I recently become the new owner of a Neris Smart Pro Kayak; I will be using this inflatable kayak for my next Adventure in the Amazon river. I normally use an Ally canoe and loved every thing about it except when its very windy and unfortunately there is no way to be safe with it in coastal travel. My last canoe trip was from Vegas to the Mexican border on the Colorado river.

I didn’t want to write a review before I could test it long enough to know what I was talking about .

The material look like very good quality and the inner alloy frame is very easy to mount, in fact you can built the kayak in 15 mn without breaking a sweat. The kayak came into a large backpack, everything you need fit in it, this includes in my case the ruder and skirt too. The total weight was 25 KG.

Now after over 100 miles with it I am even more satisfied with the kayak, great stability and tracking and even with 15 miles/H wind the boat was not dancing in front of me (even without using the rudder. I did few 20 miles/day without fatigue thanks to the good inflatable seat. The adverse weather condition stopped me to try rolling it or doing a self-rescue but with the inflated side it should not be any problem to get back inside.

I also did some try out fully loaded with 2 cone bags (Neris) and a 110 L ortlieb duffle, totaling about 60 kg of gears and still no stability or tracking issue. Most of my kayaking was done on the lake Provo, Jordan river and Provo river in Utah.

If you have any question asked me and if you want to look at it, I am in Lehi Utah.

Extremely impressed with this kayak! After much research on folding kayaks, I became very attracted to the idea of a hybrid folding kayak. There is really nothing comparable to the Smart Pro on the market, for me it checks all the boxes . Super compact and light weight in the packing bag, easy to assemble (took about 30 mins the first time) now I can have it ready in 15 - 20 mins easy. I've taken it out a few times now and it preforms beyond expectation, no drag, tracks perfectly (even in wind). You can tell the material quality and workmanship is outstanding. Plus it looks great! I cant wait to take it on some multi-day expeditions I am planning for the spring.
