REI Kayaks

Get on the lake, river or seacoast for views that can't be seen from the shore. 

Sit-on tops Kayaks are primarily recreational boats for lakes and easy flowing rivers. 

REI Kayaks

Inflatable Kayaks From Recreational Equipment Inc.

Inflatable Kayaks are a great option if you don't have a lot of storage space. 

Most weigh between 20 and 35 pounds and fit into a bag similar in size to a large suitcase. 

They are easily deployed and packed back up making them very mobile. Prices for Inflatable Kayaks are a bit cheaper then solid hulled kayaks.

REI Touring Kayaks

REI touring kayaks are long, robust and super efficient over long distances. 

They track well with a ruckler or skag to deal with wind and currents. 

These kayaks have plenty of cargo space and are built for multiple day uses. 

Sit On Top Kayaks Compared

REI sit on top kayaks are the heaviest of all the REI Kayaks. This is because none the sit-on-top kayaks are inflatables. 

If you are into fishing from a Kayak, these are probably the best choice as you have ample space and room to move around. 

The Old Town Sportsman Salty PDL 120 and the Pelican Premium Getaway 110 are ideal for fishing because they are also pedal kayaks which leaves your hands free to fish while you quietly troll for your prey.

REI Tandem Kayaks

The REI Tandem Kayaks are great for getting out on the water with a friend, loved one, or an enemy who can't swim. 

All three REI tandems are inflatable which really helps keep the weight down considering that you should have a second set of hands to help you. 

The Advanced Element tandem kayaks offer a good flatwater kayaking experience, whereas, the Aquaglide Chinook 120 can also be used for fishing and has room for up to 3 people. 

Just keep in mind that these Kayaks do have maximum weight capacities of 550 pounds.

REI Paddle Boards (Stand Up)

Rei paddle boards for stand up use come in various styles and compositions. 

Keep in mind that a paddle boards hull shape determines how it will perform in the water. 

REI Paddle Boards

REI Paddle Boards with Planing Hull

Best For Maneuverability.

These paddle boards are flat and wide, similar to a surfboard. 

These boards are designed to ride on top of the water, which makes it easier to turn. 

They are versatile for recreational paddling, surfing, SUP yoga and fishing. 

REI GEAR FOR EVERYONE

REI Paddle Boards with Displacement Hull

Best For Efficiency.

The REI Paddle Boards with displacement hulls slice through the water with less effort than planing hulls. 

They track straight but are a bit less maneuverable than planing hulls. 

A displacement hull paddle board from REI is great for SUP touring, fitness, racing, fishing, and general recreational use. 

Solid Boards Vs Inflatable Boards

REI Solid Paddle Boards

The solid paddle boards travel faster, smoother with less effort than an inflatable paddle board. 

REI offers a large variety of solid paddle board in various sizes so you can get a better fit. 

REI Inflatable Paddle Boards

REI offer inflatable paddle boards that are very rigid when inflated due to PVC exteriors and drop stitch construction.

Obviously, the most attractive feature is that they pack down into a storage bag. 

REI inflatable paddle boards come with a pump for easy assembly.
