So...the boat is very much as marketed, except for one important fact that any user has to be told. It CAN be punctured by random pointed objects. It does stand up well to abrasion and banging around through a creek or such, but the toughness of the fabrics seems to be in the fiber reinforcement. The rubber itself can be poked through by small sharp objects. We have had two pin hole punctures in about 18 months...one from the tine of a wedding ring and one from an unknow source. We dont fish in the boat and we always carry (not drag) in and out of the water. Good news is the rubber is very patchable and the included patch kit works quite well including matching fabrics so your boat doesn't look rag tag after repair. But be aware you really do need to carry either the emergency patches... or the full patch kit...and a pump if you plan to be far from your starting point. Also good news...the boat stays pretty darn stable even if a tube is partly deflated.
This is a very nice kayak. It is very stable on the water. It paddles straight without effort. We also purchased another pump with a pressure gauge from SeaEagle well worth the extra 50$.
We purchased our kayak 385ft Fast Track 12/2020. We are very happy with its performance. It is very easy to maneuver and setup. It takes us about 15 min overall. My husband and I are 68 and 62 yrs old that like to travel the country. We take this in our tow vehicle that is behind our 35ft motorhome. We have not had to use customer service yet because we have not had any problems with it. We had a wait time for our delivery because of the pandemic, however we was impressed that we got it sooner than expected. We have many people ask us how we like it when we are setting it up and we always highly recommend it. I do not want to tip the kayak, so I feel it is very stable. That was one of the reasons we purchased this model, for its stability. A 3 year guarantee is also a great feature. The cleanup and dry time is pretty easy. Like anything, if you make sure it is dry when you pack it up, it should last a long time. I feel the quality is excellent. We upgraded the seats and I am very glad we did.
I have been using the sea eagle 385 fasttrack since November. I chose it because I thought it would work well for biyaking. It has allowed me to haul the kayak in a Travoy folding bike cart towed by a Fiido 4S folding ebike. I can now go kayaking whereever I can pedal to, launch with the cart and folding ebike in the kayak, and then land wherever I can pedal from. I love the fact that I can now carry my tow vehicle with me. I am from a one car household and this allows me to kayak all day without having to tie up the car all day. I have used it to kayak on Lake Crescent and Lake Sutherland on the Olympic Pennisula. Additionally I have used it to kayak on Dungeness, Sequim and Discovery bay. I plan to use it on river treks also. I am very satisfied with the kayak. I bought the Flexbrace foot holds. This makes long paddles much more enjoyable.
