Inflatable kayaks have a number of benefits compared to traditional kayaks. Firstly, inflatable kayaks are much easier to transport; if you want to enjoy some kayaking you don't have the pain of trying to move a solid kayak to the water. They also make it easier if you are using your kayak as part of a larger trip. Having to haul around a solid kayak can be a pain if it is only occasionally being used. Inflatable kayaks are much easier to store and take around with. Inflatable kayaks aren't as hardy as traditional kayaks, but they still serve a very useful purpose. .
