Inflatable Kayak Review – Sea Eagle 370 Inflatable Kayak
By Sabrina Marx
Hello my paddling friends and welcome back for part two of my Sea Eagle sport kayak summary reviews. There are 2 inflatable kayaks that are labeled “sport” kayaks by Sea Eagle. They are essentially the same design, but come in 2 different sizes. In this installment, we will explore the Sea Eagle 370 Inflatable Kayak.
The Sea Eagle 370 inflatable kayak is slightly larger than the Sea Eagle 330 that I reviewed last week. The 370 is 12 foot 2 inches long, compared to the 330, which is 11 feet 2 inches long. That extra foot of length results in the paddlers having more leg room. Just like the Sea Eagle 330, this kayak also comes in a deluxe and pro package version. The difference between the two packages is the seats. The seats in the pro package are taller than those in the deluxe package, much better for back support.
Both the deluxe and pro packages received rave reviews consistently on Amazon.com. Here is my “plus” and “minus” lists …
Sea Eagle 370 Inflatable Kayak “Plus” List:
Holds up to 650 lbs
Easy to inflate with foot pump, electric pumps aren’t necessary.
7 one way valves to allow for quicker inflation
Comes with carrying case, pressure gauge and repair kit
Very stable, nearly impossible to tip
Good value for the money, complete package, no additional accessories to buy
Sea Eagle 370 Inflatable Kayak “Minus” List:
A bit difficult to get back into the carry bag (need to roll kayak very tight to get back in properly)
Better suited for slower waters as it can be difficult to handle in windy weather
Paddles may bend a bit if trying to go to fast through a current
Tracking leaves a little to be desired
Inflatable Kayak Review Summary:
All in all, consumers loved this inflatable boat. Many reported that it seemed as though the Sea Eagle 370 is practically impossible to tip, but if you are new to using inflatable kayaks then you may want to take it slow when starting out. A few reviewers recommended that if you are a beginner or kayaking alone in the Sea Eagle 370 and you run into windy weather, you should sit in the center of the boat. They further explained that doing so would help you handle the boat with ease.
Those who rated the Sea Eagle 370 felt it was a great boat for families, as it can hold all body types and carry a total of 650lbs. As far as inflatable kayaks go, this appears by the reviews to be a sturdy and stable choice.
It’s quite rare that I find a product so widely recommended. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the information and comments on the Sea Eagle 370 because they were positive and upbeat with minimal to no complaints.
That about does it for me and my summary review of the Sea Eagle 370 inflatable kayak. Don’t forget to bookmark this site and visit us next week when I will be reviewing the Innova Sunny.
Until then…. keep your paddle in the water and your butt in the boat!
