Reviews & Questions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little light weight kayak In 2013, I bought a similar version of the Argo- at that time it was called a Vortex. As an older and shorter woman, I wanted a kayak I could easily lift myself. It also helped that it fit into my smaller hatchback. Even though I have a longer and more expensive kayak, I will not let go of this one. It has held up well and is my go to kayak for spur of the moment paddles. My only complaint is the lack of foot braces, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. A friend installed some aftermarket foot braces and now the kayak is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy for a woman to handle I am only 5 ft tall. I love that I don’t have to ask anyone to help me carry this. It fits inside my SUV, so I don’t have to lift it over my head and strap it down. It is really sturdy. I go out 3-4 times a week. I am so happy.

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.

I’m a 5.4 female with 110 lb weight. I’m not experiential kayaking very much. If I want to buy a kayak it should be based on my weight or height or even both?

Asked by: Fara
We recommend a 10ft kayak for a 5ft and over person. There are a lot a factors when buying a kayak, you have to look a the hull types and features to make sure this kayak respond to your needs. A person that is 6ft and over we would recommend a 12ft kayak. If you want to try our kayak finder, maybe it'll help you make the perfect pick: https://www.pelicansport.com/us_en/kayakfinder

Will this kayak fit someone who is 6' tall?

Asked by: lee
We think it would be too small. Leg space is important. We recommend at least a 10 ft, 12 ft would be even better.

This is my first kayak... I unwrapped the plastic off my Argo 80x. I was inspecting to make sure there was no damage. I noticed on the inside of my 80x underneath the seat nearing the back end of the 80x was styrofoam blocks, Are those essential??

Asked by: NART
We recommend that you do not remove the styrofoam that is visible in the kayak as it acts as extra flotation. This extra flotation styrofoam, if removed, can be replaced with any styrofoam found at your local hardware store. The kayak, without this extra flotation, will still float and perform as it was designed for but will sit lower in the water. Unfortunately, we do not sell replacement foam.

I just bought one of these for a Christmas present. What size paddle should I get for it?? 

Asked by: Delilah
The pelican kayak kid paddle is the perfect choice for the small, first-time paddlers. It is a great fit for little, eager hands. This paddle is metal and phthalate-free. Its three-piece assembly is ideal for compact storage and its kid-sized ribbed blades helps maintain a good tempo on the water. https://www.pelicansport.com/us_en/ps1111-00
