We bought two of these this summer. I think I got each for around $85. They've worked out really well so far. They're really nice for families like us that only have sedans.

Not the lowest price ever. This was front page on this site at $55.

It is also on sale for $69.99 at academy sports and outdoors.

This is a good price. I bought two earlier at the same price and paid 8 bucks for a warranty, which is nice for inflatable rafts. Turns out they hold up nice even dragging over dulled rock riverbed. Easily holds hundreds of lbs, and it tracks halfway decent for a cheap kayak. Bonus that two paddles are included. Makes kayaking easy rivers much more manageable when you can deflate it and Uber back to launch.

Nice. Are there any inflatable boats/kayaks/whatever for 4 people? Living in Houston I feel like I should probably have something like this just in case.

Bought this but really hard to get it going forward. It just spins... maybe it's just my skill?

Will this work for rapids? Anyone know the weight limit on this bad boy?

Did you put the skeg (plastic fin) in?

So long as the skeg fin is in, it shouldn't be too hard to get it going forward. I wouldn't buy this for solo use. It tracks surprisingly well with two people in it or 40ish pounds of gear in the front but it tracks poorly without any weight in the front.

Bought this when it was $55. Dont have much experience with kayaks, but this thing is fun! Random advice/tips/info time:

Quite compact for you small SUV/car people! Its a bit of a pain to pump up and inflate compared to a hard body kayak, but the portability (and break down for long-term storage, i.e. now in winter/fall) makes it a really good compromise.

I wouldnt use this on any serious rapids....but for what it is, it holds up with wakes/slight waves. Ive taken it out in sea water before (no waves, more inside of a bay) and it did great.

The skeg (its the plastic fin that connects to the bottom of the kayak) is important for steering, otherwise youll just spin. I would advise drilling a very small hole in the skeg (about 1/4 inch) and tying a small lanyard back to the boat somehow. If you knock the skeg off somehow (i.e. shallow water) you may lose it.

Be very careful with the pump. Its easy to go beyond the range of travel and it will break. Its just plastic. If this happens, you can break it apart and mend it. I have some small rivets making it a lot more robust, and now Im a lot more careful with it since its broken once before.

Its quite light for two people, but for one person its probably too cumbersome unless you drag it (I wouldnt really recommend dragging it on rocks/sharper surfaces).

You can get some really low-weight anchors! Something like this https://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Ma...yak+anchor

Ive taken mine for some low-key brackish water fishing! A bit awkward, but good for killing time.

For the price I paid (55 dollars) it was totally worth it! 70 is great too!

Oh, Id advise to rinse off with fresh water if you take it in salt water.

Another thing, had 2 ~200lb people, some tackle, a small cooler, and it and it did well. Definitely pushing the limits though lol.
