AIRE Outfitter I Inflatable Kayak - The Outfitter I inflatable kayak from AIRE is a river runner designed to be stable and forgiving in whitewater. With large tube diameters and a low seat position, your center of gravity is lowered, giving you incredible stability in whitewater. The shorter length of the Outfitter offsets the tube diameter so the kayak still feels nimble. No other kayak on the market offers such a combination of stability and control. A heavy-duty PVC outer shell provides superior durability, and airtight internal bladders provide an extra measure of strength and safety. The adjustable Cheetah seat features a stiff backrest with a large storage pocket and bottle holder and easy clip in points. It can also double as a comfy camp chair. With a roomy interior and multiple tie-down loops, there's plenty of room for gear on self-support trips. At the end of the day, roll the Outfitter up and stow it your trunk or closet. The AIRE Outfitter I inflatable kayak gives confidence to whitewater kayaking novices just learning to paddle, and to experts in extreme water.
Whether you're rafting down the Grand Canyon or running a fairly mellow river, the Aire Outfitter I Inflatable Kayak is the one-man machine for you. Large tubes and a low seating position means you've the potential to be super-stable in the water. Ends in the air and a fairly flat bottom give you on-water flexibility that lets you ride rapids and speed across the flats. Even if your 80-pound yellow lab manages to hop on board at the last minute, you and Senor Pooch-face won't wobble with every tag wail for a fabulous day of paddling. Made from PVC with fully welded seams, the body of this boat won't be battered and bruised if you've chosen to brave some burly whitewater. The internal AireCell system keeps this boat floating. By combining buoyancy and PVC, the Outfitter is a stiff and responsive ride for fun from put-in to take out. Leafield B7 valves go one way and come with protective caps so you don't spring a leak in the middle of long whitewater run. The Cheetah Chair is set low in the boat and supports your back for all-day paddling comfort. A large storage pocket and water bottle holder make the back of the chair almost as fabulous as the front. Release your Cheetah from the boat for a soft seat on-shore. Twelve cargo loops let you take with ample gear for whatever water-bound adventure you've planned. Two carry handles give you the chance to flirt with the hottie at the put-in, and two sets of drain holes jettison excess water faster than you "get rid" of extra beer.
