Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak. Cant believe how good for the money! Excellent kayak. For a first kayak its am excellent buy and pricepoint, you wount find a better kayak at this price point hands down. The seat is super comfortable, I spend hours on it and I am a beginner, this is my first kayak that I own even though I've been on various models either rented or borrowed from friends. The stability is top notch, maneuverability is excellent as well, no negatives at all honestly, and I can find things to correct fairly quick on most product I buy, but this kayak is perfect on its price range and even when conpared to more expensive kayaks, I paddle with people that have really expensive kayaks, and not even once I had a need to upgrade mine because of x or y reasons. If considering it, buy it. Dont even think about it. Excellent kayak. Thank you Pelican, for an awsome product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Kayak After watching a lot of YouTube videos and reading hundreds of articles i decided on a Pelican kayak and it is everything i want and more. I you like to stay out on the water for an hour or the whole day this is the one you need , the comfort of the seat is excellent . The tracking is very good and you can get it up to a decent speed. Stability is outstanding. Overall an amazing kayak for touring .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough kayak. We bought a set of the 80x for Christmas. After tackling the Linville River and all the rocks in the river, we headed home. One of the kayaks loosened. It fell off the vehicle and got hit by a semi truck. Only damage was road rash, rubber burn and the back handle broke off. Tough kayak. Out grandson would halve been heartbroken. I have an Argo 100X and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Kayak I recently bought this kayak after much research and debating. This is my first ever kayak. I had never even used one before so i was pretty nervous. I have gone out twice with it now and love it! I thought i would feel wobbly in it and i don't at all. We hit some rocks/shallow part and i didn't feel like i was going to tip over once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again I have spent five hours in this kayak on several occasions flat river kayaking. It is about 2x as fast as a canoe and stable. It is easy to enter and exit and takes boat wakes easily.

How about stability,etc for one person to use?

Asked by: yakster
We do not recommend to use a tandem for 1 person. It will not be as stable and the tracking will not be as expected. You would need to add a weight on the empty seat to even out the stability.

Asked by: yakster
The weight should be equivalent to yours, taking into consideration the maximum weight capacity.

There is no shed/boathouse where I can the canoe in the winter, so I'm wondering if the kayak can be stored outside. My cottage is on Rice Lake, Ontario.

Asked by: ashir88
You can cover your kayak with a tarp if it is left outside, we do not recommend to leave it in the water in the summer as it can damage the product. People have left their kayak under their balcony covered with a tarp and have not seen damage to their kayak come Spring. It is also important not to mount anything over it or have it lean up against something else.

Have a new Pelican Argo136XP and have no clue how to pick paddles for this size two person Kayak. Can you give me a recommendation

I weigh 310 pounds, assuming I'm not bringing any gear other than a life jacket, will I be able to operate this Kayak given that the capacity is only 375 pounds?

Asked by: Richard
You should be fine. The closer you come to the Maximum Capacity the lower the boat sits in the water which creates more drag and thus more effort to paddle. Nevertheless, at 82% of overall capacity, you should still get good & decent performance plus, you are well within the limits for safety and security. Have fun out there!
