The Sea Eagle 420x Explorer inflatable kayak is as tough as nails and as rugged as the men and women who ride in it. A handy large kayak that holds two to three adults and up to 855 pounds, the 420x 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 420x.
Unlike ordinary "dry-only" kayaks with no drains or "wet-only" kayaks with permanently open drains, the 420x 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 420x still floats.
The 420x 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 420x Explorer measures 168 by 37 inches (W x L) and weighs 54 pounds. It's also backed by a three-year warranty.
