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!
Tall Back Kayak Seats (2): The Tall Back Kayak Seat latches securely to the D-rings on your kayak. A built-in zipper pouch on the back of the seat can be used for additional storage. Made of thermal molded foam, the seat gives you a low sitting position for maximum stability in rough whitewater. It provides great back support with an 18 inch high back rest. ( Weighs 2 lbs., 14 inches x 18 inches x 14 inches).
AB40 4-Part Kayak Paddles (2): The asymmetrical spoon blade design of this paddle allows for smooth entries and an even pull, maximizing the power from your stroke. They require less gripping force, less effort per stroke. The AB40's are fiberglass reinforced and offer multiple feathering angles. Snap lock buttons allow you to disconnect the paddle into 4 parts. (Weighs 2.92 lbs).
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.
Carry Bag: This heavy-duty 440-denier nylon carry bag makes transporting your Sea Eagle easy. It includes a convenient shoulder strap and drawstring closure. Measures 26 inches by 48 inches.
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 love this kayak. I just took it down a class IV stretch of the Clackamas River and it handled perfectly. The boat was nearly full of water and it drained in seconds. The center of gravity is so low that I never feared being thrown out or flipping the kayak. It also takes a beating like a champ. It has taken full speed collisions into boulders and tree limbs and it doesn't even make a scuff. I've also taken it upstream on calmer water and it was easy paddling while using the skeg. With the high-back seats I can go for hours in total comfort. This is the most versatile kayak on the market. I am fully satisfied and happy I did my research.
This is my first kayak/canoe or any boat for that matter so this review might not carry much weight with more experienced paddlers. I've enjoyed my explorer in a variety of conditions this past year and would definitely recommend it as a starter boat / camping boat for the storage space challenged individuals such as myself. I ordered the 420x Explorer as the 'Pro' package which has the upgraded seats and such, and I will say that I have not been dissapointed in the overall comfort the boat has. I researched many boats and decided on this boat for what I needed to use it for - 1)It's a helluva load hauler at a listed 855lbs and I have no reason so far to believe this wrong - I've placed 2 giant coolers full, all of my not-so-compact camping gear, my girlfriend up front and my small dog with no problems. I haven't read of another IK in this price range that can claim that. 2) I needed a VERY stable boat with some versatility since my girlfriend isn't much of a swimmer and is just overall afraid of the water (She's slowly getting more comfortable since being in this boat with me). I also wanted to be able to try out different conditions paddling, which includes some whitewater - and this boat, while not too maneuverable, has fit my needs. My only complaint is the speed it paddles and difficulty in a stiff headwind / crosswind, however with 2 paddlers we've been just fine with 20kts wind - didn't move fast, but reached our destination. No inflatable can fill all the needs, but if camping, load hauling or just a friendly stable boat that is extremely rugged is tops on your list, this might be the boat for you.
