Hobie

Hobie's i9S was specifically designed for would-be kayakers who are shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail package).

The i9S' on-the-water performance rivals that of rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches. A wheeled travel case makes transporting a snap and enables stowage on an RV, car or yacht.

Ideal for the Traveler or Someone with no storage

Let's face it, if you're going to buy toys, you're going to need the room to store them and transport them. Not everyone has a man cave or garage nor does everyone drive a pick up truck. An inflatable is ideal for the fisherman that lives in an apartment or the traveler that wants to expand their water access for fishing.

I owned an i9s inflatable for several months. I only got rid of it because I wasn't using it as much as I was my Hobie Pro Anglers. I shipped it to Florida for a three week vacation and it was nice to have access on the water instead of fishing from the beach. The unit packs up (with some precise folding) into portable piece of luggage with wheels. I never took it on the airline as checked luggage but from what I read you can check it as a piece of luggage for your next vacation. An over all great inflatable that gets 4 stars because of the MirageDrive pedal system.
