AQUAGLIDES CHELAN: THE ULTIMATE LUXURY TOURING KAYAK

The Chelan from Aquaglide is the best inflatable kayak on the market overall according to Popular Mechanics Mag! It's super versatility and unique blend of stability and portability shone through. Along with how well it glides through the water with speed, gave it the best overall award. 

This kayak performs like a hard shell but has the added benefit of packing down small so you can travel with ease - so small in fact it can travel with you in the car rather than strapped to the top.

The Chelan comes in three different sizes, which is perfect whether you want it for solo missions, or if you want to add an extra seat you can go up a size, and again if you want to fit in a seat for a child, there are so many options available. There is also ample room in the hull for all your belongings that you might wish to take along with you on your adventures. 

The Chelan is a premium product and so you can be sure it will perform to your expectations and beyond. It has a unique combination of rugged Duratex™ tube construction along with a drop-stitch, hard-bottom floor, which results in a rigid and responsive open cockpit inflatable kayak.

You can be sure to take this kayak anywhere you like, go wild!

What Is Kayak Touring?

What is kayak touring you ask?

Essentially it is taking your kayak out for a cruise, this can be for a couple of hours or for a multi day adventure either on your own or with friends. It really just about getting out on the water. 

What does kayak touring mean? In its simplest form kayak touring is simply taking your kayak out on the water.

IS AN INFLATABLE KAYAK SUSTAINABLE?

It's no secret the materials used in inflatable products are perhaps not the most environmentally friendly, but used correctly, and built to last, there can be a sustainable solution.

We asked Aquaglide, one of the top brands globally to give us the run down on how they aim towards a more sustainable brand.

--- 

At Aquaglide, we build products that are designed to get folks outside in nature. To say outdoor spaces are at the core of everything we do is an understatement. Unfortunately, human-induced climate change threatens the places we love so dearly – and as a team of passionate paddlers and outdoorspeople, we could no longer wait to take action. So over the past year, we have rebuilt the mission of Aquaglide to focus not only on paddlers and people – but also, the planet. We are a small team, but aim to take every step we can to limit our negative impact and maximize our positive change. By doing so, we hope to inspire others within our community to become advocates for our natural spaces along the way.
