There are a lot of reasons to buy an inflatable kayak. The main reason of course, is storage. Many outdoor adventurers simply don’t have space to store a kayak between adventures or a good way to transport it to the launch. It seems silly to rent a storage unit just for one thing, and it would be absurd to put it in the living room.
For these folks, an inflatable kayak is a brilliant solution. You can toss it from your closet right to your trunk and you’re off. Another reason is that not everyone has the ability to hoist a boat on and off of the car’s roof, especially if it’s a taller SUV. This also makes an inflatable an attractive choice.
The Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Sport has an aluminum rib-frame technology in the bow and stern that provides increased paddling performance. The 3-layered rip-stop fabric is durable and will withstand bumps and bruises if need be. It only weighs 26 pounds and will support 250 pounds. It even has a skeg for tracking and a storage area, so you’re all set for a long day of paddling.
