Explorer 420X Inflatable Kayak: The Explorer 420X Inflatable Kayak by Sea Eagle is the largest IK in the Explorer series. It's tough as nails and ready to take on up to class IV rapids just as easily as it handles glassy flat water. Stem to stern, it’s constructed of super light and super strong 1,000 denier polyester-supported high-pressure fabric. This state-of-the-art design incoporates electronically welded seams and a double floor system, making the Explorer as tough as “crocodile hide”. What do you do when the placid river you’re kayaking becomes a free-for-all of rapids? The Explorer bails itself through the 16 large, evenly spaced, convertible drain valves. On flat water you can close the drains to prevent even a drop of water in so you stay comfortable and your cargo stays dry. And in flat water, slide on the large, removable skeg to keep the Explorer on its intended course. The skeg limits the sideways deviation called yaw that comes from paddling, allowing for greater efficiency and speed. It's ideal for those long treks across wide, scenic lakes. Integrated bow and stern spray skirts keep you dry while bungee lacing provides convenient tie-down points. The Explorer Inflatable Kayak can be piloted by one, or easily accommodates two adventurers and their gear. With a beam of just over three feet wide, you get extreme stability. Two shock-absorbing inflatable seats are held rock-solid with nylon webbing that clips to six integrated D-rings. No matter where your adventures take you the Sea Eagle Explorer 420X Inflatable Kayak Deluxe Tandem Package is ready to go!
Deluxe Kayak Seats (2): These great inflatable seats provide superior back support for paddling and fishing. The design allows you to sit 5 inches off the floor for a drier ride. 14 inches of back support will keep you comfortable all day long A rear pocket gives you additional storage options.

AB30 4-Part Kayak Paddles (2): These asymetrical paddles are great for all conditions. The aluminum shaft and Fibrylon blades are a perfect mix of value and durability.

A41 Large Bellows Pump: This high-capacity footpump is made of durable ABS plastic. The bellows design makes it quick and easy to pump up your boat by foot, and also packs down for easy travel. The A41 includes a triple-styled nozzle for use with Sea Eagle's deluxe one-way valves.

Repair Kit: This essential repair kit includes two 4-in x 3-in white patches and two tubes of glue packed into a water-resistant shell.
I ordered a 420x, and took it out with my wife. We live in Iowa, and are used to high winds. Well, I learned going downstream on a slow moving current into a 20-25 mph wind is not a good idea. There are times, when we were going upstream. Was that the boat's fault... no mine. The waves were 2 feet + high, and at no time did I ever have concerns. So I agree with others that these kayaks are not speed demons or masters of handling. What they are, is bombproof, extremely well built kayaks that come with everything you need. The newer drop stitch floor is awesome. You can actually stand (not recommended), but it is an awesome improvement. I saw one review "the master of all things, not the best at one." Well there is one thing ... The capacity of these boats has to put them at the top for extended trips to the backcountry. I love this boat, and probably should have given it a ten.
I too am new to the world of kayaking, as is my family. We were looking for an activity that we could ALL do together and the 420x seemed to be the best answer for us. All in all, I am pretty pleased with the HULLS construction. I was at first frustrated with the inflation valves, but once I gathered how they functioned, I am pleased as punch. The electric pump is not necessary (imo) as it didn't take long at all to have the boat completely inflated and ready to go. Space wise, I am able to fit me, my wife and my daughter (as well as necessary gear AND the dog) I am over 6' and the wife is a couple of inches shy, so the added length of the 420x was essential. One thing I would suggest is to go with the DELUXE package as opposed to the PRO if you plan to have this boat on open water. The pro seats I think would be better suited for whitewater excursions as they put you LOW in the boat and it makes it a little more difficult to paddle on open water. That and the fact that the flag snaps are cheap (I broke 2 of them within the first 2 days). Of course this isn't a 'speedy' kayak but you can get and maintain comfortable speeds with 2 people in sync. (and of course the skeg is essential on flat water). All in all, we are very pleased with our purchase of this kayak and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to one of my friends.
