Aquaglide Chinook Kayak Review

Aquaglide Chinook Kayak Review – Middle of the Pack

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 …

Intex Excursion Pro Review

Intex Excursion Pro Kayak Review – Does It Deserve the “Pro” in Its Name?

Putting “Pro” into the name of a product is a bold and aggressive statement, so I wanted to review the Excursion Pro kayak and see if it deserves the title in its name? I bought the K2 (tandem) version of the kayak as a gift for my nephew, but I asked him to let me use it as well 🙂 …

Full Dropstitch Inflatable Kayaks

Full Dropstitch Inflatable Kayaks (Perform Like Hardshells?)

Inflatable kayaks have always been a portable, storage-friendly alternative to hardshell kayaks, but they were lacking in one department: handling and performance. Why? As you might know, the air bladders of traditional inflatable kayaks cause the boat to sit high on the water. Even though their performance is adequate for most paddlers, it is not on par with that of …

Advanced Elements Advancedframe Kayak Review

Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Kayak Review – Is it good for day touring?

The Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame sit-inside kayak is a so-called hybrid between a folding and an inflatable kayak, since it has solid parts (aluminum frame and plastic inserts) surrounded by the inflatable body. Honestly, the AdvancedFrame is one of my favorite inflatable yaks. It is not without faults, but I feel the value and performance you get for the money is …
