If you’re looking for a kayak that can hold 2 people plus camping gear for a week, this is it. It is made for the most-demanding situations where you need to be able to pack-in a lot of gear.The Sea Eagle 380x Explorer inflatable kayak is as tough as nails and as rugged as the men and women who ride in it. A handy mid-size kayak that holds two to three people and up to 750 pounds, the 380x lets you rocket fearlessly down Class IV rapids, traverse miles of wilderness rivers to remote camping spots, or fly fish on trout streams that other fishermen can’t access. Even better for travelers, the kayak deflates and stores in a handy carrying bag, so you easily haul it along on a small plane to impossibly obscure fishing or camping sites. There’s no better kayak for true adventurers than the Sea Eagle 380x.

Unlike ordinary “dry-only” kayaks with no drains or “wet-only” kayaks with permanently open drains, the 380x offers four extra-large, easily convertible drains for both wet and dry conditions. When the drains are open, the craft bails itself in rough whitewater or ocean conditions. When the drains are closed, they won’t let a drop of water in, keeping both you and your cargo comfortably dry in calm water. And even in the worst-case scenario–when your kayak is filled to the gunwales with water–the 380x still floats.

The 380x Explorer owes its durability to 1,000-denier, polyester-supported, high-pressure fabric with quadruple-thickness electronic-welded seams. How tough is the Explorer? In torture testing, Sea Eagle pounded it mercilessly with the claw of a claw hammer to no effect. Stabbing it with a screwdriver also had a negligible impact. The “crocodile hide” hull is so sturdy that it can stand up to almost any challenge, let alone a few bumps from the dock. Other details include integrated bow and stern spray skirts with water-deflecting guards; rope lacing that forms secure handholds and convenient tie-down points; two tall-back seats; two 8-foot double-ended paddles; an inflation pump; bow and stern storage bags; and a repair kit.

The 380x Explorer measures 150 by 37 inches (W x L) and weighs 47 pounds. It’s also backed by a three-year warranty.

Specifications: Exterior: 12′ 6″ x 3′ 1″ Interior: 11′ 9″ x 1′ 3″ Deflated: 31″ x 20″x 9″ Tube Diameter: 11 1/2″ Capacity: 2-3 adults or 750 pounds Weight: 47 pounds Chambers: Three (port, starboard, floor) Material: 1000 Denier reinforced Seam: Quadruple overlap seam Floor: Separate inflatable I-beam construction floor Air Valves: Two Halkey Roberts one way Inflation time: 8 minutes

I have been on several canoe trips and I hate to say it I purchased the 420x (bigger boat) in April of 2015, Let me start by saying Stacy and I are not avid paddlers, in fact, neither of us has ever sat in a kayak. I have been on several canoe trips and I hate to say it, I am a novice at best. The last trip I was on was about 30 years ago so I am sure time has not worked in my favor as an athlete.We had issues the boat would need to address due to our unique geography. We live, work and play in Alaska. We live on the Gastineau Channel. The water we would be kayaking in has an average temperature of 47 degrees. Today’s forecast for the channel is a Southeast wind of 35kt and 7 foot seas, air temperature of 45 degrees and rain. The beaches here have razor clams, mussel beds and are rocky. The tides in this area travel at 2 to 3 Kt and the tidal changes are as big as 25 feet. Those are a lot of hazards.We basically looked for a boat that we didn’t have to learn to use, we are amateurs and I am too old to learn to roll…

then you get a 180 day free return option if you are not satisfied (but the boat has to be in a excellent … I own this boat since a year now. It comes with all the stuff advertised on the picture (do not be missleaded by very old reviews from 2008 or 2010). To my understanding, even if you order from a 3th party seller, it is shipped by Sea-Eagle from New York.Anyway: If you buy it from the sea eagle website, then you get a 180 day free return option if you are not satisfied (but the boat has to be in a excellent re-sellable condition, so I would not count too much on that return option).What you receive: The boat looks excellent, it is made of PVC, don’t let you misslead by all the different names. PVC is a compromise in durability and rigidity and lower price. Boats with better material might cost a few thousands. The pro seats are perfect for us (whitewater). The paddles are okay, they are heavier and very hard to deconstruct after usage (maybe you better put some oil to the connections). The bag is important. The repair kit is also essential, we already had to…
