This kayak is bomb proof! My Fire Department Swift…

Summary

This kayak is bomb proof!

Pros

  • Strength
  • Durability

Cons

  • Absolutely not one con!

My Fire Department Swift Water Rescue Team is equipped with four of these inflatable kayaks. We keep two of them inflated and ready to go at a moment's notice and the other two are stored in bags on the second water rescue truck.

They are used, abused but they keep right on keeping on. We take them out at least once a week 52 weeks of the year and have had them in service for over two years now with only one minor puncture wound — and that came as a result of us participating in an REI river cleanup hauling all sorts of glass and other detritus out of the river. I had that little hole repaired with the included patch kit in short order.  

If these things can take the continual beating we lay on them then they should be overkill for the average weekend warrior who gets out three or four times per year!

NRS MaverIK II Inflatable Kayak - The MaverIK II kayak features the legendary performance and durability of the MaverIK I, but with room for two paddlers. You can also paddle it solo for extra cargo space and stability. This inflatable kayak tracks well and responds quickly, leaving the paddlers feeling comfortable and at ease when boating. The symmetrical design is made to play, making the Maverik very stable in fast moving water and rapids on the river.

Great for family trips, it rolls up small enough to easily stow in the trunk of a car and is quickly inflated with a standard river pump. The NRS MaverIK II will be an instant favorite and one that will last for years and years.
