The Chinook XP One inflatable kayak form Aquaglide is aimed squarely at the budget conscious paddlers who are wary of spending too much on their hobby. It is extremely compact, which means you’ll probably want to stick to smaller fishing spots with it, but it’s hard to argue with the price. The budget priced Chinook XP One is being sold as a recreational kayak, but it does include a couple of features that make it suitable for angling.

In terms of dimensions, the XP One is 8'10” long and 36” wide with a weight of only 22 lbs. It is designed to accommodate one person and has a capacity of about 250 lbs. According to Aquaglide, the floor construction of this kayak makes use of an inflatable chamber that has their proprietary X-beam technology, which results in a stiff, durable PVC beam floor. The hull on the other hand features Duratex material that is blended with rugged 600d polyester. This means that the kayak not only has UV protection, but should be durable enough to last you a while with proper care.

Inflating this kayak is a breeze and you start with the floor before doing the two side chambers. When this is done, you can attach the seat by using the strap webbing as well as two side cinches. You can also pull the side straps to tighten the seat back once you are inside the kayak. The Chinook XP One also comes with a removable tracking fin for improved tracking when you venture into deeper water. The light weight of this kayak means it is very easy to transport by yourself and it has four padded, cloth carrying handles to make moving it around even easier. Two sets of Velcro paddle holders can be found on the sides of the kayak and you have two rear d-rings as well as front and rear bungee deck-lacing to secure your gear. In case you are wondering where to find space on this small kayak for your rods, you’ll find two rod holders on the back of the seat, next to a deep mesh storage pocket.

For its size, the Chinook XP One is surprisingly stable and quite comfortable to boot. If you are serious about angling you’ll probably want to invest in something larger and more feature packed, but for recreational anglers on a tight budget, this is a good option.
