capacity sit on top kayakCapacity of the sit on kayak

The cheaper the less capacity is the average trend. Around this price class the capacity is about 225 pounds on average. Which is fine if you are slightly build or if you are buying this for your kids. Most adults prefer a little bit better capacity though. The kayak will be less deep in the water which makes the paddling lighter. And if a motorized boat passes you have a little more boat between you and the waves.

Why buy a sit on top kayakReason for buying a sit on top kayak under 300 dollar.

It all depends on what you want with the kayak. If all you need is a kayak to play around the water or a kayak for kids the cheaper ones will do perfectly fine. If you want to make long distance trips I think a bit more comfort and especially a bit more streamlining of your kayak to make some more speed will be very welcome.
