A Fun, Portable Kayak
The inflatable backrest/thwart seat has two straps on each side that lace through the bail (drain) holes so you can place it anywhere in the kayak for your best comfort.
The fabric base is made with 25 ounce/square yard, 840-denier nylon that is coated with highly abrasion resistant polyurethane, and constructed with RF welded seams.

The NRS Rascal is PVC-free, making it a greener product than other types of inflatable kayaks. It also features adapter-free Leafield valves; C7 Fill Valves on the tubes, and an A7 Pressure Relief Valve to protect the floor from over-inflation.
A lot of the reviews on this model focus on the overall smallness of the craft, so it will fit a kid very well or should be used by an adult that wants packability with no plans for long outings or need to take gear along. In other words, the NRS Rascal is more of a play boat, but one that is built to last.
Very Lightweight, Great for Kids
The 32.5" beam width and 10" tube diameter make the Rascal highly maneuverable yet quite stable. The weight capacity is not listed but we suggest no one over 150 to 170 lbs use it. If you are looking for a self-bailing whitewater model for a teen or small woman, the NRS Rascal inflatable kayak is a good choice.
