portability and ease of use. They're just fun too. I've had inflatables for over nine
years now. My favorite is still the two-seater 380x model shown below. Arguably the best place to get an inflatable is still Sea Eagle.
Eastern Mountain Sports is a pretty good place to pick up some gear from a big selection
of top name brands such as The North Face, Marmot, Thule, NRS, Mountain Hardwear,
Yakima, Garmin, Wilderness Systems, and plenty of others.
Patagonia produces some terrific apparel. Their on-the-water apparel are comfortable and allow for total
freedom of movement with a classic front-zip style.
