Question

How strict are weight limitations on kayaks?

This kayak has a weight limitation listed as 250 lbs. I weigh considerably more than that, but rented a kayak this weekend that also had a 250 lb limitation and had no trouble with it. Is there any leeway?

Also, many reviews refer to kids and grandchildren enjoying this kayak. Is it suitable for adults?

I would compare the composition of the one you used to the one they display in Walmart. If they're similar then it will probably support you, tell them you want to try it on for size. They can't refuse you, then you'll get a good look at it. Those weight limits are always way under the load breaking point. Online Walmart does have a model that has a 300lb limit. maybe you'd feel more confident buying that one.

My guess would be yes there is enough leg room. But I'm guessing because I'm 7inches shorter than you. Of course there has to be a leg length limit but it also depends how big your backside is too. I believe the weight limit is 250lb.s However there is lots of gut room. I'm sure if you insist the friendly people at Walmart will take it down so you can try it on for size. If I was 6'1" I definitely would do that.

The only functional issue I had was that the paddle should have been longer. If it were longer, the paddle wouldn't have to be raised as high so less water would run down it. The supplied paddle is 84. I'd opt for 96.
