The updated design of VAGABOND features a sportier look and better handling qualities achieved by narrower bow and stern combined with an increased lenght of the hull. Increased inner space offers more room for baggage and a greater variability of seat positioning. Wide horizontally installed seats offer comfortable seating, and combined with the provided thigh straps allow safe kneeling while paddling in rapids. The canoe is suitable for overnight trips and can be used on rivers up Gr. 3 white water as well as on sheltered waters of lakes and similar.
It is quite a narrow boat but generally feels very stable. It inflates in around 10 minutes and is even easier and quicker to dry off and pack away in its bag.
The boat does seem to scratch quite easily, but they are very light scratches and more cosmetic damage than anything serious - its seems pretty robust!
I think this must be one of the best inflatable canoes on the market, and unlike many it is designed to be paddled like a traditional open canoe rather that a kayak!
