilated area, because it smells very strongly of epoxy when you open them, but once they aired out I haven't noticed anything. The deck lines are all in recessed ridges in the deck with handy dents so you can get a finger under them. All of the bolts appear to have rubber gaskets on the inside of the boat to limit leakage when you have water on the deck. The carry handles are comfortable and sturdy, at least for the short trek from the parking lot to the water near my house. All that to say, the fit and finish is exceptional, I had heard good things and I wasn't disappointed in the least. As far as paddling it, my point of comparison was some sit on top boats that I had borrowed from friends, and this is a lot more fun. I don't know if it is faster, because I haven't raced anyone yet, but it feels a lot quicker, the acceleration is light and it goes more or less in a straight line, even with a few inches of chop. In smooth water at a gentle pace the hull is nearly silent, quiet enough that I could sneak up on a bird eating a fish on the beach and get pretty close, so if that's what you want to do, you should be happy, I guess. The seat is pretty comfortable, I spent about 3 hours in it today and my butt and lower back are not doing too badly, and it is easy to adjust, the mechanism is simple and should be durable, and it adjusts in front of you (at least leaning forward and back, not the height adjust) which is convenient. My favorite adjustment, however, is that the whole seat slides forward or back into maybe 5 different positions. This allows me to get my thighs inside the padded thigh braces without slouching, I'm not very tall (~5'9") and was able to get a good fit. The foot braces are also adjustable and seem pretty sturdy, plus the platforms are comfortable enough for bare feet. The boat feels stable and gives me confidence to edge a little. I was in paddling in pretty flat water, but when I got the wake from speed boats passing by, the 12.10 did just fine, no matter which direction the swells hit, it stayed collected even though I am a total novice. The hatches appear to be mostly water tight, I would still put my stuff in dry sacks if I was going on a trip, but my phone (in a waterproof case) did fine in the day hatch, though after a few hours of practicing rolls (unsuccessfully) and reentries (hilarious, but successful) there were small puddles in the larger hatches. Overall, I am totally in love with this thing, it is a lot of fun and it has given me a lot of confidence. I am having a blast and have ordered a Delta 12.5 catfish sit on top for my wife (I had to special order it because REI doesn't stock them at the moment, so it isn't here yet, but based on this one I am really excited)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's nothing like a Delta ... A Delta kayak will cost you more than a rotomolded polyethylene boat and it's well worth it. The thermoformed ABS material that Delta uses produces a gorgeous finish that looks and performs like a composite boat, but costs less and is more durable. The 12.10 is essentially a sea kayak in a smaller package that is well suited to light touring (up to 3 days or so) on large lakes, slow moving rivers and coastal waters. It also performs well in ocean swells and in the surf. If you're looking for a whitewater kayak or a boat for extended touring, however, look elsewhere. The 12.10 is a light, fast little boat that is very stable, tracks and edges well, and turns on a dime. Fit and finish are top notch. As with it's larger models, Delta cut no corners on the 12.10 - everything from the seating system to the hatches to the bulkheads to the deck rigging and the perimeter lines exude quality and performance. You will also feel very safe in this boat. Simply put, nothing in its class even comes close. Spend the extra $400-$500 that this kayak will cost you. I guarantee that you'll be glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boat I've owned this boat for 2 years and paddled many miles in it. The build quality is excellent. Tracks very well. Hatches don't leak. I have nothing bad to report. It's worth the money.
