I am a small 5’1, 115 lb woman so when my ex left I found myself very limited since I don’t have roof racks or the physical strength to maneuver my big kayak. This gives me the freedom to kayak whenever I please and get back to my favorite pastime!
It took 4 months to come in. With Covid and the crazy world, this isn’t great but it’s to be expected. I work in manufacturing so I understand the difficulty with supply-chain issues. The first time folding is difficult but after folding all of the seams a couple of times it gets much easier. I didn’t time myself but I have no complaints with the time it takes (took longer to load/unload my old one safely from racks with help). It’s very wide so it’s stable but not the fastest. Great for a calm lake or river. Easy to maneuver since it’s so light. The seat I got only has one seat cushion and the back, I might add some more cushion at some point. I had to keep adjusting the strap for the back of the seat as it stretched throughout my first ride but there is plenty of adjustability in the strap.
So far I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you tucktec.
Glad you are enjoying your Tucktec! Thanks for the review!
Great tech t-shirt, and a good way to show off that Tucktec pride! It was a little big on me since I didn't think and asked for a medium. Are the shirts only in mens sizing? No biggie though, I still love it! Thanks!
My brother and I got the folding kayak and paddle for our mom’s 65th birthday and she was so happy to receive it! It’s easy enough for her to load up in the car and take out for the day. Putting it together and folding it up is easy and the blue color is beautiful!
It's still winter
Good ! When weather warmer and hand healed from surgery definitely trying it out!
ask again in May
I will suggest this to my daughter. They looked nice to me. She will be paddling.
Really hold up well and is a lot easier to install then I would have thought. I posted a assembly video on my Instagram @auggie_hoggie_official. Cant wait to take it out again

I’m 66 and can’t lift a regular kayak on top of my car by myself and don’t have any storage space for it. Looked into foldable’s, read many reviews and thought Tucktec was the best choice - AND, It was. Amazing stability, ease of getting into it, fishing and all the above from a flat piece of special plastic folded together. Who would’ve thought. I highly recommend!!!
The paddle, on the other hand, wasn’t great. Just found out they redesigned and are sending me a new one. This is a one of a kind company that really cares about their customers. Thanks Tucktec.
So far its great! Easy to set up, compact and portable. I've had it out about 6 times and I'm pleased with it.
Really like them not a bulky profile!
I purchased these kayaks as a gift. Of course, I wanted to get in on the fun, so I bought two of them. The rainy weather has made it difficult to take them out, but I put them together and they surpassed the set up test. Not difficult at all to assemble and the material seems extremely durable.
Kayak is amazing I use it in relatively calm bay water here in sarasota. Works perfectly. Paddles are cheap at $35, but I would pass. I broke one first outing. Replaced immediately w no questions. But better to spend 75 or so for proper paddles. I wil prob buy 2 more kayaks in future though. Great product.
I think it’s more stable but it’s not incredibly noticeable
So far I am happy. I haven’t been able to take the kayak out yet because of the cold weather but I did practice folding and unfolding and it seems fairly easy. The light weight is great too.
Everything is still in the box
My wife, Diane and i are looking to using your Kayaks for Spring-time fishing in addition to crabbing from late summer through fall. Thanks, Bill Lackner
We gave this to my son for Christmas as it was what he said he liked. He was very happy.
I will use this product once winter has ended and it is warm enough in Virginia to use the kayak.
The ingenuity of the #Tucktec is amazing. My husband and I bought two. We've used them 4 times so far and they have absolutely delivered what they promise. The creators of this kayak are genius in my opinion. What I love ... I can carry, assemble and fold it without assistance. Oh AND it is made in the USA . love. We are looking forward to many hours of enjoyment with our yaks! Thank you #Tucktec geniuses.

I am not taken it to water until June
I decided to buy a second Tucktec for a friend for Christmas. It sat wrapped for several days before she finally opened it. Upon inspection I discovered the refurb to be in great condition. I had also ordered a couple sets of stabilizers and they went on very easily as well. Delivery was 2 days to Wisconsin. I could not be happier with my purchase. The only thing different was that there was no gear bar for this one. I do kind of enjoy the gear bar. Perhaps I'll put an order in for one when we get closer to warmer weather. Thanks Tucktec!
