Tough, stable, loads of room. There is a reason this one is popular for expeditions. It is heavy but you don't plan on carrying everywhere do you? This was my first kayak I wanted one I could use on lakes and rivers as well as the inside passage in Alaska. The initial stability is good and improves as you speed up.
Kayaks are a personal choice and everyone has their opinions. I bought this based on the overall opinion of the kodiak and have not been dissapointed.

The Prijon Kodiak Sea Kayak is designed to balance speed, carrying capacity, stability, and comfort. This Sea Kayak is fast and safe and has proven itself as one of the best expedition kayaks anywhere in the world. It has spacious storage and comfortable seating. It is an optimal kayak for long trips across lakes, seas and even oceans. It has been chosen by paddlers who have circumnavigated North America, traveled along the entire coasts of Norway and Siberia, and pioneered Greenland expeditions. It has a trihedral hull and convex waterlines similar to racing kayaks. The widest point of the boat is at the knees instead of the hips for excellent stability in rolling seas and most wind conditions. Features include an adjustable seat, thigh, and back brace, spacious storage compartments, bow and stern flotation bulkhead, and plastic and neoprene hatch covers. Rudder Ready.
Prijon Kodiak Sea Kayak Features:
Adjustable Back brace - Prijon adjustable back braces expand lower back support for
added comfort and powerful paddle strokes. The adjustable back brace can be fitted into place on the fly. You simply pull down on the adjusting cord and cinch down into the clam cleat before or during paddle trips.
Ergonomic Seats - All Prijon touring boats come with water bottle holders and some are adjustable. The depth of the seat and rise lowers your center of gravity and minimizes the amount of strain on your lower thigh.
Gas Pedal Foot braces - Prijon gas pedal foot braces provide, at all times, a solid foot platform for added paddling leverage and comfort. The gas pedal foot braces lock into the rails by pulling on a pin and then simply sliding on the rail. When the rudder is engaged the pedal is in a vertical position. The range of motion is 1” to 1.5”. The rudder blade moves by placing pressure on the top of the pedal. The motion of the pedal is similar to the gas pedal on your car.
Outfitting Kit - The provided seat and thigh foam can be placed anywhere your body makes contact with the boat. Just peel and stick.
Adjustable Thigh braces - Adjustable thigh braces provide maximum thigh and knee
control. This control allows the boat to react at your command and makes bracing and rolling easy. All Prijon touring kayaks include an Allen wrench tucked within the cockpit combing.
Hatches/Dry Storage - Prijon's flush hatches feature neoprene, hard plastic and quick-release webbing straps for the driest seal available. Sealed with bulkheads that provide flotation and plenty of gear storage.
Internal Deck Pack Nets - Inside the cockpit of some models, there are Deck Pack Nets for quick storage and accessibility to a variety of items.
Recessed Fittings - A nice touch coupled with stainless hardware that keeps wear-and -tear to a minimum.
