I have a coworker that has a Trailblazer and loves it.  How does the Argo compare?  Looking for some rolling that will get used several times a month.

Asked by: PlantLady36
Unfortunately, we have no visibility on in-store inventories. Our products are generally purchased by head offices and sent from their distribution centers through to their stores. We recommend that you use the retailer locator and call them directly for in-store availability details. We only sell our boats through retailers; there is no possibility to buy directly from Pelican.

Looking at the several 120 model series like the Argo XP, Vanquish X, Mustang X, Maverick X. They all use the same deck and hull. Is the Argo the only onle made of RAM-X Premium and the others of standard RAM-X? How does the material differ?

Asked by: Flexvalves
RAMX : regular polyetylene material RAMX PREMIUM : improved polyethylene more rigidity to the plastic, a bit more glossy finish

What is the bottle holder like? I bought this kayak last fall, but I didn't get a bottle holder.

Asked by: jo
The bottle holder is right in the middle of the seat, molded with the kayak.

Is the argo 120xp sea worthy can i take it on the atlantic coast and do coastal kayaking

Asked by: Ryan
This kayak offers great stability and superior tracking. Our kayaks are not made for choppy waters though. It is always best to check the weather prior to planning a day on the water.

My question is . If I can’t by direct and retailers won’t ship a kayak . I’m pretty much out of luck getting a pelican kayak in Missoula, MT. Why buy your product???  

Asked by: Mrgeezer
Our kayaks are not available to buy on our website yet, and the retailers probably have reasons with the pandemic. Although we have a large market of our product on Amazon if it can help! Sorry for the inconvenience.
