Rated 5 out of 5 by Silentshopper1 How sweet it is!
My wife and I wanted a highly portable watercraft to replace our 16' canoes when we travel. It had to have a good blend of stability and maneuverability for photography and general cruising.
The Innova Twist 2 is every thing we wanted and more.
It sets up quickly, carries easily and stores in a small space when packed up. No more roof top loading or unloading :) !
One of the first things we noticed was how rigid it was when inflated to 3 psi, a handling plus. We have had it out in about 5 knots of wind and it tracks and handles nicely upwind, downwind and crosswind. My wife especially appreciates the insulating quality of the hull air chambers between your butt and the cold water.
Very impressed with this kyack's quality build and performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OceanFIt55 Not made in China
I demoed the single version for 2 days and tried out a friends Sea Eagle. Just go to INNOVA Kayaks website to see this product and how it is NON PVC material that is stronger and loses less air in cold climates and water. I paddle New England so this one is for me.
The small tracking fin makes a big difference and improves straight line paddling. When Solo I add a 5 gallon jug of water in front to add a nice 40 pound ballast for smoother performance.
It is a rugged product that has been sold and used throughout Europe for years. Just being so mobile and convenient to bring on plane or in Car makes a Huge Difference in how often I Paddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex21 Incredible Product
I don't have much storage in my apartment, so when I wanted a kayak, I had to do my research on which inflatable kayaks are best. My girlfriend and I were able to finally test out our new Innova Kayak this past weekend and we have never had so much fun kayaking. This is light to carry, easy to unfold and inflate, and it cuts through the water like some of the better hard-shell kayaks on the market.
Our friends dog even rode with us a few times which shows it's durability. By far one of the best kayaking experiences we have had, and it's great to know we can take it virtually anywhere with us.
If you are looking for a fun kayak at a reasonable price, look no further. You will be extremely satisfied with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dhabbott A lot to like about this boat
I bought this to replace an Innova that I had for many years that started leaking after I left it in the hot sun while fully inflated -- hint, don't do that. This one is lighter and tracks better. You won't win any races with this (at least not against people with long fast kayaks) but it is perfect for taking in the car, on an airplane (took one to Puerto Rico as checked luggage), or on a larger boat as an efficiently stored tender. It is very stable, handles well, even in the wind, and allows me to talk quietly with my wife as we paddle along. And if either of us wants to just sit back, the other one can do the work. We can inflate it and be underway in less than 10 minutes. It does get wet sometimes, and you do sit on the floor, so take that into account. Overall though, we love it.
