Coleman Rio Inflatable Kayak Review

Product Rating: 
5

I first became interested in getting an inflatable kayak after hearing about someone taking one out regularly on the coast, which until then I had not thought would be a good idea. I did some research and found that inflatable boats can be quite robust! I decided to buy the Coleman Sevylor Rio because it seemed like the best one available on Amazon (plus free Prime shipping), and I've always had good luck with Coleman brand items in the past.
