I am 6'2" tall and weight about 250. I really like what I see online regarding the mirage drive but I am worried about the leg room in the kayak, the Outback looks a little cramped.
Hi Marty! I'm 6'-0" with a 36" inseam (long legs) and have no leg room issues. Matter of fact, the only time I've felt cramped is in a sit-in kayak. For the best all-around multi-purpose kayak, I highly recommend the Outback. Sitting high in the water will keep you dry. Moving through the water by pedals allows your hands to be freed up to talk on the phone, cast a fishing pole, take photos, spread on suntan lotion, etc. You can pedal it, paddle it, or sail it. You can pedal leisurely all day or you can take it out for an hour and get a real good workout. The Outback will handle 400 pounds. Don't constrain yourself to just paddling...when for about the same price, you can get a sailboat, an recumbent bicycle built for water, and a sit-on-top fishing boat.
