    Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Convertible Inflatable Kayak

    Ordered the Advanced Elements AirFrame Convertible. Ordered several other accessories and such. Lots of money invested. Were we nervous? Yes. We ordered all that based on others reviews. A little risky. Were also interested in the Sea Eagle 385 but no reviews whatsoever from consumers?!? Who needs that? Let me tell you we shopped this to DEATH. This is the best there is considering wt., capacity, width (do you really think you'll be comfortable paddling a 38" kayak), and price. Although don't be misled. If you get all the goodies not included with the boat (like pump and paddles for starters, $250.00 right there), you'll go by $1000.00 at a dead run. Took it out on a lake. Had a lovely time. Came back nice and dry. Tracks well, doesn't blow around. Nice. Got a compliment on it. So we're one for one. Here in Central Florida it is next to impossible to find an air gauge for an inflatable kayak. Order it on the pump from Advanced Elements. During inflation make sure you are reading the gauge right. The black lines are usually Bars and it is the pink inner lines which are PSI. There are two tubes they call the main chambers that go all the way around the kayak. These are the biggest to pump up and are no problem at all. About thirty-five pumps in each with a double action hand pump. You have to be careful because the two tubes share the same pocket and have to be pumped up equally. The valves are a breeze. Don't worry about that. After the main chambers you have the floor which is much easier and then all the little stuff to pump up which is just a few pumps each. The whole process is very quick. The spray decks zip on from the rear. Know that the Aluminum "Ribs" are one rib in front and one rib in back. That's all it needs it's just that is a little misleading. It is a little heavy, but like someone else said in a review, that's a good thing. You don't want a light weight. After you take it out of the water, just prop it up a little, wipe down the outside with a towel, remove the spray deck and seats, deflate (use your pump to aid in deflation), fold and stow. When folding make sure you keep the straight line straight. Folds real nice that way.

    Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Convertible Inflatable Kayak

    My wife and I bought this boat in July to take on our bi-annual trips to Belize, since it was compact and light enough to use as checked luggage. We were amazed with the ease of set up and inflation the very first time we used it on a local river and have only been more impressed each time we use it. So far it has been used both solo & tandem on lakes and rivers up to class 2. We have toured, fly fished and used it as a swim platform. Because of its low profile in the water, wind does not bother this boat any more than my rigid kayak and less so than our canoe. Set up time is no more than 20 minutes from the trunk to the water. While it does take a little longer to deflate and dry, it fits easily back into the duffel bag.
