Kayaking is not the easiest hobby to have when you are an apartment dweller, and I had no space to keep a hard shell kayak. I love to go kayaking with my friends, but they only had two boats so we could never just go out ourselves. Eventually, I settled on the Sea Eagle 370 kayak. I am really glad I did.
Consider the Sea Eagle 370 Pro Feature List:
- It is lightweight and portable.
- It is an inflatable sport kayak that takes only around 8 minutes to reach full inflation.
- It received an NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association) Certification.
- It features three deluxe one-way valves.
- The Sea Eagle 370 even comes with lashed-down inflatable spray skirts, and can be bought at an over 50% discount from this Amazon link.
It is easy to set up, and every Sea Eagle 370 inflatable kayak review mentioned that. The first few times might take a bit longer than the advertisements would lead you to believe, but with a little practice, it is a really smooth process. This was extremely important for me since I have space concerns to put up with.
One big concern is that the carry bag that it comes along with has only one strap instead of two. If you are walking long distances then it really hits hard on the shoulder. The solution I found for this is to inflate the kayak right out of the car and carry it to the launch site! Works superb for me.
The stability of the Sea Eagle 370 pro package is really incredible. I feel really safe that it will not tip, even though I tried to quite a bit. In fact, the construction is extremely solid. The performance suffers a bit, and there tends to be a small amount of drift. However, this is an inflatable kayak and those sorts of things are probably expected from inflatable designs.
That being said, I could not be happier with the fact that I bought one. Mine does not even have a scratch on it, and only ever developed a few mud stains from using it. If anything, those are badges of honour from going out on the water.
