- Fun for the whole family!
I bought this boat mainly so that when my wife and I took out our raft (Aire 156R) with the long-trip frame, we could also bring along some kids, or my daughter and her boyfriend, or another couple, and they could have fun instead of just sitting idle and crowding my poor wife. We got much more than that. Another couple, good friends, tried it out first on the Rio Grande through the lower gorge and then the Racecourse. With no previous experience, they had a great time and didn't flip once. Then they rode Little Bess (the raft being Big Bess) on the Green with us through Desolation Canyon. A lateral got them on an early class two rapid, but they learned (if you're that close, turn into it!) and just plowed through every other rapid on the run--including Joe Hutch Canyon! The width and ensuing stability, the tie-down loops, the seats with the water-bottle pocket and storage bag, the iron-tough exterior: every one of these features contributed greatly to their confidence and success. I was worried they might feel a little claustrophobic sitting there for six days and five nights; on the contrary, they loved the boat and are in the process of getting one for themselves. Actually, they're a little put back that they might also need a raft, as my ability to support kayakers on a week-long trip only goes so far! (Posted on 9/11/2017)
- We are beginners and bought the Outfitter II 2 years ago as a compromise -- tandem and solo.
We are beginners and bought the Outfitter II 2 years ago as a compromise -- tandem and solo. We have gone tandem in class II & limited III and it's unbelievably stable. I was certain we would get dumped sideways on a big class III wave but we leaned in glided up and back down. Love it on flat water with the removable skeg -- tracks beautifully even in wind. I've taken it out solo and while it takes more work and is less nimble than a solo Outfitter (one guy in our group has one), it is still tons of fun and, again, very stable. It's tough, too, VERY tough -- indestructible it seems. Now I want a solo, too! The company is GREAT!!!!!!! (Posted on 9/11/2017)
- The Outfitter II is very tough
Extremely durable and stable over wide array of field conditions. Used Outfitter II to hold one person (removed one seat), and heavy equipment inside with us on Western streams, lakes, and ponds to conduct biological surveys. Easily navigated down rivers (Class II). The Outfitter II is very tough, we dragged them overland through heavy brush, down railroad tracks, and even through black berry bushes without a leak. We used them hard for three field seasons. (Posted on 9/11/2017)
