Advanced Elements Advancedframe Kayak Review

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 …

Intex Excursion Pro Kayak K1 & K2 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. Call …

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 …
