It is always a challenge for any brand to better the success of a popular product. When it’s something that has been a runaway hit, the challenge only gets compounded. Sea Eagle made a revelation of sorts with the SE 330, which became the most popular inflatable Kayak in the United States in no time.
The 330 was just perfect for so many reasons. It had an entry-level price tag making it ideal for the noobs, it weighed just 26 lbs when deflated and had a weight capacity of 500 lbs. Packs into the trunk of your car and tracks like a beast in the waters.
Well, Sea Eagle just decided to make it better with the SE 370. This successor to the 330 is a beefier inflatable with more room than what you’d ever want and a bevy of accessories which make life simpler in the water.
Roomy and durable
Portability and ease-of-use have always been at the forefront of Sea Eagle’s features. The 370 is no different. Weighing just 6 lbs more than the 330, it is a breeze to carry and even sports its own tote bag. Just haul it till the trunk or your car or a corner of your RV and it will fit right in.
You can easily inflate it yourself with the foot pump provided in the package. It inflates into a 12.5 feet kayak with a 10.8 feet cockpit that is perfect for 3 people or for all the things you’d need for a weekend on the waters. Oh, you can also get your pooch along to give you company while you snag em fishes.
The construction is top notch. This one is built to last forever and with proper care, you are looking at more than 15 years of trouble free performance. Both, the hull and the interior are crafted from tough and durable polykrylar which prevents a jagged edge from ripping a hole and cutting short your trip.
An I-beam floor adds stability while the two skegs make tracking almost identical to that of a hard-shell kayak. The control and maneuvers are deft.
On a rainy day, self-bailing drain valves keep the water out of the kayak without any effort.
Ideal for recreational paddling or as a tandem kayak
On a class II, the 370 works like a charm. So, you can be rest assured that it will work like a dream boat on calm waters.
Despite being an entry-level kayak, the Sea Eagle 370 is a very versatile one that can be used for recreation, fishing or for learning the ropes as a novice. The tracking is decent enough to allow you to hone your skills in the water and the durable construction ensures that it can sustain shallow waters without even a single tear.
The spacious cockpit also makes it perfect for tandem kayaking.
The Pro Package
The Sea Eagle 370 pro package includes two storage bags and two high-backrest seats in addition to the regular package inclusions, the foot pump, the tote bag, a repair kit, lash down spray skirts for the stern and bow and two aluminum paddles.
One of the perks of opting for the pro package is that there is a marked difference in quality in the paddles supplied with it and the ones supplied with the deluxe package. The paddles in the pro package are of slightly better quality, a thought mirrored by several customers who have used both the kits.
Also, the high backrest seats offer much better lumbar support, especially on longer kayaking trips.
