The Chelan HB One is constructed with four molded carrying handles
(bow, stern and both sides) can very easily be carried by hooking the side of the kayak over your shoulder.
Two splash guards – front and rear – extend partly over the seating well and help prevent water from splashing in.
Each has a bungee deck-lacing system for attaching gear. Each deck extends over the seating well with raised visor; the front bungee deck extends 37 inches with lacing 23 inches long by 14 inches wide tapering to 3 inches; this begins 14 inches from the bow. The rear deck extends 27 inches with lacing measuring 22 inches long by 14 inches wide tapering to 3 inches; this begins 14.5 inches from the stern. Each bungee deck lacing has five sets of cloth loops. There is one cloth d-ring bow and stern, which can be used to attach the optional spray deck, or for attaching gear.
Four upper plastic d-rings
Used to attach the seats as well as gear, and two cloth d-rings each side of the outer hull along the rub guard – also for the optional deck or attaching more gear. The upper d-rings are located 67 inches from the bow cone (on the handle) and then 30 inches back from the first set.
The cloth d-rings are located 60 and 82 inches from the bow.
There are three military valves
For the floor and side chambers, and one twistlock for the seat base.
The padded, inflatable Pro-Formance seat
Features adjustable side straps which quickly clip into position. The straps can be adjusted up to 15 inches. The seat bases are 16 inches wide by 16 inches deep and can be inflated up to 5 inches, dependent on your comfort level. Two mesh pockets and two side d-rings are found on the front of the seat base, as well as a velcro strip for attaching an optional cup holder.
The Seat Back
Equipped with 2 fishing rod holders, one d-ring on each side and a deep mesh storage pocket (measuring 5 x 8 x 9 inches) for gear. The backs are 12 inches tall in a 1-inch thick padded foam with “breathable” mesh, encircling 26-inches wide. A velcro tab locks the twist-lok into position so it doesn’t accidentally “get bumped” while paddling.
The floor is constructed from a 6 PSI high-pressure, drop-stitch material
Designed as “raised seating,” creating four 3.5 inch deep side-well cutouts that collect any water splashing inside; each side-well has a drain plug (not to be confused with self-bailing) which can be opened to let water out.
Two 44-inch velcro strips
Centered on the floor three inches apart, and are used to position the seats and foot braces.
The foot braces are padded
10 x 3 inches long – with extending strips 8 inches in length.
The kayak body features tubeless side chambers constructed from 1000 denier 850 GSM Duratex reinforced PVC with a smooth finish.
The hull is a rugged, puncture-resistant 500 denier 600G Duratex reinforced PVC with removable tracking fin and landing plate.
The tracking fin is hefty
Measuring 5.5 x 12 inches with locking pin.
The bow and stern feature a rugged “molded” snout.

I'm a first time Kayaker. I've never used a plastic Kayak. So this is my introduction into the sport. Buy this Kayak. You won't be sorry.
I Gave it five stars across-the-board. Let me just add this comment so I give the best overview of this product. I am a women who is 5’3 and 155 pounds, I am a novice at kayaking or at least I was prior to 4 days of kayaking morning and afternoon in sun and rain. This kayak works perfect for me I can carry it by myself and can inflate it up by myself.
To say I am pleasantly surprised at how good this little kayak is would be an understatement. I absolutely love it.
The kayak goes through the water pretty well and is stable within reason. Wouldn't try it in white water but great for slow rivers or lakes.
