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 through a massive desert canyon or down snowmelt-fed mountain rivers, the Aire Outfitter I Inflatable Kayak is the one-person machine for you. Large tube diameters and a low seating position give this boat a tough-to-flip feel beginner paddlers will appreciate. A rockered bow and a fairly flat bottom give you the on-water maneuverability 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 Tucker won't wobble with every tail wag, making for a fabulous and stable day of paddling.Made from PVC with welded seams, the body of this boat won't be easily battered and bruised if you've chosen to brave some burly whitewater. By combining both urethane Airecells, PVC fabric, and a self-bailing floor, Aire has made the Outfitter I more than ready for big whitewater trips and mellow floats alike. The easy-to-use Leafield B7 valves ensure easy inflating and deflating both on the ramp or back at the shop. The included 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 functional as the front. Twelve cargo loops let you take gear for whatever water-bound adventure you've planned, and the two conveniently placed carry handles at the bow and stern make launching and portaging much easier.
