60 reviews for Pelican Bandit NXT 80 Kayak, Blue

  1. cliffhanger

    Great beginner kayak for anyone – I bought these kayaks for a lake trip with my dad and it was fantastic. You don’t cut through the water like a regular kayak, you more float on top but you still move very easily and feel very.

  2. Son Of a Hillbilly

    Great all around Kayak! Very stable and tough! – I love this kayak. I have fished from a 17′ canoe and always felt uneasy and thought I was going to tip it over.

  3. Superish Mom

    Great kayak for LA lakes and bayous! – I bought two of these for my son and husband for Christmas. They fish out of the various lakes, canals, bayous, and rivers in Southeast LA and love them! They maneuver easily and the rod holders.


    Love the Kayak except… – Ordered the kayak online. The Academy Sports folks were great to work with. The kayak is terrific with one glitch. The snaps ion the straps that hold the seat in position are inadequate.

  5. John in TX

    Love it! – This is my first kayak. My problem has been that I couldn’t find one comfortable for my bad back and leg hamstrings that are tight.

  6. St Petes fl

    Perception access 9.5 kayak – One of the two kayaks that I purchased had a small guage near the seat. The color was not like the pictures a reviewed on the website.

  7. Redbeard51

    Great Kayak – I’ll start off by saying I’m 6’4 and 260 pounds. I took this kayak out for a 7 hour float fishing for small mouth.

  8. jrcrwilson

    Amazing kayak! – I bought this kayak for my husband who doesn’t really like the water but now loves kayaking with us! He said this was the best money ever spent. Very stable, well built, and worth every penny!.

  9. Kayakfam

    Amazing Ride! – I bought this online in July ’17. Arrived sooner than expected. DHL shipping did a perfect job. No dings or scratches during delivery. Now- to the kayak. I have ridden in a few different kayaks.

  10. SueG

    Great Kayak – I bought this kayak about a month ago & took it out a couple of times. I love this kayak! It was pricier than I wanted to pay but the features make it well worth the cost.

  11. Chuckie

    Great all around fishing kayak – Bought my Pro 120 a year ago for local bass fishing. It is my favorite of three I own. It is fast, tracks well and does great on lakes and rocky creeks.

  12. Burnsyb2084

    Lifetime kayaks make for a Lifetime of memories – I bought this kayaks on a whim. And I’m thankful I did because it has provided a tremendous sense of peace in my life. I now have 3 of these kayaks to share the experience with family and friends.

  13. Jade

    Great First Kayak – I got this kayak for my birthday about a year ago. I had never owned one before and I did a lot of research on it. This one seemed pretty awesome for begginers and intermediate.

  14. Aclary6623

    Great starter peddle kayak – For perceptions for peddle kayak I’d say it was a good one they stuck with the traditional pescador style and redesigned the center portion of it for the pilot drive. That bieng said I’m 5’6.

  15. JScott

    Great value – I have 5 hard shells but wanted these (bought 2) for road trips, just in case. So many times my wife and I have been somewhere without a kayak and wished we had one.

  16. MattinHouston

    Incredible Deal – Ok. This is a brand new tandem, with seats, that floats and retails at less than $400. The 5 star review could end here. But it doesn’t because it’s actually really nice.

  17. Christi728484942

    Plenty of room – Brought this a month ago my 4 year old loves it.plenty of room.

  19. Mdc0920

    Great Kayak – For the money you are not going to find a better 12 foot, large load kayak! I love touring on mine. Rough water or smooth it handles like a champ!.

  20. Floating Carrot

    Great Little Kayak – This is a good little kayak. Its not going to win any races, but it is easy for me, a 5’5″ woman, to carry up three flights of stairs and haul on top of my Prius.

  21. Happy Camper in Atlanta

    I bought this kayak for my 16 yr. old son. He is a medium build and this is perfect size for him maneuvering the lower mountain region rivers, and paddling around in the gulf of Mexico.

  22. Houston

    Perfect for camping multiple nights. – Very stable and plenty of dry storage for camping trips.

  23. Jevans7

    Great kayak! – I love his kayak and recommend it to anyone! It is affordable and lot of fun!.

  24. Plamen

    I’ve bought last year Bandit 100- the precious generation of NXT 100, do not see any difference besi… Show Full Review This action will open a modal dialog.

  25. Gibby13

    I picked the Bandit and the Stinger from Pelican at local store in EP TX . on clearance last week ( Boat Sale ) . I have the Bandit – 300 lbs max.

  26. Ericaswan10

    Wanted a kayak for a long time . It’s easy to paddle and has plenty of room in it . It’s fun for in the river to get around on a beautiful day 🙂 ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  27. Jen2104

    We just upgraded our girls from a 6′ lifetime (kids kayak from walmart) They are LOVING them. We have made a few trips now with them.

  28. CleoT

    My husband and I are just getting started with kayaks. After enjoying an inflatable, we decided to buy a sit-on-top model the would allow our small dog to ride on the bow without squashing.

  29. AlwaysFishing

    It’s light, easy to haul around, stable, fast, Even had off the beach in some chop. Will buy a second one. ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  30. Vm55

    Great kayak!! – I bought one and just going over it, reading reviews, and planning opportunities to take it out with my wife. I went back and bought another one!! So we now have two perception-predator 12′.

  31. ugeauxgirl

    I bought this kayak for our camp at the river. I am a small woman, and I like it because its super light, so I can wrestle it down to the water by myself. Its perfect for calm water kayaking.

  32. chappy60

    For my first kayak, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. The Pelican Bandit fit the bill for me on a July 4th sale!! It was recommended to me by a very experienced kayaker who said that it.

  33. Parrothead Mark

    Have owned this for a little over a month now and been on our local creeks, rivers and inland bays in Central Delaware. Very easy to load an unload from rooftop car rack, tracks great, easy.

  34. Big Ric

    Terrific fun for the entire family. Appears to track ok and is highly manuverable. The kids and wife fight over who gets to paddle it at the lake.

  35. Tojo

    Excellent value! – I purchased this kayak in June 2018 and it has been great. It has lockable storage on the front and rear. It comes with two accessory rails and a mountable rod holder.

  36. NinjaDobie

    I was looking for an affordable entry level kayak for a local river by my house. I went with a sit on top style so I could try to bring my dog along with me. This kayak has been great.

  37. Stac

    The staff at dicks was great. Very helpful getting this down from display.… Show Full Review This action will open a modal dialog.

  38. Ohyo

    Bang for buck – One of the best kayak I’ve ever used. Lacking on features however add what you want.

  39. aarndtster

    Did allot of research and bought this for the wife and she loves it. This Pelican model super stable for a smaller model and tracks surprisingly well through the water.

  40. Chadfishing

    Best bang for buck – The catch 100 is my first kayak ever and I was nervous about it at first but love this thing it is stable I can fish from it all day. I have lower back problems and the sweaty that comes with.

  41. Etcl

    Very stable – My husband has been out on it once so far and really liked it. He was afraid he wouldn’t be able to stand up but he tried it out and everything went great. He said it rode comfortably.

  42. Viking52

    This is my first kayak, and the Pelican Bandit was an excellent choice. The construction appears to be very high quality.

  43. Manuel79

    The BEAST! – I’ve owned my Catch 120 for almost 3 years now and I have seen my friends go through several kayaks only to end up getting a Catch 120 themselves. I’ve fished lakes, rivers, creeks, ponds and.

  44. girlcanfish

    Great for bass fishing – I bought this last year because of a bad back. I needed something lighter that could fit in the a small SUV.

  45. A fisherman

    A company worth buying from – On top of great products they provide great services. I’ve had my kayak nearly 5 years now and it had a few defects I was willing to look over for a while.

  46. Josh

    Such a great kayak for such a great price! – I’ve had this kayak for about 3 years now and it’s done great. I’ve kayak camped for a week and it had no problem carrying all my great in and on top while still providing stability and.

  47. Yoflip

    Good Value…some cons. – I’ve had this for about 2 months and have been on lakes and a 4 day river trip. This boat is stable and can hold a lot of gear. Good for fishing.

  48. Superjr345

    For the strong. – Recently bought this(May 2019) to go down rivers. First time use was great and so on. It submerged in the river only because I was a jacka and rode it down a cliff.

  49. GeminiMM

    I bought two of these kayaks last week on Memorial Day. They were on sale for $179 each. The cashier said if I applied for a Dick’s card I’d get $40 off.

  50. Julia6430

    Nice 8′ kayak – Needed an 8′ for my niece. It is perfect. I took it out a couple of times.

  51. Trumbull32

    Light and easy! – I am a new kayaker and a petite gal at 5 ft 4. This bandit is a dream! It fits inside of my CRV with the passenger seat down. It’s light enough for me to carry and lift.

  52. Eloc

    Good price, kids love it! – I bought this kayak for my 11 y.o. daughter, and she really enjoys it. The quality is commensurate with price. I think it’s a good value.

  53. NJKayaker

    Premium Kayak at Value Price – Spent about a year researching various kayaks in this domain but ended up going with the Old Town Topwater 106 PDL for a variety of reasons. The price is phenomenal and is loaded with all of.

  54. Mikemas

    Excellent, – High quality strong very good for light seas in ocean.

  55. texascae

    great kayak for senior – I have had sit in kayaks for 5 years. As a 72 year old I found getting in and out was sometimes difficult.

  56. Canadian bacon

    Part replacement – I lost the snap attachment for the back support on the seat for my kayak.

  57. Charlie Brown

    Great for Price – I have had mine for about eight months and been a good beginner fishing kayak. I have been white water kayak for years and wanted a starter fishing kayak to see how we’re with pedal system.

  58. JustinU1X

    My new favorite pastime! – I was on the fence about getting a kayak but I’m glad I did. It’s been the best summer of fishing that I can remember.
