Sevylor QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak Review

Sevylor quickpack sit on top kayakThere’s something about the inflatable products that we really love. May be, it’s the ability to make things possible even in situations that have less scope for it.

Let’s take for example, the Sevylor QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak. If someone lives in a cramped apartment yet dreams of owning a kayak that he could take with him on weekend surfing trips then lack of space to store a kayak may force him to give up his dream.

Thanks to the new range of inflatable kayaks that can be folded and stored inside a backpack when not in use. So, you can actually keep it in any corner of your apartment, until the right time arrives to pump it up with air, seal and get going!

Now, that we know that the Sevylor QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak is not our everyday kayak, but an inflatable boat, let’s find out more about its features, advantages and disadvantages. If you have been thinking of buying an inflatable kayak then this review will be help you.

The Sevylor Quikpak K1 is described as the quick ‘grab and go’ kayak by its manufacturer. Sevylor is the world’s leading manufacturer of innovative water inflatables and they offer a wide range of canoes, kayaks, puddle jumper, fishing boats, SUP, tenders, diving and accessories. They have a simple objective to make affordable products that encourage everyone to get outside and have fun.

When fully inflated, the boat has a total length of 7 feet and it weighs about 28 pounds. It can accommodate one person in the boat and support a total weight of 400 pounds. We found the dimensions impressive and it is no way compromised when compared to regular kayaks.

This is a one person kayak and as per the manufacturer it takes five minutes to set up. However when we tried we found that it took slightly more than 5 minutes to get fully inflated, hence we would say it takes about 5-10 minutes to set up the kayak and make it ready for the water.

If you are wondering about leakages given the fact that this is an inflatable boat, let me tell you that it comes with an Airtight system which guarantees that there will be no leaks. There are tracking fins for better maneuverability.

The kayak is made from polyethylene material which adds durability and strength to it. More than anything else, the fact that it comes from the home of Sevylor automatically adds reliability to the product. We also like the blue colors, extra points for that!

The QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak comes with an air pump and paddle which makes it a complete product. The air pump is good enough so you don’t need an extra battery operated pump, in case you are wondering.  It comes with a cup holder for you to carry essentials for a short fishing trip.

Features:

  • It is a ‘grab and go’ inflatable kayak
  • It is made from polyethylene material
  • The dimensions are 9.5 x 17.25 x 31 inches
  • It takes 5-10 minutes to fully inflate the kayak
  • The kayak can hold up to 400 lbs weight
  • It is meant for a single person ride
  • Airtight system to prevent any leakage

Pros:

The QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak can be inflated independently using the provided air pump and your kayak will be ready within 10 minutes.

It can be deflated and rolled back into a backpack, so it is a perfect product for those living in city apartments yet dream of owning a kayak.

This is a stable and good kayak you can use in mild rivers and lakes. It offers hours of fun at a great price.

The seat comes with a back cushion that gives support to your lower back so you don’t get worn out after a fishing trip.

Performance wise, we were impressed with how well it sailed on water.

Cons:

The instruction manual is not clear and it includes poor diagrams that make it difficult to understand. The saving grace is that you don’t need too much of instructions after all. It’s pretty easy to understand what needs to be done.

The backpack system is good, but a little complicated. We wish it was easier to put the thing back into the bag.

The paddle that comes with the product is not up to mark, so we would suggest that you get a better quality paddle. However, we can’t complain as we get what we pay for!

Verdict:

We would recommend the Sevylor QuickPak Coverless Sit-On-Top Kayak to all those looking for hours of outdoor fun in the water. Living in a small apartment need no more come in your way of owning a nice kayak you can grab and go to the lake for fishing or sailing. Just pump it up and you are good to go!
