WOW. I was skeptical about whether an inflatable kayak could satisfy my needs, but the people at SeaEagle have developed one awesome product. As an older (and kind of small) woman, lifting a regular kayak on to my German motor sport car seemed like a possible, and quite expensive, disaster. Today I pu this inflatable kayak in the river for the first time, and it was a fabulous experience. It inflated rapidly, even with the hand pump, and it handles as well as some kevlar I have piloted. The people I was with looked at me kind of funny while I was inflating it, but when I glided past them and their plastic "tubs" in the water, they all wanted to know where they could get one!

Received my boat on 1/7/16, a day earlier than scheduled. Customer service, purchase and shipping notification process were great. On morning of Saturday the 9th, with very light rain, launched from a dock at Ventura marina. Age 77, am retired Navy and manufacturing, I'm used to a SUP board and cycling. I found the RazorLite to be quite stable from the outset. Speed-wise, I was faster than folks walking at a good clip. No hard shells with which to compare. Tracking was outstanding ... straight as an arrow whether padding or "coasting." After an hour of padding in the harbor, I headed for the open sea. Encountered wakes from large fishing vessels and purposely hit them nose in and angled. Some pitch and yaw, but easy to retain balance and remain in control. There was slight to medium chop once out of the harbor. I had to work against the tide a bit reentering but with very little difficulty.

my kayak arrived in a timely manner. I am most happy with its performance not tippy for what it is it's fast enough. Very maneuverable, Folds down to a small enough package that I can take it along on my Motorcycle. I am considering buying another Kayak the 380.

One of the best purchases I've made in years. Every time I went out this summer and fall people would stop to ask about it and were amazed how how simple it was to inflate/deflate/stow and carry. Please treat yourself right and upgrade to the lightest paddle. The seat is comfortable with plenty of storage on the back and easy to adjust while in the kayak if needed. My dog Pirate always looks forward to going for a ride. Thank you for this design!

Truly love this boat! Had it almost a year now, and I've really been getting my money's worth out of it. It's so comfortable... I call it the "floating La Z Boy". I can slouch with my feet up on the sides, or dangling in the water with no loss of stability. Will buy from Sea Eagle again!

We purchased two 393rl in late June 2015 and have been happy with their performance thus far. This is our first flat water kayak so we can't compare them to a hard shell kayak, we wanted an inflatable for the convenience of using a smaller vehicle to transport them and to store them with limited space. The kayak was fairly stable while getting in, making sure to keep weight centered/balanced. We have taken them out a half dozen times, all of which had low to high winds.

I bought a RazorLite 393rl at the end of 2014. Wasn't expecting to be able to take it out before March, but we're having a surprisingly mild February in the Rockies. I've taken the boat out twice: once for a couple of hours, the second time for four hours. I am 57 years old, 5'10", 185 lbs. I also own a Sea Eagle FastTrack 365 (original model), a Pathfinder IK, and a Native Watercraft Inuit 14.5 rotomolded kayak. Here are some initial impressions of the RazorLite.
