You can take your Advanced Elements kayak with you anywhere in the world and no roof rack is needed! Keep it in the boot of your car and paddle whenever you want. You can take it to a remote wilderness area and paddle where no one has paddled before. Simply inflate with a pump and hit the water in minutes.

The setup is quick at about 15 minutes, but don't forget to insert aluminium deck lift strip; it works really well; no water entry through the front zip.
The pressure release valve on the inflatable floor is a great bonus. If you put too much air in you will hear the soft hiss of air escaping to drop the pressure back to the recommended level.
When closing the twist lock valves (floor, deck lift & deck combing chambers), don't forget to twist/turn the pump hoze whilst pumping to close the valves. In this way you won't loose any air closing the valves. Note: if your spray skirt won't stay on, make sure to tuck the inflation tubes at the back of the cockpit under each other & ensure there is enough air in the deck combing tubes!
The rear access hatch is a huge improvement, making it easy to load dry bags containing food, water & spare clothing for your trip.
