I've had my Native Ultimate 12 for over a year and have enjoyed it so much I went back and bought the Tegris model for those hard to reach spots and portaging long distances. I can't say anything bad about them,
love it, and they're made just down the road in Greensboro, NC.
PS The Tegris weighs 29 lbs/ 36 lbs. with/ without the seat and I can still stand up in it!
