I ordered two of these, one for my granddaughters birthday and the other for myself. Many Thanks to the guys at the shop for making it possible for her to get a pink one. Then Before our first use my 9yo granddaughter had an accident and required a full leg cast (she will be fine soon). But we needed to see if she could get in and out of the kayak with the cast on, so we tested her in the swimming pool. She didn’t have any problem at all! Got right in with someone holding it still for her. Both granddaughters are very excited to explore Cape Cod in the kayaks this summer vacation. Thanks Tucktec, for building a great product and making it convenient to bring on vacation. Your customer service is the best, I had a question, and received a response within hours of sending photos. It’s so nice to buy from a company that supports its product and answers the phone in person.
I LOVE my kayak!! Perfect for me to carry & transport to the lake!! It’s perfect!!
I also purchased a 240cm paddle which makes it easier to paddle!!
Love these. Bought 2 in Spring 2021. Have used them a couple times a week - so easy to put together and I'm a 5 ft, 57yo female - healthy but not super fit!
Few tips :
We found the seat tended to slide a bit of you braced yourself with foot rest as you paddled even with the strap tight but we used the carrying handle shortened to appropriate length clipped to the strap metal rectangular metal "slots" on the base of the kayak and around the back of the seat. Kept it from slipping back! Also we added some padding to the handle slots that are cut outs at the front and rear of the kayak from car steering wheel circular replacement pad, cut into pieces and glued or sewn around the narrow part. 👍Now they are really perfect!
I broke into water today
To find me alone in the water again.
To discover what beauty means to me,
To feel home in the water gain,
I broke into water today.
65 years ago, I broke out of water
To see the world.
Today, I broke into water again
To find who I am,
To know what I do.
This 66-year-old great grandmother is able to put this together, canoe for the day, And then unfold it. I live in an apartment so this was perfect. It has been sitting in my closet since February. But now it’s going to be out at least a few times a week. Believe the suggestion when they say let it warm up and sit in the sun to fold it. It is difficult in the beginning but it gets easier each time you do it. I was trying to add pictures but it wouldn’t let me.
I bought mine last month & LOVE it!! I’m limited in lifting a regular kayak so this is perfect!! I only kayak on calm waters, so this is perfect for me!! Easy to put together!! Wd recommend to everyone!!
We received our kayaks at 6 p.m. and we loaded the car straight away and headed to the lake.
We have watched the videos many times and put ours together with out a hitch in about 10 minutes each kayak.
They act and work and feel exactly as described. Stiff on the water. Smooth gliding on glass this evening the lake was just perfect. We received lots of looks and comments from other folks paddling around.
We love them. In the car trunk they go and both fit.
They fit our apt. and lifestyle perfectly. We are older and just cannot spend the day paddling after lugging hard kayaks around, we tried it for one summer and no thank you.
Tucktecs rock our world!
I've taken my tucktec out a couple of times now and it's been great! Only took me about 5 and a half minutes to set up the first time and it really is as easy as they say!
Customer service went above and beyond to address any questions and concerns I had. Definitely recommend these kayaks!
I have now been on my third trip with my Tucktec kayak and couldn’t be more happy. I am a fat senior citizen, but I am able to able to carry it to the water and set it up myself. I was worried that being over 225lbs would make the kayak sit low in the water or that it water would get in, but neither happened. It is easy to handle, but sometimes I pay more attention to the pictures I’m taking than where I am going. In fact, my first time out I got entangled in a submerged tree. An inflatable kayak would have sunk but this one only received some scrapes. I love the comfortable adjustable metal frame seat. I never use the foot rest but I like that it can adjust out of my way. I appreciate that every part of this kayak is made in the USA 🇺🇸. Thank you Tucktec!
I ordered 3 kayaks, I submitted the order and sent an email with a request for shipping times, Within 10 min I even had tracking on my order and it will arrive in 1 week ups, great customer service!
So light weight and convenient! Well made a durable. Easily worth 3x what they are asking for.
I ordered the 2 for $650 deal. Free and fast shipping was great. Got my order about a week after placing it. Would have loved for the Red displayed on the website to have been a color option, but we are very satisfied with the Blue and Dark Yellow that we got.
Store easy and are so light compared to hard-shell kayaks.
After watching the instructional video (twice as the handout that was shipped with the kayaks suggested), it took about 15 minutes the very first time. The folds were not cooperating ideally. After leaving it set up for an episode, we rolled both up and set them up again. Much easier and quicker the second time.
After a quick run to a local sporting goods store to pick up lifejackets and paddles, we took them on their maiden voyage this weekend. Set up both in less than 5 minutes.
Got lots of stares and lots of questions. People watched us launch and after seeing we were staying afloat and maneuvering well, we were stopped several times because they wanted to know what kind of kayak we were in, how much they were, and where they could get one.
Found a few shallow spots on the river, but the promise of being as tough as a hard-shell kayak held true and we stayed afloat. Minor cosmetic scratching is all the damage we sustained.
Very satisfied and look forward to when our friends' orders get fulfilled!
Ordered the 2 pack kayak deal on Monday 8 March and received them in rural/remote area of Queensland, Australia on Tuesday 16 March - 8 days @ standard delivery option. Great shop service and delivery channel.
Have over 5K miles paddling in heavy displacement folding kayaks and have worked as an outfitter. Wanted to hike to more lakes. This light displacement folding kayak was the answer. Plus this boat slides down the sand dunes here on the Oregon Coast. Would like to start a Coos Bay Sliders Festival where we slide down the dunes and eat oysters. Agree with another review every time i pull it out to assemble it gets lots of attention. Looking forward to getting some credit for selling in Oregon. Excellent folding boat. Phil Bolger would be proud. Fair Winds....
