Build Quality

Although the SE 370 weighs only 32 lbs (about 15 kg), the boat remains relatively stable, although not as stable as the wider Sea Eagle Explorer kayak.

The hull is of K80 PolyKrylar (38ml PVC). Hence, the hull is resistant to being torn in any direction. Physical contact with sharp, pointed objects shouldn’t be an issue. The kayak is certified white water class III, so it is resistant.

Additionally, special additives are used to protect the outside of the kayak from UV rays, oil, gasoline and other chemicals.

The hull inflates into three individual chambers (two sides and a floor), which means the large rupture won’t capsize the kayak. This is an important safety feature of a high-quality inflatable kayak. After inflating the hull’s main chambers, it also inflates the two spray skirts.

The recommended air pressure for the SE 330 and 370 is 1.1 PSI.

Quality & Comfort

Comfort

The kayak is fairly compact and can be up and running from a deflated position in minutes, depending on which pump you use. Setting up the SE 370 with the pump that comes with it takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes. It would be a little faster with an electric pump if you had one, but if not, I wouldn’t get one just for this kayak.

It’s roomy and spacious for two adults on board, which makes it a great tandem boat. They will have a lot of legroom. Not to mention the deluxe seats provide solid support.

SE 370 is a 3-person kayak, but it won’t fit 3 adults comfortably.

The Sea Eagle 370 Pro is fairly light at 32 pounds, which makes it easy to carry.

You can pack it away in its carrying case. It’s small enough to fit in your RV or truck, but just too large to hike with.

Performance

Inflatable kayaks cannot perform exactly the same as traditional canoes. Inflatable kayaks are more for recreational use than actual racing. This does not mean that they do not perform as well as the toughest traditional kayaks, but they are simply not expected to be used for anything professional.

They are for a more relaxing kind of excursion rather than a ride through the rapids.

That said, the Sea Eagle inflatable boat is excellent in calm waters. You can keep going in a straight line without needing a lot of rowing power to keep going. You may need a little more power to row than normal while navigating through stronger currents.

The flat bottom body design is a common recreational design that is ideal for giving you the highest level of stability. The two skegs give you easy maneuverability and stability in crosswinds.

Performance, Usage, Design

Design

The design is far from basic as it is designed to outperform anything. Although it’s marketing is done as an entry-level kayak, it is ideal for both advanced and novice kayaking alike. Furthermore, this design provides a high level of comfort, which makes it less cumbersome for long trips and tours.

The cockpit area has been designed to ensure maximum comfort for all paddling with quality seat and extended legroom.

There are two types of inflatable spray skirts with the kayak, one in the front and the other in the back, allowing you to keep your body and your load as dry as possible. Although it originally came with two seats, but three people can use it, depending on the total weight.

It’s been said that it can handle up to 650lbs, but it is likely to handle a bit more because of its solid construction.

Usage

The Sea Eagle SE 370 is ideal for families or even individual explorers. No matter who you are traveling with, it is sure to be a great experience while paddling around the lake. It is also ideal for families with pets, as you can take your pet with you on the trip.

The generous legroom lets you seat one to three passengers, making it a great choice for large groups or families paddling together.
