Sea Eagle 380x Explorer Review
Performance of the Sea Eagle 380x Explorer
The Sea Eagle 380x Explorer is marketed as an all-around kayak; one you can easily take on calm waters and on whitewater rafting adventures. Experts tend to agree that this boat more than ticks the boxes it promises in this regard!
Experts agree that this is an impressively robust kayak that will withstand years of regular use without much damage. It reportedly offers a lot of confidence on the water, with many kayakers claiming it’s near-impossible to capsize.
Storage on-board is reportedly fairly impressive, with options for expansion thanks to D-rings along the side. Reviewers love the huge amount of space on board, very roomy for single riders and still comfortable for duos.
Experts also note that it’s surprisingly easy to compact down and carry. It’s noted that the kayak could benefit from extra carry rings when fully inflated, but most riders shouldn’t have problems packing down and carrying via car.
Some note that this kayak tends to perform better on the calm than the choppy, but that it fares well on both. Ultimately, this appears to be a hard-wearing kayak that will easily take the place of having to own two boats for two separate purposes.
