The HydroForce Bolt inflatable kayak is made with 3-ply reinforced vinyl providing maximum durability. This means that when you venture into a shallow area, you do not have to worry about hitting rocks and causing a puncture that could leave you stranded. It is marine grade so you do not have to worry about the long term effects of sun, exposure to petroleum, or salt water.

HydroForce Tracking Fin

It has a removable fin. This gives you directional stability so that you only go in the direction that you want to go. For your comfort, it also features two adjustable seats that double as storage compartments. There are carrying handles so that transporting it fully inflated is easier and an integrated drain valve.

Inflatable Kayak Air Pump It is a large tandem kayak. It measures in at 152” x37”. It can hold up to 374 pounds, which makes it suitable for most tandem kayakers. However, it only weighs 39.9 pounds.

With your purchase, you will receive two 86” aluminum two-bladed oars, the carrying bag, and an air pump to ensure you have everything you need to get out on the water. The air pump is a 14.5” Air Hammer.

Owner’s Opinion of the X2

This kayak holds a 4.6-star rating which is impressive among kayaks. Most owners say that it is a very high quality inflatable. Most say that it is easy to assemble and inflate. Also, many love how comfortable it is to ride in, even on extended trips out. Although some people say that it is an ideal beginner kayak, many others state that they love it even as an experienced kayaker.

If there is a downside to it, the drain plug does not mean it is self-bailing. However, as you read through owner reviews, most people say that it does not take on enough water to need to bail it. Hydro Force Kayak Seats

Is the HydroForce X2 Worth It?

X2 FunWe feel that this inflatable is ideal for beginners and all other kayakers, regardless of skill. If you want to spend a day relaxing on the water with a friend, it will provide you with all the relaxation you could want. It may not do well down rapids, but for most basic river or lake use, we cannot find a downside to it. We like the way that it looks, the high reviews, and the low price for this tandem kayak. We feel that it should be something you at least consider if you are expecting quality.

Aqua Glide Chinook In Whitewater

Chinook XP Review

This inflatable watercraft can be used by up to 3 people or 550 pounds. This makes it ideal for anyone who wants to venture out with friends. The great thing about it is; it only weighs in at 38.1 pounds, which means that you can carry it to your favorite spot without help.

It is very durable and made with 600D polyester fabric. The hull is Duratex heavy duty polyester fabric that is fully reinforced. You will be able to scrub the bottom of a river bed or edge in close to the banks without worry.Chinook XP 3 Person Kayak

Owner’s Thoughts on the Chinook Inflatable

This kayak holds steady with a 4.5-star rating. Most people love it. They say that it is able to hold up to their dog’s paws. Many like that it is large enough to be comfortable when inside, which is easily understood considering a measurement when inflated of 12ft 7in long and 37in wide. It it worth noting though that this kayak uses only Boston valves. It takes about 10 minutes to set up and ideal for beginners. Some people have had issues with a small leak, but it was easily repaired; even after years of heavy use. In short, most everyone agrees that it is a great boat in every aspect.

Is the Chinook XP Worth Considering?

Aqua Glide Chinook In Whitewater One of our biggest concerns would be about the leaks that occur most often are the bladders separating in the seams. The repair kit usually takes care of the issue. Therefore, we feel that for the price and because of all the very high reviews for it; it should be something that you consider if you want a boat that can enable you to fish, paddle, and visit all at the same time.

3 Person Kayak By Coleman

3 Person Inflatable Kayak Review

Half the fun of going out on the water is having friends along with you on your adventure. The problem is, many inflatable kayaks do not give you the room that is necessary to take along a companion, much less two of them.

There have been several manufacturers who thought ‘if a kayak can hold 2 people, why not make it 3?’ And this is where companies such as Coleman stepped up to the challenge and created the 3 man kayak. Some may question whether the 3 man kayak is really worth investing in, so this article is going to review the positives and benefits of several different types to help you decide if it is something you would like, or if it will end up being an ‘Oar-deal’ – get it? Ordeal.

We are not affiliated with any of the manufacturers or models listed in this honest review and are going to give an upfront and unbiased look at each of the kayaks 1 by 1. So, if you are ready to run through the 3 person kayak review, let’s begin.

Most Popular: Coleman 3-Person Inflatable Kayak

topview3personkayakThe Big Basin 3 person Kayak is a durable and rugged kayak that is made from a heavy duty high-quality PVC base and a tarpaulin bottom that will protect the boat when in shallow water or to take on and off the shoreline. The boat can comfortably seat up to 3 people with its fully inflated dimensions of 12’ x 3” x 3’1”. It weighs 34.8 pounds so it is quite easy to carry when out of the water.

Also included with the kayak are the anti-spray covers that make it more of a joy to hit the water, even during the coldest winter months, come rain or shine. It features multiple air chambers to ensure your safety, even when it is loaded down. If you do happen to puncture the kayak, you will still not have to worry about it until you can get it to shore.

This kayak has a Boston Valve that is double threaded to make inflation and deflation quick and easy. It uses the airtight system to ensure that leaks do not happen around the valves.

3 Person Kayak By Coleman

3-Seater by Coleman Ease Of Use

The size of the kayak is easily manageable by three people. If you have 2 people in the kayak it becomes more difficult to navigate, and a solo person in the kayak will find it much harder than a standard single-occupy kayak to move and maneuver. The seating inside the kayak is removable and adjustable so that they can be placed and positioned for maximum comfort and ease of use.
Coleman 3 Person Kayak

 

Pros Of the Big Basin

  • Multiple air chambers keep the kayak safely inflated, even when suffering from a puncture. The multi chamber design allows one or 2 chambers to be punctured and still remain afloat.
  • Boston air valve makes quick work of inflating and deflating the Kayak helping you spend less time on shore and more time onboard.
  • Adjustable seating for up to 3 people makes for a comfortable and tailored seating plan for all on the kayak.

Cons Of The Coleman

  • Not the easiest to use if you want to use it as a solo boater. The size of the kayak really needs a minimum of 2 people for best control.
  • The size of the kayak makes it an unfeasible choice to try to inflate it by mouth. No pump is included, so you will need to purchase this separately.
  • Unless you want to move by using your arms and hands as paddles, you are going to need to invest in some oars. These are not included in the kayak.

Coleman Inflatable Kayak Impression – Is it worth it?

When working out whether the kayak is worth the money it costs, several different aspects are taken into account. The first is the actual cost of the kayak when compared to those of a similar model. Next, the accessories or lack of them will count towards the overall rating. Lastly, the customer reviews of the product are taken into account. When all of these are pooled into one breakdown, it reveals whether the kayak is worth it as a whole rather than just based on price alone.

At the time of writing, the Coleman Big Basin was priced at under $400. On Amazon, the Coleman Big Basin had a high 4.2/5 star rating and many positive reviews from those who have already purchased this very model. For the most part, those who purchased the Coleman Big Basin were more than happy with their selection and it has proved to be all that they had hoped for, plus more!

There is a common pattern running through the ratings that compliment the Coleman Big Basin kayak on its trackability, stability, and comfort. The roominess of the kayak is also a continuous theme throughout the customer reviews too. However, the Coleman Big Basin kayak loses a point from buyers down to the fact that there is no air pump or oars included with the inflatable, and inflating the inflatable is probably the most important part of the Coleman Big Basin.

All in all, when you bring together all of the rating elements, the Coleman Big Basin 3 person kayak proves to be a big hit with both old and new buyers. If you are looking for an all-around decent kayak, then this could prove to be the perfect choice for you.

Is The FastTrack Worth The Price?

For the reasons above, the Sea Eagle FastTrack will have appeal to certain buyers with higher budgets, but with the price tag it has and the overall customer ratings, unfortunately, the kayak looks as though it is not worth the cost.

 

 


Sevylor Caravelle

Multiple Passenger Blow Up Boat

The Sevylor Caravelle is not so much a kayak as it is a dinghy. But while it can’t really be classified as a kayak, it has been included as it can serve an almost identical purpose and is great for exploring and venturing out into the water with your friends. The Sevylor Caravelle does not come with seats and makes a great secondary boat to carry on your kayak or larger boat.

It is able to hold up to three people or 600 pounds in weight and can carry a 12V electric motor and already has the fittings for an SBM. It also features its own pump and oars included with the boat. There is an airtight guarantee that ensures that the boat will not deflate while inflated (unless done manually)

Pros Of the Kayak

  • It is a cheap and affordable alternative to a more expensive kayak.
  • The lack of seats makes sitting more comfortable as you are closer to the water
  • Airtight and anti-leak guarantee, plus air pump and oars included.

Cons Of The Kayak

  • The Vessel is not a kayak at all.
  • No spray covers included to keep the occupants dry.
  • Amazon Rating is quite low which can be a sign that customers are not happy.

Is It Worth The Price?

At such a great price, you can’t really complain. After all, you can enjoy a day out on the water with several friends in the same way. However, the very fact that the boat is not a kayak makes this a little bit of a strange placement in the kayak category. While it is not a kayak, it does make a great addition to carry on a larger kayak or vessel.

Looking at the customer reviews, most of them are positive. There are a few that clearly demonstrate customer dissatisfaction, most of whom had not read the details. The fact that the boat comes with oars and a pump makes this an economical choice and is well worth the price tag.

Is the Sevylor Fiji Worth Buying?

Most people who have purchased the Fiji inflatable kayak feel that it is a wonderful product for the affordable price of it. Some admit that there are possibly better options out there, but none that will cost you as little as this 2 man inflatable kayak. The only warnings that come with it are that the stability may not be what you are hoping for if you put it toward the maximum weight amount. There are a lot of people who do not like any type of oar that folds up, so this could be a personal preference issue for you. In general, though, it holds an average rating of 4 stars so it should be usable by most any novice who simply wants to try out their skills at kayaking. More On Sevylor Fiji⇒

After looking through numerous reviews for the Sunny it is loved by most people who have purchased it. They love how stable it is and note that it is one of the few inflatables that can be easy to get on and off of without it tipping over. Some of the current owners have had it for several years and never experienced any problems with it developing a leak in the seals or getting punctured easily. They do admit that they do have scuff marks on the bottom from where it has scrubbed the bottom, but so far there are no punctures. It offers superb tracking and a variety of other features that they enjoy as well. Some reviewer’s only negative thought about it is that the double I-beam bottom could be a little thicker.
