Gear Review – Paddle Cat by Hyside
Early season gear testing on the Vermillion River in Hastings, MN. Hard Water Sports has added a Hyside Paddle Cat to our fleet of rafts and inflatable kayaks.
Super excited to get the Paddle Cat in moving water, the Vermillion River is the first river to open in Minnesota and with the new raft I was ready for the season opener.
First off – my contact at Hyside,, Brandon, was super helpful about getting Hard Water Sports set up with the Paddle Cat. Even with custom lettering the raft was delivered it time for the exceptionally early Minnesota paddling season.
Made of Haplon, this cat-a-raft weighs in at only 50 lbs, made to be paddled tandem or solo.
