Hardshell kayaks are made from wood, fiberglass, plastic, or composite materials like Kevlar, which forms the body of these rigid boats. These “regular” kayaks can be quite heavy, and you need a car and roof rack to transport them.

Inflatable kayaks, on the other hand, are made from more flexible materials, like  vinyl, which is often coated in either polyester or nylon; Or pure PVC type of Kayak; or the Kayak built by Drop stitch PVC. When deflated, they pack up reasonably small for easy storage and transport—many inflatable kayaks fit into a conveniently sized carrying bag that may fit in airline overhead storage and definitly fits in the back of a small car, no roof rack necessary. Inflatable kayaks are convenient, but do require an extra step: when you arrive at your destination, you have to pump them up with an electric pump, foot pump, or hand pump to the recommended pressure.

The advantage of inflatable kayaks is the incredible ease of transport, and that they’re light and easy to carry to and from the water. This makes them ideal for multi-sport activites。
