This kayak holds two people and or 485 pounds. It deflates into its own backpack.
- The price was great. I bought it for around $600.
- It comes with everything you need, including a pump.
- It tracks pretty good because it has a removable keel.
- It is a drop-stitch design kayak and you put 8 psi into it.
- It takes a while to pump it up. I wish it had a better pump.
I bought this kayak from Costco last year to go fishing on the lakes. It came all folded up in a backpack. It took me a few tries to get it set up right, but once it was set up, it was great. I am 340 pounds and this kayak will carry me, my fishing equipment, and camping gear.
What I like about it is that when I am done with it, I just deflate it and store it away. I don't need a kayak carrier on my truck. This kayak has special valves that you turn your pump nozzle into and it is sealed. It has pop-up valves to let the air out. It comes with two seats, two oars, a backpack, a repair kit, and a pump.
The color scheme is nice too. It is orange with a white hull with black lines on it. This kayak also has a self bailing feature.
The material is very strong. The walls of the kayak are about 4" thick. It is 14' long and 32 inches wide. It weighs 55 pounds in total.
All in all, not a bad kayak for the price. Granted, it does not track as well as a fibreglass kayak, but it also is not as hard to carry around.
I have had some experience with the molded kayaks. I found them kind of tight to fit into and I they tended to have some sharp edges.
