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!
Our new Tucktec kayaks are great! Easy to assemble, disassemble, transport, and clean. They are perfect for us. We are getting out on the water a lot more because it’s so easy! Thank you!!
Amazing kayak. I am able to put it together myself. I use it to fish and is very stable even without the stabilizer. Very comfortable with back support. Very roomy! I am able to carry all of my fishing gear with no issues. Love this kayak!!!
Tucktec staff responded promptly to my email. The online video was helpful in folding my kayak for the first time. As soon as I got in and paddled out on the lake, it felt stable and was easy to maneuver. Overall I am quite impressed.
After a little bit of a wait we finally received our kayaks but unfortunately were not able to use them right away. The first time putting them together was a bit difficult but thankfully each time did get a little easier. Our maiden voyage was a success and we really enjoyed them. They worked great! Can't wait to go again. I really like how easy it is to transport and store them.
It is quite physical to fold it up into kayak and also back to a package. I have the green 10’ one and it seems the material is different than the orange one. The foot bar is not staying in on the middle setting. It feels more like a canoe and it can fit two coonhounds with me (together about 250lb) then sides are maybe 4” above the water. Better not to break the rudder, without it it doesn’t go very strait with that weight. Overall, it is exactly what I expected and nothing more. I'm glad I have it. Thank you.
I love the new kayaks and especially love the way that they track. The stabilizers on the side are awesome and easy to pop on. Thank you Tucktec!!!
Love being able to fit this in my back seat. Easier than I expected to get it on the water.

Easier to assemble than I thought-first time a bit difficult but watching their video helps a lot
