I have been quite impressed with my Sea Eagle 420x. I have used it on lakes, ocean, and rivers, and it has performed well in all environments.
I used it on a recent trip on the Powell River Canoe Route in British Columbia where we paddled a series of lakes and portaged between them. At 42 lbs. it was easy to portage, and paddled well.show full review ▼
We also recently ran a whitewater section of the Clackamas River in Oregon, and I was very impressed with how well it handled hitting rocks and dragging over gravel bars. I fully expected to see some damage on the bottom at the end of the trip, but there was none!
The size of the deflated boat is small enough to carry in the trunk of my Toyota Camry with room to spare. The foot pump inflates the 3 chambers very quickly, and the quick release valves allows it to be deflated and put away quickly too.

Great boat. Light, stable, strong, fun. No complaints.
Our first journey out with the Sea Eagle 420x. Had a blast on Taylor Lake (near Etna Summit, CA). I'm a big guy at 6'00" and 290 LBS and this yak wasn't even near at drawing water...very buoyant! My 13 year old daughter was able to stand up on it and use it as a paddle board...very stable! Only problem we had (no fault of Sea Eagles) was that we decided to haul our new 420x and two other sit on top kayaks the 1/4 mile from the trailhead to the lake. It was quite a task but well worth it as we had the lake to ourselves. Today was our first outing and so far, so good!
I can't say enough positive things about this kayak - it is truly amazing! Living as we do in Nova Scotia ("Canada's Ocean Playground"), there is no shortage of places to kayak. One of the downsides to kayaking has always been transportability, and being in our late 50s, trying to get kayaks on and off vehicles wasn't appealing. Then along comes Sea Eagle.show full review ▼
The photo shows our Mercedes-Benz Smart Car with the 420X + all the gear required for a day (or more) of kayaking - talk about transportable! The kayak behaves extremely well, even with wind, and the removable skeg is awesome. I wasn't sure if the 420X might've been too much for two people; however, it is very comfortable, even with a full load. Even with one person, it is easily controllable. Talk about fun!
Nova Scotia has over 3000 lakes + hundreds of streams and rivers, not to mention being a sea kayakers paradise with 13,300 kilometers of coastline. We're going to hit them all with this rig! :-)
Well beyond expectations.
Me and my dog (Ozzy The Wonder-Pup) are riders of motorcycles and do not own a car. We needed an inflatable that would allow us to explore the many rivers of Montana and the Pacific Northwest... One of exceptional quality (that would last for years) and uncompromising durability to get us through the FUN STUFF.show full review ▼
The Sea Eagle 420X has exceeded our expectations in every way. Class III stuff on the Blackfoot River was a breeze in the 420X. We are looking forward to some more challenging foats on the Clark Fork (Alberton Gorge), Klickitat, Deschutes, and the Clackamas. We are confident that the 420X will continue to deliver.
Happy Floating WOOF!
Absolutely a fantastic boat. Very well made from high quality, professional grade materials and the accessories that came with the pro carbon package were top notch. The 420x is also a huge hit with the family on lake and beach vacations. All my little nieces can't stay off the thing! Thank you Sea Eagle! I will definitely be a return customer. :)
As an owner of a 420x I am very satisfied with the product. It is covering all my expectations for kayaking on lakes, rivers or in the sea.
The quality is very good.
One point to enhance the kayak could be a drainage on the rear for a more easy cleaning after use.
The order and delivery time was as promised and expected, and the customer service helped me being in Argentina when I have some issues with the local custom.show full review ▼
Portability it is one of the biggest goals and one of my main points along with store-ability when electing this type of kayaks.
I did not have to use the 3 year warranty.
For sure I will buy it again and every time I have the chance I recommend this SeaEagle product.
Exactly what I needed for the rivers and lakes in Colorado. I could not be happier. Very solid and stable, love the floor..Howard
