Lifetime Lancer 100 kayak review

Since I posted this review yesterday I’ve done a little bit of research and found out this kayak sells for ~$180 at Wal-Mart. A pretty good deal, in my opinion, for an entry level, beginner’s kayak. Obviously is sells for much less money than I expected because I thought it was probably a $300 kayak.

The rear hatch is not bulkheaded so don’t expect anything back there to stay dry if it isn’t in a dry bag.

I paddled it on French Creek from Rt. 97 between Union City and Waterford, PA to Rt. 6N near Mill Village which was ~9.5 paddling miles and the boat was quite comfortable for that distance.

    • Austin, I really don’t know. I typically paddle high end performance boats so I don’t really know what the landscape looks like for boats similar to the Lancer. Always try to paddle it before you buy it, if you can.


  1. We bought one last fall in Kentucky. I have always used a Sin Dolphin and loved it but bought this on for more weight capacity. I am a bilateral amputee and I love kayaking and fishing from a kayak. The Lancer is heavier on land but, flies on the water. It will probably outlast me but, I love it. I would buy another on in a heartbeat especially if it was a little lighter. But, I love this 10 footer.
