Rapid Up Sail

rated 4 of 5 stars When you are looking for that extra little push during a long day on the water the Advance Elements Rapid Up Sail provides. Having attached this to both a single and tandem kayak, the Rapid Up Sail can produce enjoyable speed with favorable winds. Living on the coast in SW FL, I am surrounded by water, so I spend a great deal of time paddling...both kayak and canoe. Over the years I have seen some pretty elaborate and expensive canoe/sail setups, even on kayaks...but that's not what I was looking… Full review

Touring 4-Part Paddle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a sturdy and reliable paddle that takes apart into four pieces, so it fits well into the bag of a folding or inflatable kayak. The price is good. I've used it for three years of recreational flatwater paddling. The Touring paddle has become my preferred paddle, after experience with plenty of two-piece paddles, and two other four-piece paddles. I've used it for over three years. I initially tried it because it is an Advanced Elements paddle, and I am a big fan of their folding inflatable… Full review

Ultralite Pack Paddle

rated 3 of 5 stars This is the most affordable kayak paddle I've found that can be taken apart into four parts. It is great for using with folding or inflatable kayaks, as it is packable and portable and weighs about 24 ounces. The slim metal shaft suits small hands. I have not used it for whitewater or challenging conditions. Kayakers need spare paddles. I chose two of these Ultralite Pack Paddles to go with the Lagoon inflatable kayak given to me a year and a half ago, by the manufacturer. One I keep as a lightweight… Full review

CargoPak

rated 5 of 5 stars The CargoPak is a tough drybag with good shoulder straps so it can be worn as a backpack. It is well made from tough materials and is still in great shape after a year. Not only kayakers and canoeists will use this drybag, but also hikers and campers in a rainy climate, or travelers carrying luggage. A brand-new CargoPak arrived from Advanced Elements for me at Christmas time 2015. Wow! And over a year later, it's still in good shape even after becoming my go-to pack for travelling. I've revised… Full review

AdvancedFrame Expedition Kayak

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the gold standard for inflatable folding kayaks. The Expedition is so portable I have taken it on airplanes as an ordinary checked bag. On the water, this recreational kayak handles well and has way more glide per stroke than the smaller models from the same manufacturer. The materials are tough and well-made. I am delighted with my Expedition. I have used it for more than four years and it is still going strong. The boat is very well-constructed of tough materials. The outer hull shows… Full review
