    Comments about Tributary Tomcat Solo Inflatable Kayak:

    Aire is the US manufacturer and parent company of Tributary, which is the Chinese-made version of the company's single person inflatable kayak. They have upgraded this model with similar features as they have added to their US made, high end single inflatable kayak. Inflatable back rest is a major improvement over AIRE's Cheetah Chair, which is uncomfortable at best. Most notable are the welded, not stitched, hull seams, bow and stern drain sites/screens, and mid-ship handles on the underside to allow carrying and flipping when the boat lands upside down in the water. Multiple lash tabs along the hull between the floor and the side tubes give multiple options for seat placement, gear slippage, etc. I've run this boat on class IV+ (might not have been within my skill level but ya gotta get home once you run shuttle, right?...) and on down to class II. You can paddle it on flat water but not for long distances. Makes a great pool toy or lawn furniture if necessary.....Good purchase....recommended...

      Comments about Tributary Tomcat Solo Inflatable Kayak:

      After reading the previous, negative review and having owned Aire's Tributary rafts for over 10 years, I couldn't wait to purchase a duckie for my kids to prove the reviewer wrong. While I had wanted to get the LV (my kids are smaller), I went w/the regular Tomcat as that was in stock. My 10 y.o. rocked it! We used it on the Lower Salmon where it was a big hit. The review I'm referencing inferred the Tomcat wouldn't be durable and that is far from being an accurate statement. I know from my 10+ years of using two 14' Aire's recreationally (not commercially) that they last and I was right in thinking the Tomcat would be the same. It's a high-quality PVC that showed no affect after 5 days on the water and I'm confident it will last many, many years more. I was a guide when non-bailing duckies (we used Rikens) were first in use. When Riken came out w/their first self-bailer duck, I had a field day paddling it, including the Upper Yough and Upper Gauley. I'm sure the Tomcat will last the years of non-commercial use we'll have it for. My biggest regret is that I didn't get to paddle it on any of the rapids - I was stuck rowing and the kids didn't want to give up the duck. Is it up to a Thrillseeker's specs? No, but that's not how it's advertised nor close to the cost.

        • Tributary Tomcat Solo Inflatable Kayak

          Q:

          I have the AIRE foot braces to install on my new Tomcat Solo. One customer care response says that no glue is needed to install these, but according to the AIRE youtube installation video, you do need to glue the reinforcement patches to the inside panel if the kayak does not already have them. Just wondering what glue is recommended for this?

            A:

            As I'm sure you've seen, we offer a variety of pumps, at a range of prices. Really any of the hand pumps will work to inflate the Tomcat. The Wonder Pump 6, Item # 80010.01, combined with the Summit II Valve Adapter, # 38541.01, is an economical choice. I'm a real fan of the K-Pumps; the K-100, # 80072.01, is a compact model that's great to take along with you for pressure adjustments as you paddle. If you'd like to chat about other pump pros-and-cons, give us a call, 800.635.5202.

          Q:

          Are foot braces available for this IK? The only ones I see available (37318.01) are for the MaverIK which is Pennel Orca, not PVC.

            A:

            We do carry the footbraces that AIRE makes for their AIRE and Tributary IKs. These are part number 37316.01. Since AIRE and Tributary IKs use a bladder system, these braces bolt through the outer skin of the tubes and no glue is necessary.
