Reasons I love this kayak:
- Relatively low cost

- Very maneuverable in still or moving water
- Provides good back support
- Lightweight and easy to carry down to the water
- Comes with everything you need (except life vest)
- Pump provided fills it very quickly
Watch the video below to find out why I rated this kayak a solid 9 out of 10. I show you how easy the Sevylor QuickPak K1 is to unpack, assemble and inflate for use on a still body of water – Watson Lake in Prescott, AZ.
Turn up the volume. Sorry my voice is muffled by the waterproof GoPro camera I used to record the video.
My first river trip with this kayak was on the Verde River in Central Arizona. In the video below I’ll show you how maneuverable it is in moving water and rapids, with lots of obstacles.
This trip gave me an opportunity to test out the durability of the boat. I ran it pretty hard into some tree branches and rocks and it didn’t lose any air at all.
The buoyancy and lightweight design of this craft really makes it easy to transport to the water, whether inflated or not, and up the bank at the end of the run.
