A few weeks ago, I got the chance to try an Aquaglide Chinook 120 inflatable kayak for an entire day. I was very much looking forward to it, since the Chinook sits somewhere between the entry-level kayak (Intex Excursion Pro) and the high-end kayak (Sea Eagle 380x). Aquaglide is not a well-known brand. I’ve never sat in one before, which made the experience all the more interesting. If you’re thinking of getting this kayak, you’ll want to read my review of the Aquaglide Chinook below.

My review of the SE Razorlite will walk you through everything you need to know about the kayak, so let’s get started.
