Hey Hermitage, Old Hickory here.

They are inflatable. $70 with paddle. My friends liked them (I have the red kayak). I haven't ridden in them personally, but so far I've only heard good reviews.

I've seen them for sale at Academy in Madison, or on Amazon.

I am the brother. I bought one from amazon. Intex Challenger K1 Kayak, 1-Person Inflatable Kayak Set with Aluminum Oars and High Output Air Pump

The price is always around $90.00. Don’t be fooled by the scam sale. I love this thing so much. It is inflatable and fits into the bag in comes in. The bag is a big duffel bag. I kayak to work and I am able to keep it in my locker.
I absolutely love the freedoms this gives me. Without a car or a garage it is not feasible to keep a solid one. I keep it stored under my stairs in my condo. I have been out with it three times this week. Actually I really think it’s been three days in a row.
Like another poster said, don’t think you’ll win races, it’s pretty slow and I paddle up stream to work. It’s tough but I love a challenge. It gets me out and I’m able to switch things up and not go biking every day. I have spelt hours reclined in this thing reading and I love bragging to my colleagues that, ”I kayaked into work today.”
I have wanted a kayak for a long time but couldn’t handle the space so I never got one until I thought about getting one that could blow up. I searched on amazon and found this one. The reviews are really good. I was going to wait until this season to buy it but a freak sale came on late last summer. I don’t know why but it was listed for $26.00!!! How could I have resisted. Sometimes I see it at around $80.00ish but you never know when things are going to go on sale.
Make sure to check out the other options on amazon. Just type in blow up kayak.
Let me know if you want to go kayaking together someone! 👍

In my experience, prices are very similar unless you're not buying directly from Amazon. There's always the odd crazy sellers that want to make extreme profits on rare items...

Look at the thousands of products that are prime eligible and compare prices. Of course, if you only look at the rare product, you may find outlier prices.

I just bought this, it's about $2 cheaper on the Canadian side.
I also bought this:, it's $4.50 more expensive on the Canadian sides. same price.

Compare prices on and, and you'll find very similar prices.

u/aMinnesotaBro · 5 pointsr/financialindependence

Here's the link! The reviews are phenomenal and the price is the cheapest they've ever been.

Frig been looking for a great inflatable kayak? Anyone have a good suggestion (links please) under 200$. Ive been on amazon for a while and have a few I like, but it’s hard to tell if it will be shit or not.

Intex Challenger K1 Kayak, 1-Person Inflatable Kayak Set with Aluminum Oars and High Output Air Pump

Intex Explorer K2 Kayak, 2-Person Inflatable Kayak Set with Aluminum Oars and High Output Air Pump

I own both and can attest that they are perfect for calm water with light breeze. The pump they come with inflate the kayak in under 10 minutes. They weigh about 15-20 lbs each.

The explorer k2 handles more like a canoe.

Happy paddling!

u/highlander311 · 3 pointsr/boston

to echo /u/jtet93- you're not going to find any good "secret" spots, unless you know someone with a private roof deck. Memorial drive side is usually less crowded, but still very much so.

Otherwise, I bought these and they're effing great. Dropped them in 10 minutes before the show

u/hell-is-coworkers · 3 pointsr/OkCupid

I have this inflatable kayak and I know it sounds ridiculous but it honestly works great. I've used it multiple times without any issue.

u/BeerForThought · 2 pointsr/Denver

Welcome to our beautiful state. There are too many scenic lakes to list. I'd recommend you buy an inflatable kayak and start exploring. Most people won't share their favorite spots anyways.

I use this on lakes and annually on the Platte

u/algo2 · 2 pointsr/Knoxville

You can buy inflatable kayaks for relatively cheap. Here's one on Amazon for $87.80 and ships for free if you have a Prime account. I think I saw some Kayaks in Target or Wal-mart but I'm not sure how much they were. They may have cheaper inflatable ones also.

Check all sporting good stores. There's a new one near Cedar Bluff called Acadamy Sports + Outdoors.

u/Anabeer · 2 pointsr/Kayaking

Most inflatable kayaks are either kids toys or pretty much expensive and heavy.


I was on a local lake a few weeks ago and saw a group paddling a couple of inflatables along with a rec boat. We chatted. These boats are packable, come in a bag with pump, skeg, paddle, seat and boat for $90 CAN. Must be less in the US.

Here it is in Canada:

The girls said these were the most comfortable things like evar, they felt safe on the lake and they certainly had no trouble scooting didn't seem like they were working hard to get anywhere like in those inflatable raft things.

u/seanlax5 · 2 pointsr/pics

You can get an inflatable one for <$100 to see if you actually like it. I've had this one for 3 years and I still use it!

u/user3915 · 2 pointsr/Kayaking

Looks like this might be it: Intex Challenger K1 Kayak

u/sexual_orientation · 2 pointsr/Kayaking

Gonna go ahead and recommend a much cheaper option- the Intex Challenger K1. It's a surprisingly great little inflatable and packs up pretty well, with a $70 price tag to boot. I used mine for two summers on some calm lakes and rivers and never had an issue with leaking. In my opinion, definitely the best budget option for someone just tipping their toes in kayaking.

I have [this kayak] ( from Amazon. It's ~$60 and works pretty well, just annoying to inflate and deflate. Pretty compact though

u/sports_undelete · 1 pointr/sports_undelete

>As the title states, I currently live in an apartment with very limited storage space for a kayak. My options for storage - in order of least feasible to most feasible - are my apartment (safe but up 3 flights of stairs), my apartment building's shared basement (half a flight down, but can be accessed by all tenants), the "backyard" area behind my building (no stairs but can be accessed by anyone), and my car (crossover-sized).
>I have been using this inflatable for the past year and a half, and it's been a great solution to my storage problem since I can keep it in the trunk of my car/my apartment. I used it about once a week last summer and it's held up decently well. I'm looking to upgrade it to a non-inflatable, though, as the tracking is pretty bad, I can't take it to any larger lakes, I get nervous about popping around rocks and branches, etc. My tandem K2 is also kind of of impractical because I use it by myself 90% of the time, which makes the tracking even worse. (I originally bought it to use occasionally with friends, but I've found that I like taking it out by myself a lot).
>I've been looking at the 8 ft Pelicans and Sun Dolphins, since they're short and light. I know that they're supposed to be pretty shitty, though, and I'm open to spending more than they cost. Another option could be to get the one-person version of the same inflatable which hopefully would have slightly better tracking. The other thing I've considered is buying a modular kayak, but I was really hoping on staying under $500.
>Would it be possible to get a hard kayak with these limitations or do you think I should just stick with my inflatable? Are modular kayaks really worth the cost? Thank you!

LOL that movie has made me salty as all hell. My favorite hike was dry creek falls because you hardly ever saw anyone else there on a hot day (they all used to go to Oneonta because you wade through cool water the whole way or one of the ones that has lots of streams to dip in and stuff) and it's RIGHT at the bridge of the gods, where the movie ends. GUESS WHICH TRAIL SUCKS NOW.

The kayaks are made of a really thick vinyl, much sturdier than I expected (I share your inflatable mattress pain, can't tell you how many of those we've gone through out camping). We haven't gone over any sharp rocks as far as I know but I have been dragged along the bottom of Scappoose Bay for about 60ft and didn't so much as lose the rudder. We have used them in rivers too, they're great. There are reviews of the particular model we bought (with picture evidence) by people saying they take their dogs out in them no problem. We love ours, we only have a small car with no roof rack so it's ideal for us to be able to toss them in the trunk and go. :)

u/Raspberry-FI · 1 pointr/financialindependence

I have similar inflatable one off of amazon and it work pretty well at $65. It pays for itself after a couple uses if your renting it.

u/Internet151 · 1 pointr/shreveport

Here's a pretty good one for only 70 bucks. I'm almost tempted to get one lol.

u/FerociousFrizzlyBear · 1 pointr/nova

Not really answering your question, but if it's just for casual use and not trying to do anything hardcore, or cover a lot of distance, I'd recommend looking into an inflatable kayak.

They take about 5 minutes to pump up, can be used on minor rapids (not too rocky and sharp), handle okay, and best of all, they can be packed down into a bag that fits in any car.

Girlsplaywow is a jerk

You are too kind generous stranger.
Maybe you're not a jerk like you say... maybe. :)

Possibly Both?

If not I'm not picky if you want to pick and choose from my list instead.

u/inquisitivechild · 1 pointr/Kayaking

I just got one of the inflatable ones and freaking love it. The single has 2 chambers and the double has 3. It's pretty tough stuff and as a complete newb, I felt really safe and stable.

Basically, how bad do you want to get on the water?
How much to rent a handful of times vs $60 for a single or $75 for a double. Both with really high reviews.

I love the double because I can just lean back and relax. I'm in Buffalo NY and went down the river and got to the edge of the lake. It got really choppy and I felt exttemely stable and safe.

My friend and I are planning on taking them to Allegheney and kayaking into where we want to camp. 400 lb limit on the double. The two of us went out on it when I first got it, for a total of about 475 lbs and we were able to slowly move along but felt completely safe. It convinced him to by both the single and double.



Guy who went on class 3/4 whitewater on the double:
