Good Kayak, excessories were troublesome 22 May 2011
By ashlee - Published on
Verified Purchase
so I am writing this review after the maiden voyage with my kayak. the kayak itself is great - it's a nice length, it was comfortable, it inflated pretty easily, and I really love that every part of the 'backpack' becomes part of the kayak when assembled. the accessories, however, are another story. I like that this kayak came with the inflatable hand pump - one less thing for me to purchase. however, the pump comes with several attaments to fit in differently sized valve holes. on this kayak, there are 3 valves - two with large openings, and one with a regular sized opening. one attachment on the pump fits the valve with the regular sized opening perfectly well, no problem. the attachment that is sized to fit in the large valves however, is just a tad bit too small so it goes into the opening, but does not stay in place while you are pumping (so you would literally need to have someone hold it in place). to me, the whole point of an inflatable kayak is that it is an item you can use alone, without needing any help to set it on your car, carrying it, etc. for a quick fix, I took a couple strips of duct tape, and wrapped it around the valve attachment and it did the trick - it fits snuggly in the valve now.

I figured that would be the biggest problem with this purchase, and that would have been fine with me. that was, however, until I was halfway across the bay I was kayaking in, and the paddle that this set came with BROKE IN HALF. one half of the paddle literally sank, and so I was stuck kayaking back to the launch point with only one half of a kayak paddle. not exactly ideal. luckily, I have a good sense of humor, so I laughed about the whole thing, but if you buy this set, take my advice and buy your own paddle and throw the junk that comes with this away. it is not like any other kayak paddle I've seen; instead of coming in two pieces that snap together with a locking button, it came in three segments with 6 couplings to attach the pieces together. that was a problem for a couple reasons - first is that you can't break the paddle down into two symmetrical pieces, so it is harder to tote along in the car. also, the couplings are made of really cheap plastic, so they definitely did not hold up to heavy paddling. the coupling on one end broke mid-stroke, and that end of the paddle fell off and floated away (before sinking). definitely not worth the money they spent to produce it. I don't know why Sevylor didn't just include a normal paddle or none at all, because the one they included was such a waste. I had heard bad things about their paddles, but I wanted to try it out (since again, I figured why spend more money if I didn't have to). if you're intent on trying the paddle out, make sure you use it on a short trip where you have someone standing by for rescue haha.

conclusion is that the kayak is pretty awesome, the pump is mediocre, and the paddle is a piece of junk. all-in-all, still recommended, even though I paid $50 more than it's listed for now!

Excellent Kayak, Okay Accessories 25 July 2011
By Nick - Published on
First-off, I would like to mention that this review may be lengthy, as I just want to cover all the bases and since there are so few reviews for this product, hopefully aid in your decision to purchase it. I recently purchased this kayak for about $226 out the door, and am extremely happy I did. It fits my needs perfectly (I am a college student with an apartment, so storage is limited) and I love that I am able to take it out on the river without the need for a roof-rack or friend to help me carry it and load it. Since I have received the kayak, I have taken it out on the river once for about 3 hours, and it tracked a lot better than I had anticipated. Gentle and controlled paddling will ensure that the vessel will maintain a straight course, and I had no trouble paddling against the current or in the wake of passing boats. This is an inflatable boat, so keep that in mind. But even taking into consideration that it is inflatable, I only experienced a small amount of more sway than I have with hardshells, and it wasn't problematic in the least bit. I even let my friends and family try it out, and they were able to control the kayak with relative ease (considering none of them had kayaked before).

Stability is another area where this kayak shines. This vessel is rather stable, and I rocked pretty hard back and forth while I had it out on the river by my apartment, and found it difficult to even get the edge close to the water level. Additionally, I attempted a reentry into the kayak in open water (be sure to wear a PFD if attempting this), and succeeded with relative ease. The boat rocked minimally as I used my arms to lift myself up, and I was back in and paddling in 15 seconds.

Assembly and breakdown is pretty quick and painless. I had timed myself setting up the kayak and packing packing it away, and I had it from pack to sitting in the seat in 12 minutes, and back into the backpack in 8. I was consciously taking my time to get an accurate time, and was pleasantly surprised to see it took such little time to set up and put away. One gripe I did have, however, was with the directions. They were unclear about how to fold the kayak so it fits properly in the backpack. I have found that folding one side into the middle lengthwise, and then the other side over the first so it covers it works the best. Then just fold up the rear so the skeg is exposed in two folds, and then fold front twice to cover the rear skeg. It should fit perfectly then.

As other users have mentioned before me, the accessories leave much to be desired. The paddle itself seems cheap, and while I understand the three piece design increases portability, I will be purchasing a better paddle this week. The pump's nozzle does not fit very securely while inflating, and while some have used duct tape to solve this problem, I have been able to secure it by sliding one of the notches of the piece of plastic that secures the cap into the nozzle of the pump.

The material on the bottom of the kayak is very heavy-duty, and I had no worries with dragging it to shore over pebbles and rocks. There is more storage than I had anticipated, with a rear well that will hold the pump and some other items. There are plenty of bungees for deck storage as well, and D-Rings for the placement of deck bags if you wish (on my purchase list). Be sure to note that while the rear well will keep most of the water out, it is not completely waterproof. I tested it by dumping a large amount of water on the cover, and a portion of it seeped in. So if you plan on taking this down some whitewater, be sure to keep your cell phone in a drybag or container, along with anything else you wish to keep dry. Please note that there is little-to-no room inside the kayak for storage. Behind the seat is occupied by inflatable space, and the legroom is comfortable but snug (I am about 5'10", 150lbs). If you plan on taking this on an overnight or multiday trip, you will need a set of deckbags for gear storage.

Overall, this kayak is a must-buy and a keeper for me. The small amount of storage space required, phenomenal portability, and excellent handling and stability have made me extremely happy with my purchase. As I mentioned, the accessories leave much to be desired, but a decent paddle can be purchased on Amazon for ~40 dollars. All in all, this boat is versatile and portable, two great qualities to have in a kayak, and at the price, it can't be beat.

Quickpak K5 is a keeper 23 May 2011
By S. R. Perrine - Published on
A friend of mine surprised my wife and myself by gifting us a K5. We really enjoyed it and have since ordered another one. Most importantly, the yak is fun on the water. I weigh in at 247 lbs and had NO problem getting in and out of the yak. It is a real engineering marvel. I was about to buy a hard side kayak when my friend surprised me with this inflatable version. The reason I still hadn't purchased the hardside yaks was I was worried about where I would store the boats, as well as the $300 I'd have to spend on a rooftop system for my car to get the boats to the water. Now I'm glad I was in a holding pattern as I tried to figure out a system (transportation and storage) which would make sense for my home and car. Although I was skeptical when I first saw the inflatable (I'm a conservative type, ie always use gas engines never electric, prefer steel over plastic, etc) I was won over by the sheer logic of the system. Easy to get ready (it really is only about five minutes from pulling it out of the trunk to ready to launch). It is also comfortable and secure in the water. I'm sure it is not as fast as a hard shell, but I'm interested in having fun, getting exercise, and don't plan on entering any races anyway, so it is perfect for me. If it holds up for five years I'll feel like I got my moneys worth. By the way, several hard side kayakers asked me where I purchased my Kayak and I can tell from the look in their eyes that they see all the problems they have such as weight, storage, and transportation are all solved by going to a quality inflatable design. I highly recommend the K5, although I use an electric pump I can run from my car to inflate it so I can't comment on the pump design. Mine is actually pumped up in about two minutes... yahooo!

Great Kayak but the accessories.... 9 Aug. 2012
By SaigonSteve - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought this Kayak at the beginning of summer. I have sailed it a number of times,and must say the Kayak itself seems very durable&rugged,stable,and seaworthy(or should I say riverworthy,since I kayak on the Hudson River). It is a 1 person kayak,as stated. I am 5'10"&185lbs,and fit;I'd guess a height of 6' would be as tall as one could be to reasonably fit in the K5.

It takes me just 10 minutes to be in the water after parking the car,and 10 minutes to get into the car and take off after getting out of the water. Once in the water,the K5 moves along quite adequately. I have encountered 3'-4' waves while out,and the K5 is as solid as a rock. If stability and balance are of great importance to you,this kayak shines. I also like the bungee cords both before and behind the seat-very useful.
The spray skirt does drip a bit,but Scotch Guard or a similar water repellent should work.

Now for the downside: The paddle is 5th rate and not worthy of use. It is a 3 section paddle,with cheap plastic hand grips which are uncomfortable to use. On my first trip out,1 section came off,in spite of my screwing it on tightly. On my third trip out,the paddle was in the process of breaking apart as I pulled into shore. I replaced the paddle with a Seasense Xtreme,which has comfortable foam grips and seems to work well.
In less than a month the handle of the air pump snapped,rendering it inoperable. I replaced it with another manual pump,as well as a pump that attaches to the port on the dashboard of your car. Inflating and deflating the K5 is now effortless,and the valve stems on the electric fit the Kayak.

With good accessories,the K5 is a 5 star kayak-strong,rugged,very stable and seaworthy,and well designed.
My advice for those interested,is when ordering the K5,order a decent paddle and air pump at the same time.
You'll be happy you did.

Good, Bad and Ugly 22 Sept. 2013
By Herbert Storck - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought my Sevylor/Coleman QuikPak 5 Kayak on July 5, 2012 from Leisure Pro.

My wife and I shared the Kayak for what remained of the first summer (July, August, September 2012) and she decided to buy one for herself in early August 2013 so that we could Kayak at the same time.

The good: Leisure Pro had the best shipping price and delivery experience to Canada. It arrived one day after ordering. The kayaks were relatively easy to set up and have been a delight to deploy on our side of Lake Ontario. We even had plans to take the kayaks to more northern lakes and waterways next summer.

The bad: As many reviewers have noted, the paddles were less than useful but we replaced both original paddles with much better lightweight fiberglass versions. The pump does take a little getting used to especially as the nozzle for the main valve did not fit, but we managed by creating a rubber band ring as an adaptor.

The Ugly: My kayak which was purchased July 5, 2012 developed two leaks, one on the valve of the bottom chamber valve and then a complete blow out along the seam of the side bladder while I was inflating it by hand. This gash measured over two (2)feet in length and just blew out prior to complete inflation. Sadly they BOTH happened on Sept. 22, 2013 just after the limited 1 year warranty expired. Now, if you factor in the reality that you can only kayak so many months a year--in our case July, August, Sept. 2012 and May, June, July, August and most of Sept 2013 you actually have an actual functional life of 8 months. All of our usage was well within the manufacturers specifications! However, given the fact that the limited warranty covers the winter when one does not kayak we have certainly not had 12 months of usage. Moreover, given that we have to send this kayak to Wichita, Kansas for redress, even if still under warranty, makes the warranty all but meaningless if you live outside the US as it would cost too much to send.

My wife is quite disappointed and I am somewhat less so, as I understand the limitations of any inflatable device from a pillow to kayak. I also understand how corporations protect themselves from even legitimate product failures and in our case exploit the geographical distances and international boundaries over which their products are sold. This is in part perplexing as Coleman has a footprint in Canada. Notwithstanding, others should know about the potential functional limitations of this product's life and the danger that it can present. Interestingly, my wife's kayak had some minor design modifications, perhaps suggesting that others may have experienced structural failures along the bladder seams. But this remains an unproven hypothesis. Personally, and for other readers, I would like to know more about other people's long term experiences with the K5 kayak, especially those who purchased their K5 in 2011 and also 2012 as this will impact my decision to purchase another kayak manufactured by Coleman.

In the meantime, all should be aware of the potential for catastrophic failure along the bladder seam, something that could be quite dangerous on the open water and not on shore as in my case. As always, buyers need to beware and be prepared by wearing a PFD. Also sharing information with each other can be helpful as it may also help socially responsible manufacturers to develop better products and more realistic warranties especially on seasonal products. At least we can hope.
