Good review thanks. 1 tip on inflation is to get a small rechargeable pump to do 70% of the grunt work and then just top off with hand pump. It's a quicker less effort setup especially in the heat. We used ours fine with no backbone. We never messed much with the bag, just wrapped folded yak and wra...

We have not used it for camping but in general the convertible has a few of potential storage spaces. Maybe someone has exact measurements of these space but there is room for small bags... Lashed to the top and back decks In between the 2 paddlers (if you don't use the thwart) Behind the rear seat ...

Also consider the type of paddling you'll be doing. We use a small inexpensive digital camera without protection and it never gets wet but we paddle in calm flat waters.

Also consider supplementing the patch kit with some type of emergency "quick repair" method to just get you back to shore. Duct tape or something like Tear-aid product.

Hi JoeyP, I am really surprised they sold you the AirFusion. If you are new to yakking it should have been the Frame model. Because it has more air it is near impossible to flip it (unless you are deliberate doing a hang out with most of your body). If the performance or space is an issue than they...

We store our convertible folded but not inside the bag. Just kind of like a folded package that we wrap cloth straps around and easy to lift it and carry. I assume it's safe? since it's in the same form it would be in the bag except outside on it's own. Of course you still need to keep it in an area...

We find inflatables pretty easy to get in and out of in our 40s. We have a different model kayak (convertible) and we sit in from side at 90 degree angle to let feet drip off and then swing feet over and in. We usually get in along shore in about a foot of water. There are probably other methods tha...

Mike & Sue's Trips on EveryTrail

Hi, not sure if anyone has seen this site called "EveryTrail" but it's pretty cool way to document your kayak trips (as well as hikes and other outdoor activities). It combines your GPS tracks with pictures and embeds it all together onto a map showing your path along with a picture slide show. You ...

Big chambers 1 and 2 - Curious how are they separated?

No problem just curious question how the the 2 big chambers that make up the gray tube in an advanced frame are separated from each other. These are the 2 chambers that we have to inflate 50% between the 2. I'm just trying to visualize it in my mind I guess - if it's left and right or top and bottom...
