i have the Challenger K1 (one person) and the Intex Explorer K2 (2 person)... I personally prefer the design of the Challenger over the Explorer and would buy this if I didn't already have 2 'cheap' inflatable kayaks. Assuming your expectations are not out of this world, these really do provide excellent value and offer a very cheap way to get you on the water Smilie

For context - from prior deal I paid about the same for the Explorer K2 and paid $50 for the Challenger K1.

I paid this exact price back in November 2016. Mine is still going strong. I've used it for solo trips as well as 2-peraon. My 10 year old daughter and 11 year old daughter have taken it out by themselves and been able to manage without incident (once out on the water).

I have fishing kayaks, sea kayaks, two SUPs and a couple of Challenger K1 inflatables (bough on Amazon for $50 each), which I use on the Chesapeake Bay tributaries.

The Intex inflatables are inexpensive, comfortable, they work, and store easily.

They are much slower than hardside kayaks and SUPs. They perform poorly in moderate wind, and do not track well. But they offer a decent, inexpensive way to try out kayaking, or to have on hand to lend to landlubbers who want to paddle with you but don't have a kayak of their own. They'll have to paddle harder, but that's ok.

But expect to outgrow the Intex inflatables quickly if you like kayaking.

Would this be easy to tow behind another kayak to put some small children in? We let them ride in our laps last year but I think they would have more fun with this. We just do calmer areas of lakes. I also have a 12 y/o that used a little kids kayak last year... she may like this better since it has a seat.

Weight capacity 220 lbs. Not for two full sized grownups, but would be great for fun sized kids.
That's for the single person kayak. The two person is around 400 lbs (180 kg).

That's for the K1 (1 passenger). This one is the K2 and it's 400lbs

Hmm, I wonder how this would work in the intracoastal in South Florida?

Or is there another inflatable model that would work better? I'd get a hard kayak, but I don't have a place to store it. I don't even have a hose outside... with this one, would I be able to bring it home and rinse it in the shower or would that be a huge pain?

Oh I see now thanks! But later in the description it says 350lbs, just to narrow it down a bit more in case someone needs to know.

Thank you, I was mistakenly looking at the specs for the single. I do notice now that, later in the description, it specifically says 350lb limit. I'd probably err on the side of caution and believe the 350lb guideline rather than risk it in water with the 400 lb guideline.

Thanks for all that info! Would you care to venture a guess on how it would do in some 'gentle whitewater' kayaking. That is to say, would it fare well over a bit of rocky area, or would you say that any rocks at all would be out of the question?

I have both.. fantastic for the price.

Anyone find a solid inexpensive carrying case as the cloth one that came tore and wasn't waterproof
