Very helpful. The owner called me direct when I emailed a question to him about wanting another part (which I damaged trying to self modify it). He even offered to sent it to me at no cost. Easy to install and the youtube videos help. And lastly it awesome not having the strings in the front so you are open to cast or deal with larger fish etc. with no miss in the way. Love the canopy.

I mounted it on my sons Old Town Predator 13 and he loves it. It keeps the sun off of him and cool. Easy to install and well made. Would recommend one to anyone. I have one on my own kayak. It is Ocean Kayak Prowler Big Game II. The folks at Adventure Canopies very helpful and great to work with.

Easy install, nice design, quick service, had everything I needed in the box. Works perfectly with my Jackson Liska. May be buying another one soon for another kayak.

I love this canopy. It’s easy to put up and to take it down. It also stays out of the way so I can easily cast my line. Additionally, I have received lots of comments from other kayakers asking me where I got it.

I am beyond thrilled with this canopy. I was looking for something with good coverage that would not obstruct my view while kayaking and this was the perfect solution. I installed it with no trouble after reading the included instructions and watching the video. I am very excited to have this, as it will allow me to stay out longer in the Texas heat!
