  1. Liza

    This Aquaglide is great. This is my third inflatable kayak. I love it. The first one was really cheap and gave me a good idea on whether or not I wanted a better one. The second one had their bladders covered with a canvas like material. It was a pain to get dry after each use. I live in the Northwest and always have to on guard for mold and mildew. The Chelan 120 fits nice in the bag, is easy to inflate, and with the fin it tracks very well.

    Fast boat, quick to inflate, high-quality US construction, well-thought-out, some water enters the interior in light waves.

    I am new to inflatable kayaks, but not inflatable boats. I have owned Achilles, Avon, Saturn inflatable power boats and I know what a good rugged one is built like and this Chelan 140 did not disappoint. The dropped stitched floor takes 6 lbs of air pressure and the side tubes takes 3 which when inflated makes a very solid boat, more like a conventional kayak. There is no sag anywhere to slow it down or cause it to not track well. Whereas other similar boats from other manufacturers I looked at have as little as 1lb of pressure in the floor and 2 in the sides which I don’t see how that could be rigid enough.
    The next thing I loved was the comfort level. The inflatable seats will raise you a good 6 inches above the floor, and the back of the seat has straps that are adjustable for what I consider excellent back support. If you were to encounter rough sea conditions you can easily let the air out of the seat to get your CG lower, and pull the caps off the floor drains if needed.

    There’s plenty to like about the Chelan 140. It’s the perfect size for solo use, or for paddling with one of my kids. When fishing, I install the front seat backwards so my son and I are face to face and there’s just the right amount of space between us. The seats are the most comfortable kayak seats I’ve tried, and the foot rest is never fiddly or in the way. The boat is also super stable. My kids can climb into and out of it like it was a swim platform. And the flat drop stitch floor makes it easy to step into and out of from a dock. It sets up super quick, with just three air chambers that all use the same Halkey-Roberts valves. The single layer PVC skin and removable floor make it easy to wipe clean and dry. It fits into its backpack bag with room to spare for gear, and my petite wife can carry it from car to shore. Another thing worth mentioning is the quality. There’s no obvious cost cutting. The materials are durable, the construction is tidy and precise, and the boat comes well rigged.

    This boat seems like a great upgrade from my Chinook.

    Like it. Great choice

  7. Matty

    It’s 15 1/2 feet long, great for family with small kids, can ride with 2 adults or 1 adult and 2 kids. Very steady and fast. Needs a longer paddles. Takes about 10-12 minutes to inflate with aquaglide manual pump. High quality materials used. Expensive, Yes, but worth it.

  8. KEN

    Have had this out on the water many times now. LOVE that you can set it up or collapse it in about 5 minutes. We don’t put it in the bag, we just bungee cord the deflated boat to keep it relatively compact — aids in setup and tear down times. Leave the keel fin attached too, it’s fiddly to attach/detach.

    The key point for an inflatable boat is that there’s nothing to put on top of the car. And this easily compares to any hard kayak OR canoe we have paddled. It’s taking the place of a 17 foot Grumman Aluminum canoe that has been with us since 1980.

    15 foot length means this is very directionally stable. Construction is surprisingly durable — once you get it you will understand the high price tag. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it, it’s extremely robust material and construction. Drop stitch floor is incredibly rigid when inflated, couldn’t believe it. Very comfortable seats which clip and velcro in place for both the front and rear occupant.

    Nice. A+

    You can definitely stand in the boat on calm water. Some light casting might be doable from a standing position if you’re careful, but I would prefer to cast from their height adjustable fishing chair instea
