Best Expedition Sea Kayak
THE GIST: Designed for wilderness adventures, expedition kayaks are 16 to 18 feet long and stow weeks’ worth of provisions. BEST FOR: Multi-day trips. WHY THIS ONE: Designed by an Olympian and a surf-ski champion, Epic’s 18X is an intermediate-friendly expedition boat with plenty of cargo space and a bombproof rudder system. Purists questioned whether it would handle rough seas; then Freya Hoffmeister paddled hers around Australia. 18', from 36 lbs.
