Space is often at a premium for outdoor adventures. There’s so much to pack and only so much room. The Intex Explorer K2 is a compact, versatile and streamlined kayak that helps ease the space restrictions in wagons, SUVs and campers.
Bright yellow and emblazoned with sport-oriented graphics, the Explorer K2 is made from vinyl and has an inflatable I-beam floor. The flexible, sturdy stern is removable; two adjustable seats with backrests are also inflatable. A grab line and grab handle are located at each end. Two 86-inch aluminum oars, an Intex high-output easy-to-use pump, U.S. Coast Guard I.D. and a repair patch kit are included.
The convenience factor? The kayak’s deflated dimensions are 13 1/2-by-23-by-16 1/4 inches, all nice and tidy in a 35-pound carry bag. When inflated, the watercraft expands to 10 feet, 3 inches-by-36 inches-by-20 inches. The maximum weight capacity is 400 pounds.
