Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!
I’ve had a wonderful experience with Tucktec. I would buy more products from in the future. If you’re in the fence, buy it!! You will only regret not buying it sooner.
I received my yaks very quick. I'm in Alaska and things usually take forever. I ordered 2 of them. Brought the first in from sitting outside in my mudroom, where it's been in the 30's overnight. It was like wrestling an alligator! I was thinking what have I got myself into! The second one I brought in and let it sit in my warm living room for 2 days. World of difference! So much easier to assemble. Once it gets a little warmer I can't wait to get them in the water! Will post another review then.
My Maiden voyage in my Tucktec in the Toronto inner harbor was amazing. Despite the open cockpit no waves from the washes of large speeding boats swamped me as my little Tucktec just bobbed up over them. It's almost as if this little yak has a sense of humor.
I own a small sedan but love being out on the water - Saw the Tucktec and figured I'd give it a try. I cant say enough great things about my experience from buying, using, transporting and contacting customer support. I'm 6'2 and fit very comfortably in the kayak. 10/10 review from me and consider me a lifetime user moving forward. I use the Kayaks for fishing and even caught my largest bass ever on it the other day!
Finally warm enough to take the yak out to the lake. Put the yak together and rolling it up were a struggle but it was only my second time and there is a learning curve. I got the yak out into the lake, she's good. It was a little windy and motor boats and jets skis were out and about. The boat was very stable crossing boat wakes with the mist blowing in my face. I am very happy I made the purchase. Now I just have to arrange my schedule so I have more time to paddle.
Took it out fishing on the lake and it handled great. Easy to set up and tracks well on the water. Very stable. Will be taking it out again soon.
Great functional kayak, floats and handles well and fits into my compact car. Shocked how easy it is to put together and take down, so convenient.
We are enjoying the kayaks, but I have to admit folding the kayaks is not as easy as the video appears. We are having to use a lot more force than expected. I am leaving out in the sun during the day and it is helping and I suspect it will also get easier the more we use them.
I wanted a kayak I could transport, carry and set-up myself. Took the kayak out for its maiden voyage and am very happy with it. Overall comfortable, stable, handled well in calm waters and even on the relative choppiness of the river. I did find I had to change up my usual kayak stroke abit to adapt to the width of the kayak. And I was very impressed with the delivery time - less than 2 weeks into Canada.
Only be able to be out once so far, but it was great. Looking forward to more use this summer.
I love it. It’s only been a week but it seems worth the money so far
Performs exactly as advertised! One of the best things that I've ever bought in my life! I'm getting another one!
Cancelled my origami paddler (due to rated weight 250) in favor of yours at 350.
Merch as described. Packed and shipped with care. Assembly videos were great. The first time it took about 10 mins. The second took about 4 mins.
How about a mesh pocket on the back of the seat.
We love our Tucktec kayaks; when out kayaking, lots of people ask us about our foldable kayaks and how to order them. Ordering our kayaks online to be shipped to us in Canada was super easy and they added the correct duty and taxes online so that we did not have pay duty when they were delivered. We did have to add a new seat with a better back, but the canoe seat that we bought separately fits perfectly. Because the kayak has a simple and elegant design, it is easy to improve and adapt. These kayaks are perfect for beginner and intermediate paddlers. One suggestion, when putting in the gear bar, put it in before you do the last side clamps; it is much easier to line up and insert the bar with one of the back side clamps unfastened. It is challenging inserting the gear bar after closing all four side clamps as shown in the instruction video. Other than that, the instruction video for assembling the kayaks is great and important to follow. Tucktec kayaks are fantastic recreational kayaks that can be stored and transported easily; highly recommend!
While I still need to build a bit of muscle, I appreciate this discounted priced kayak that had been previously folded! Great idea!
