More Detailed Info

The Aire Outfitter II is the two person version of the Outfitter I. This inflatable kayak is a great choice for beginner to novice kayakers who want a lot of stability in the whitewater rapids.

The Aire Outfitter was designed for commercial outfitters who want to offer their customers a whitewater kayak that is completely safe and secure – in other words… no one will end up in the water swimming.

The fact that it was built for so much stability basically means that it was not built for absolute performance and maneuverability.

Therefore intermediate to advanced whitewater kayakers may get a bit frustrated with this kayak, but beginners will love it.

The Outiftter II weighs forty-six pounds which is fairly light for a tandem model. It can easily be carried by two people and is still light enough to take traveling if needed.

For more information on the Outfitter II please read our review for the Aire Outfitter I as they are the virtually the same kayak except for size and weight.

Final Thoughts

If stability and top notch quality are your main concern, then the Aire Outfitter II makes a fantastic choice.

It is particularly great for families, brand new whitewater kayakers, fishing and fun all-day river adventures.

With a 10 year warranty, if your skill level outgrows this kayak, you can likely resell it for a good price and upgrade to a higher performance whitewater inflatable kayak.
