Disappointing—I would not order this again. The inflatable seat failed in the first 2 minutes of use when a seam burst. I wrote it off as a minor inconvenience. The rest of the boat worked the first time, and worked pretty well. The second time that I pulled the boat out to use it, I gave up. The bottom inflation chamber uses a vinyl straw for inflation, and that had broken (in two places!), rendering that chamber unusable. Also, I misplaced the special adapter needed to connect the AE foot pump to the AE boat, so inflation of the other chambers was difficult at best. Very poor design on both of these elements. I also own one of those Klymit pack rafts. When it worked, the AE boat seemed more sturdy and tracked better than the Klymit. But the Klymit is half the weight, which is important when you’re planning to carry it for miles before use. And of course, the fact that the Klymit doesn’t fail after one use makes it the choice for me.

Maybe asking on the Klymit offering might get more responses.

Wanting to surprise my bro with an awesome bday present. He does a lot of technical canyoneering and often has to pack -raft out on areas of the Colorado River. While he has a decent pack raft this looks to me that it would be easier to control and a little more fun. Any thoughts from those who have used this? Obviously he is not hitting the big rapids with his little pack rafts but he does encounter some of the more turbulent water and on other rivers and creeks more debris and higher currents.

If he already has a “decent pack raft,” I wouldn’t get this one. This is not for whitewater. It’s a fun little boat that can be hauled to mountain lakes, and can be used to bob down streams, but if he‘s on the Colorado, this really isn’t the right boat. You’re a pretty awesome brother to be thinking about this, though!

Thanks for responding. I ultimately decided not to go with it after doing additional research. He's my oldest brother who always takes care of us (3 younger sisters) so we really just wanted something radical for him!

Inflatable seat? In one of the pictures, there appears to be an inflatable seat. In another picture, it’s not there. Mine does not have one, but one would be helpful. Is this a new design?

Hi ATPaddler, the seat was added as part of a new design to the PackLite in 2017. -AE_Support www.advancedelements.com

Has anyone had experience with the outer cover? Floating in Missouri, lots of potential snags to pop an inflatable.

Our Packlite kayak was designed to be an extremely compact and ultra-light recreational kayak for paddling in the most remote locations that would otherwise be much more difficult to access with a heavier inflatable and next to impossible with a hard shell. Depending on what type of conditions you plan on paddling in and think you may come in significant contact with sticks and rocks any of our other kayaks from the FireFly on up will be able to suit your needs. -AE_Support www.advancedelements.com

Live in the Bay Area, CA. interested in inflatables for my small car, but really nervous about them because it almost doesn't even seem safe. Any input, from somebody with experience? Thanks.

Not the Bay version, however.

I have one of these, and a couple of other AE inflatables. This one would not be ideal for puttering around in the bay. An AE inflatable, like the AirFusion, or the Advanced Frame would probably work well for you. They are made robustly, and while you couldn’t just play bumper boats with them, they are rugged. I have an Advanced Frame and it is easy to put in and get out of the trunk of my car, and I can have the boat ready to launch in about 10 minutes. I have an AE paddle, though I don’t know if it’s this one or another, and it feels solid and has a good catch to it.

Not really in the same league. Cheaper and lighter.

Loved this, but the bottom ripped out the very first time I used it. I have contacted customer support.
