It’s mid-February and we’re all getting excited about the warmer weather headed our way. Around this time of year, stores like Bass Pro Shop, Dick’s Sporting Goods, West Marine, and of course, MericanMen.com are putting their inventory of kayak gear and supplies on full display.
As kayak season nears closer, we expect some of the hottest items to be kayak outriggers, stabilizers, and trolling motors. Outriggers for kayaks are very popular for guys who love to fish and operate in areas with heavier boat traffic.
This article will help you determine which kayak outriggers to buy in 2020. We interviewed hundreds of kayakers across America to determine the kayak outriggers in the market. Although we do sell outriggers and stabilizers for kayaks, we want you to buy the best even if it’s from a competitor.
We here at MericanMen.com hope you enjoy our 2020 kayak outriggers and stabilizers reviews for 2020.
Inflatable Kayak Outriggers
Available in both white and blue, these inflatable outriggers for kayaks are extremely durable and buoyant. I personally use these stabilizers because they are quick to inflate/deflate. Since space is limited, I love how easy these outriggers fit into my backpack. Another plus for these outriggers is that they are easy to mount to your kayak rather than some of the other more expensive hard stabilizers.
The cost of these inflatable kayak outriggers usually runs between $40 and $100 depending on color and quantity.
