The two-paddler option in our Paragon series, the Paragon Tandem, is the ultimate tandem inflatable kayak for flatwater fun. Paragon kayaks feature rigid inserts that create a traditional keel-shaped hull, plus a removable skeg, to provide optimal efficiency and tracking. As with all Paragon kayaks, the Paragon Tandem gives you bungee rigging in the bow and stern, a stable high-pressure floor and comfortable folding seats.

The product is very well made and is large and comfortable. The drop stitch floor make it very stable in the water. We have used the kayak in both flat water and some very basic class 2 rapids. The Kyak tracks well in flat water and is very durable.
The only issue I have with the kayak is that NRS / Star does not publish weight limits for the kayak. Based on our experience, at around 450 pounds the kayak tends to swamp a bit (about 1" of water in the Kayak). This happens because it is self bailing and has drain holes all along the bottom. As soon as the weight is removed the kayak drains quickly.
Overall this is a very good entry level inflatable kayak which is portable and maneuverable. It is made in the US backed by NRS which is a top notch company with outstanding customer service. If you are planning on transporting less 450 pounds in the kayak, you really can't go wrong with the Paragon Tandem.
