  1. Peter

    I bought my Expedition Elite kayak on primeoutdoorshop. Like many of you, I researched kayaks for many hours. I wanted an inflatable so I could more easily take it on trips
    The drawback of an inflatable is that it takes a little time to setup, and it isn’t quite as fast. We’ll, I find that I don’t need to pack it up all the way into its bag most of the time, so my setup time is around 5-7 minutes with the Advanced Elements pump (highly recommended). Pretty easy.

    As for speed, I brought my GPS this morning, and I can cruise at about 3.5 to 4+ mph (when I push myself), and I can sprint to 4.9 mph. I got a pretty good paddle (carbon shaft, 4 piece, fiberglass blades, weighs 30.5 ounces) that helps with fatigue, so I can go faster. Hopefully my paddling technique will improve and I will get a little better.

    Paddler profile: intermediate/advanced hardshell paddler with Gulf Coast/ Everglades/10,000 Islands/Keys open water experience in a Norse Sleipner and a Valley Sirona. For this new boat, follow the instructions. Oh, did you forget? Welp, they put em on a tag at the end lift handle. Don’t want to spend a ton of time pumping? Let’s call it 70ish double pump strokes total across all chambers. Can’t handle that? Then buck up or skip it. Seriously. And buy your own pump cause nope, they don’t include one

    The kayak comes with an adjustable padded seat with a high backrest for increased comfort during extended paddling trips. It also includes adjustable foot braces to accommodate paddlers of different heights.

    Very good quality kayak. With my personal experience,If you are looking for a kayak that has more stability vs a narrower variant that has more roll, you may want to consider the Expedition Elite. It’s probably a good intro kayak as well since it is inherently stable enough that one could literally stand in it while afloat. It tracks pretty well and it has a large cockpit with an inflatable coaming. Depending on conditions, spray skirt is optional – (requires you to buy AE’s custom spray skirt to fit it) I’d recommend the touring spray skirt if you want to keep the water out more effectively as well as stay warm on the ocean trips. This kayak can hold an impressive amount of gear if you are considering any coastline touring. I like that I can store it in the trunk of my car – and on a whim, take it out on the water. Setting up is quick although stowing and packing away are made more lengthy by having to insure everything is completely clean and dry before being properly stored. You can buy marine fabric waterproofing to make water retension less of an issue – but keep plenty of towels handy for drying the kayak off after each use.

    he AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite offers good stability and tracking capabilities, making it suitable for long-distance paddling and touring. It also has a removable skeg that enhances tracking performance in open water.

    t features a puncture-resistant PVC tarpaulin hull material, making it sturdy and able to withstand abrasions from rocks, branches, and other obstacles. Being an inflatable kayak, it offers the advantage of easy transportation and storage. When deflated, it can be folded into a compact size and carried in a storage bag

  7. Candu

    I’m new to kayaking having only rented a coupe of times. This inflatable is durable, tracks well and is quick to inflate when you get to your destination.

  8. Isaac

    The kayak is constructed with a combination of aluminum ribs and drop-stitch air chambers, which provides excellent rigidity and tracking performance on the water..
    A++ to the quality and shipping time

    After searching for a while , finally found what I was searching and at an affordale price. I’m a bigger person that lives in an apartment so I had some pretty specific needs when it came to finding a Kayak. So far I am not disappointed, the kayak is pretty easy to inflate, not too terrible to launch, and I sit higher on the water than I expected. The opening is big enough I can get in without too many issues, getting out is kinda tough but that’s more my lack of flexibility than the kayaks problem I think. Really excited to see how this goes over the summer.

    The kayak inflates quickly using a high-flow, twist-lock valve, and it comes with a durable and reliable air pump for convenience.
