Bought my wife an Inuvik for her birthday and let me say what a nice kayak. Boat is very stable, has a large open cockpit which makes it easy to get in and out of and also allows my wife who can't sit still able room to move around and stretch her legs. Boat glides across the water and tracks very well. Plenty of room and a storage compartment to allow for a few days worth of gear.
I personally own a Perception 14' Carolina and as much as I love that boat I have to say that I may like the Inuvik a little bit better. Highly recommended if you're looking for a quality kayak but don't want to break the bank.

This kayak is a single body construction (no seam, 1 piece!) which means there is nowhere for it to leak or wear out over the years. It is a flexible plastic which will allow it to last many years as well. I found it to be very stable, even in rough waters with my Australian Shepherd aboard. He and and I go for hours on end on the lakes and he loves the comfortable room.
The foot pegs are in a great spot and the inflatable lumbar support is fantastic. The dry storage at the back seemed to take a bit of water, but a dry bag sorts all that out. It is also likely not the boats fault as I was in 1 meter swells and couldn't always keep the hull above the wake.
Great kayak! 10 out of 10! oh....and Canadian made!
