The best Inflatable Kayaks and Packboats for Touring

sunnybenderHere’s a comparision table for the best touring inflatable kayaks (and now a packayak) based on the sort of boats this website covers; longer boats with room for gear paddled solo or two-up. To aid clarity, I’ve dropped the five discontinued boats crossed-out below from the table. The links still lead to the original review.
I’ve owned or own a Sunny (similar to 410C), Java, Incept K40 Tasman, a Grabner Amigo, Gumotex Seawave and the MRS Nomad S1, and have tried a Grabner H2. My Nomad packayak
 may be an unconventional choice, but have a read and see what you think. One of these days I’ll get to evaluate a DS kayak. There’s more on other IKs here, some of which could also be contenders.


Not all figures below are verified except for the boats I’ve actually owned or used. In some cases my figures don’t match official data. Click below to enlarge.
