Positive Customer Reviews

Paddles fast, tracks like an arrow. Great for fishing or river running. I’ve used it well over 20 times and it performs like new.
— S.N.

I can’t say a single bad thing about this great kayak. It’s absolutely perfect for use on a lake. We use ours every weekend. Very convenience compared to hard shells.
— M.A.

This is a great kayak for a beginner. Tracks way better than I would have thought for an inflatable. Comfortable and easy to inflate.
— A.L.

Negative Customer Comments

My only problem with these inflatables is that you must let them dry out completely before packing away. This can be time consuming.  I usually end up throwing in the trunk wet then laying it out at home to dry before finally packing it away in the bag
— T.C.

It’s lighter than a hard shell boat but still heavier than I thought. If you need to carry it a long distance keep this in mind.
— J.M.
