Product Comparison: Sea Eagle SE370 vs Advanced Elements AE1007-R


General Specifications
About the Product
This affordable inflatable Sport Kayak is as lightweight and portable as it gets, yet still remarkably stable and durable. It weighs just 32 lbs. and packs down small enough to fit in the smallest car trunk. Don't let the light weight fool you.
The AdvancedFrame® Convertible is a fifteen foot kayak that can be paddled solo or tandem. With an open deck design, you can easily enter and exit the boat or utilize the optional single or double decks to convert your AdvancedFrame® Convertible from an open deck to a closed deck kayak in a matter of seconds. The design of this kayak combines our rigid bow and stern rib-frame design with the versatility of tandem or solo seating positions and interchangeable decks.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sea Eagle SE370 Inflatable Sport Kayak Deluxe Package
  • I've tested it in one person configuration, but plan on using it for two adults and a 5-year old; which I think it will be plenty big enough for.
  • Great for two-people plus gear, and great for one person. I've had it on flatwater river and a couple lakes, have yet to take it on any rapids but plan to very soon!
  • I was surprised at how little room you actually have once the two side tubes are inflated. It has been great for solo trips and two person trips.
  • I love it, can hold 650 pounds, built of study materials, easy to set up, easy to tear down and trasport.
  • Was looking at the Saylor 2 person kayak but it didn't come with a skegg or oars....so after adding everything up this wasn't much more expensive, and it seems to be the real deal.
Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak
  • There is plenty of space for 2 people or even 1 person and two kids or dogs etc. It tracks really well and is a pleasure to paddle on the water.
  • Great amount of space if your taking multiple people - not a problem to paddle alone but there may be better options
  • This boat handles very well, faster and better tracking than most sit on top two person kayaks I have rented in the past.
  • Love the Kayak, very versatile 1 or 2 person. I use it with my 6 years old and it's very stable and comfortable.
  • Fits two adults and two children if needed but also works well when converted to one person.

What customers say about "Construction"
Sea Eagle SE370 Inflatable Sport Kayak Deluxe Package
  • Durability is very good, and an obvious concern for a cheap-ish watercraft. The hull material is very solid.
  • I was very impressed with the thickness of the material it is made of and the workmanship.
  • Material is durable and showed no wear and tear after being drug through the sand and beached. Best feature is it is very portable, and all parts easily fit in the bag.
  • The build quality is very good and the material the boat is made out of feels very sturdy.
  • The seats are not made of the same grade of material as the boat.
Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak
  • This kayak is made of high quality materials. It's very easy to assemble/inflate and deflate and dry up after use.
  • The material is durable, it is easy to assemble and inflates quickly with the double action hand pump.
  • I love the strong material. I've ran over rocks and logs with no issues.
  • The material is tough and stood up to the elements well. After a day on the water, I deflated the kayak and cleaned it before packing it away...no problems at all.
  • Made from quality materials and tracks well for an inflatable. Looking forward to many more paddling adventures this year, urban and remote locals.

What customers say about "Features"
Sea Eagle SE370 Inflatable Sport Kayak Deluxe Package
  • Best feature is it is very portable, and all parts easily fit in the bag.
  • This kayak is portable, easy to transport, easy to inflate, durable, and is quite maneuverable on the water. The oars are pretty darn good for the price of this package.
  • The oars are/were ok, not sure what was that much better for use on the premium model, but they were more expensive than the ones we got according to Amazon's prices.
  • The middle seat just folds over unless the person on back puts their feet up against the back to stabilize it. Not comfortable.
  • The only bad thing I can say - and I can't emphasize enough just how bad they are - is the inflatable seats are horrible!
Advanced Elements AE1007-R AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak
  • Very portable (the best feature). It's easy to inflate. It comes already assembled so there is no guessing game.
  • The handles are not big enough to give you enough length to hang around your shoulders. You can put your arm in and put it on your shoulder, but it is not very comfortable.
  • In the water it handles very easily and seems to track well (I don't have a lot of kayaking experience to compare it to). If you're in the market for an inflatable kayak, I highly recommend this one.
  • The seats are pretty OK. The seats attach to the kayak with two buckle straps and I tightened mine to make it near straight back sitting.
  • The supplied seats work well with sufficient back support. It is heavier than I thought it would be.
