My Gosh! If you live somewhere perfect like Southern California or any where the weather is sunny and beautiful even in the “winter months”, then you may be looking for something as fun as a two person inflatable kayak. And, since you’re here, let’s dive into a review of the Airhead AHTK-2 Montana Performance Kayak.
Wow, that’s a mouthful and a handful to type!
Yes, the Airhead AHTK-2 Montana is a two seater inflatable kayak and comes in around 12 feet long. It is constructed of durable material making it ideal for kayaking in the lakes and moderate white river rafting. The floor is designed as tubular I-beam floor (typical) and weighs around 36.3 lbs. Some of you may love the orange colour and some may hate it but it’s a smart choice for safety enthusiasts as it makes the product high visibility. The tubular I-beam flooring does make it very comfortable to sit in. It contains two Boston valves for quick inflation and deflation. For an option that’s not inflatable nor hardshell, the foldable convenient Oru Kayak is an expensive but well performing option.
And look: it can support upto 500 pounds! If size is an issue, this baby can definitely handle that. Have a look at this beaut:
The Meat of the Airhead AHTK-2 Montana Kayak
If pricing isn’t an issue and you are looking for an inflatable boat that can fit tall people comfortable or upto 500 pounds, then the Airhead Montana 2 person kayak is a great choice.
If that isn’t impressive, a reviewer on Amazon touts that AIRHEAD AHTK-2 Montana Performance 2 Person Kayakhe bought the AHTK-2 in 2006 for the purpose of roughing it (in 2006) and that it still hasn’t developed any leaks.
This is due to the build of the Airhead Montana 2 person kayak which is constructed from the nylon denier fabric shell. When it comes to leaks, this kayak is extremely durable.
Another cool thing about the Montana Two Person Kayak is that it looks very nice and doesn’t look “cheap” as some of these can. Of course, priced around $375, you’d think this would be standard but sadly, it’s not the case with all inflatable boats and kayaks.
Even with two people, there is plenty of space for you to store additional items (trust me, this comes in handy). It’s extremely easy and quick to inflate and deflate. Also, thanks to its build and the four fins it comes with, you’ll find the tracking to be consistent and the maneuverability to be better than most kayaks in its class.
I expect you to read this section before you read any additional reviews. That’s what I do 😉
The only two cons are that the Airhead two persona inflatable boat comes with straps which is fine for carrying but a tad bit cumbersome. It does NOT come with a bag to put it away which would’ve been ACE.
Because of that, the weight comes into factor. This two person kayak weighs 36 pounds and sometimes, you can feel it.
If you are looking for safety, room, durability, stability, and good tracking, this is solid buy.
