About Sevylor
In 1948 in Vitry, a small suburb of Paris, France, Berco Grimbert created an electronics company called Societe Electronique de Vitry, or SEVY for short. Soon, a friend of Grimbert's from New York commissioned SEVY to produce high frequency welding machines capable of fusing a new material called PVC (poly vinyl chloride). SEVY's machines worked very well and the American friend developed a very successful business manufacturing swimming pool related products. He then taught SEVY how to work with PVC.

One of the first PVC products SEVY produced was inflatable bathtub called Dou Dou. It was an instant hit in postwar France--mothers could bathe their children even where no facilities were available. The media hailed Dou Dou as a significant invention. Soon, SEVY added small pools and flotation devices such as rings, beach balls, and inflatable swim jackets to its product line. Safe, hygienic products, made of PVC and designed for portability, durability and convenience, became the SEVY trademark.

The company quickly outgrew its small facilities in Vitry. Mr. Grimbert accepted an attractive offer from the French government to take over a defunct textile factor in the tiny Alsatian village of Buhl. After establishing its new headquarters, the company added the letters "lor" to its name, and became Sevylor. In French, l'or means gold. By coincidence, or possibly fate, Sevylor has proven to be "as good as gold" to its owners, retailers, consumers, and employees.

Good beginner kayak..

Works well in lakes and ponds... Not meant for anyone over 5'10 or 200 lbs...

A friend and I rode down the upper Allegheny river and kept bottoming out in shallow water. This kayak is essentially a raft. The part of the raft under your butt constantly hits the bottom in shallow water and bows in the middle.

The spray skirt it useless since the nylon top is NOT WATERPROOF... This is a summer kayak only and you will get wet. I would never take this boat in cold water..

The kayak does not propel through the water as quickly as a fiberglass o r plastic one does... You have to paddle twice as hard as others who are in non inflatable boats..

Also, I had the same problem as others when trying to get a wet boat back into the bag.

This kayak is much cheaper than the plastic and fiberglass ones in the stores... You pay for what you get...

For beginners and children this is a good kayak.. For adults and those who want to stay dry keep looking...

I purchased this as a straight recreational "fun boat"...what I received was a very stable, comfortable, and straight tracking kayak!!

Don't let the "inflatable" in the name scare you away...this is a truly awesome kayak, that I am proud to paddle!!

Folks in their "tupperware" kayaks are always asking me where I got this boat.

the only downside I have found is that when your are paddling hard, the inevitable paddle drip will eventually seep through the nylon top deck...nothing a little ScotchGuard, and the included spray skirt won't fix .

Do yourself a favor.....BUY IT!!!

I bought this as a gift for my friend, who was thrilled. She absolutely loves it. She was using it smoothly right away without any practice, and she covers plenty of flat distance with little effort and no control trouble.

On the other hand, when she suggested I give it a try myself, I couldn't really get in and out -- she's small, I'm big (and not limber), and this is more a smaller person's boat.

She does get kinda wet riding this. She doesn't care -- never uses the spray skirt.

My first impressions of the Pointer K1 were pretty good. The bottom two thirds of the kayak is rubberized and appeared quite tough, while the ABS plastic inserts in both the front and back of the boat really helped define the shape of the hull. Once inflated along with the piece of deck ABS to assist with shedding of water, the flat pile of fabric I had laid out on my lawn finally started to take on the shape of an actual kayak. While the fabric material used for the Colorado is extremely stout, the fabric on the Pointer is just a mid-weight nylon fabric much like that found in backpacks, however for the most part, it is only really exposed on the inside and the deck areas, so it presumably doesn't need to be exceptionally tough, though it will let water through the deck with prolonged exposure unless you coat it with a water resistant spray.

Attaching the strap on the back of the seat to the rear deck helps pull it up and hold its shape, and the portal cover cinches down surprisingly tight with its simple shock corded system. At the fore and aft of the kayak are very sturdy carrying handles should you want to carry it with two people, though honestly it is small and light enough that it is very easy to just sling the cockpit over your shoulder and walk off with it. The bungee cord attached to the deck is functional, and with the ABS plastic insert below deck, I found I was able to carry a few things up there without it sagging, though I wouldn't put anything truly heavy there.

On the sides of the boat are simple shock cords with hooks that allow you to attach your paddle to the side when stopped or when you decide to drift and the "keep it simple stupid" method works very well here.

Verified Purchase
I bought this IK instead of a hardshell because it is easier to transport, I don't have to buy an extra roof rack, and I can take it on a plane if I want. I wanted an Advanced Frame, but I couldn't pass this one up because of the price (almost 50% less)! It's not perfect, but I think I got a very good deal for the money. I've taken this out on the lake already, but no rivers.

Pros:
- Looks good;
- Very stable and sturdy;
- Affordable;
- Comfortable seat;
- The cargo hatch in the back is a nice feature;
- Tracking and speed are ok;
- Stays pretty dry inside;
- Easy, quick set-up and inflation (about 5-10 minutes).

Cons:
- Leg & foot room is pretty tight;
- Storage bag is a little cumbersome (but it's a big boat!)
- A hardshell or pricier IK would probably track better & be quicker;
- Fishing from this boat would probably be awkward;
- Would like more storage space;
- Foot pump is not included (contrary to what Amazon listing indicates).

All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase...I'm even planning to buy another one so I can take a friend with me!

I got this kayak on sale at Academy for $199 and that was a super low price for this boat. I highly doubt one could find a better inflatable Kayak then this one, especially looking at the price. Like a hard shell but it is all inflatable. I have used it 8 times already... in the ocean, lakes, waterways, bayous, you name it. It tracks excellent and it will glide too especially in calmer waters. Its extremely stable, I had it in 3 foot white caps in large open water with 20-25mph head winds and had no problems at all. It cutts through the wind and waves without a lot of effort. It has a lot of storage space in the stern and on top the bow. A great quality boat that will take a lot to puncture. It is not as fast as my sisters hard shell Pelican Pursuit 100, but it is more stable and has more storage. In the end, it is fast enough and I am willing to bet it is one of the most versatile kayaks you can get for the money. I would take this boat anywhere in any kind of water, rough, calm, open, or inland whatever. It only has 3 chambers and inflates in about 4 min with a manual bellows foot pump I got for $5.00 also at Academy. It deflates in about 1 min, seriously. If you want an inflatable kayak, you can't go wrong with this one! I like to think quality is similar to the higher priced $500+ inflatable kayaks such as the Advanced Frame. A 5-star on this one so I had to let others know about it.
