UNBELIEVABLY Rugged: HIGH-PRESSURE FABRIC FOR OUR HIGH-PERFORMANCE BOATS
We use high-pressure fabric for our high-performance Explorer Kayaks, FastTrack Kayaks, PaddleSkis, Frameless Pontoon Boat, FoldCats, SailCat, Yacht Tender, and Sport Runabouts. The 1,000 denier woven base cloth gives tremendous strength and the PVC coating on both sides creates a waterproof, air-tight seal.
The triple-layer POWER of 1,000 Denier, Reinforced, High-Pressure Fabric:
Tough-as-nails Supported Fabric – Our tightly-woven base cloth is coated with several layers of a special polymer then fed through rollers under great pressure to force the coatings into the fabric creating a solid, waterproof, very tough material.
Omnidirectional Strength – Our high-performance boats can endure severe impact with sharp objects without puncturing. The fabric isn’t just tough; it has equal tear-resistance in all directions.
Quadruple Overlap Seams – We overlap all main seams with an additional layer of material above AND below for a total of 4 layers. At 36 mil each, the 4 layers together are nearly 144 mil thick — thicker than most other inflatables.
Long life additives – Our 1,000 denier high performance fabric is formulated with special additives to guarantee long term resistance to ultraviolet (UV) rays, gasoline, oil, and other chemicals.
Sea Eagle Fast Track Pro is amazing - sturdy, great tracking - who says an inflatable kayak isn't 'serious'? THESE ARE - they rival any others when you want something truly 'portable' - you can even sail with it and take it on an airplane. This is no toy. This is the highest end inflatable kayak in the world!

Last summer went to Crotch Lake in Ontario, Canada. Was loaded with all my camping equipment and food for four days. Had no problem with heavy load plus my 220 lbs. Was drifting along a narrow inlet at dusk and saw a beaver swimming along bank. He suddenly saw me and turned sharply right for me. Must have thought I was a big log. I started to paddle and he dove and did his tail slapping thing and left me alone. The FastTrack is fast to set up and very stable. I am 66 now and have a lot of kayak camping experience.

I paddled my Sea Eagle 385FT 530 km (329 miles) from one side of southern France to the other! Took 17 days (as I was in no real hurry)! It is a brilliant kayak and I really don't know of any other kayak that could have done what I asked of it! This 385FT is the best inflatable I have owned and simply inspires confidence and trust, BRILLIANT! (you can thank the YouTube Sea Eagle Torture Test video (http://youtu.be/ardGNdwZ0aQ) for many many sales !!) This trip across France was done to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

I have towed my FastTrack 385 behind my bike to the one of the lakes above Mammoth Lakes CA. I traveled about 10 miles with it and gained about 700 feet. This kayak is very light and not too hard to pull like this. I’ve been able to get up to 20 MPH on flat ground.
