BIC Sport YAKKAir Lite 1 Inflatable Kayak - Designed for adventure paddling on the go, the YAKKAir Lite One inflatable kayak is well suited for on-water fun. Aimed at beginners and occasional paddlers, the YAKKAir is stable, sturdy and lightweight. Ideally suited to lakes, bays and quiet rivers, rigid stiffeners fitted inside the stern and bow tips give an excellent cutting edge through the water. The YAKKAir Lite easily inflates using the included pump with pressure gauge. Folded down into its deluxe carry bag, the YAKKAir Lite is easy to carry and store. Bow and stern deck rigging and mesh storage pockets give you plenty of room for lunch and spare clothes. Whether you're traveling by car, train, or plane, the BIC Sport YAKKAir Lite One inflatable kayak is ready to paddle when you are.
Deluxe Storage/Transport Kayak - 30in x 17-in x 12-in rugged fabric backpack/carrying case features adjustable shoulder straps, mesh pockets and compression straps.
Pump - The pump included a pressure gauge to get your boat to the right pressure (3.5 PSI side tubes, 2.0 PSI floor). A Y-shape nozzle inflates the two side chambers simultaneously, avoiding any pressure difference.

Kayak is easy to "assembly", tracks well, and doesn't get blown around like what you'd expect of an inflatable. Biggest complaint is that the seats are so-so and need frequent adjusting. Don't be scared by the lack of reviews, as I assume the price tag of this "blow up toy" is what deters a lot of potential buyers. It is not a blow up toy (see Sevylor), but rather a well-designed, high-quality, high-pressure inflatable kayak with all the performance of an entry-level hardsell.
I bought one in 2014. I used it lightly (less than 10 outings) and stored it properly indoors over the winter. This springtime, I inflated the floorboard and one of the seams gave way, making the floorboard unusable. I did not over-inflate; the seam simply failed. I have now fabricated a new floorboard made of several layers of rigid insulating board used in home construction. The kayak actually tracks better now than it did with the inflated floorboard. But, be aware that the floorboard probably will not stand up to much use, unless Bic has improved the quality since my purchase.
