Originally named the Chelan Tandem HB XL, the updated 15 ft. Aquaglide Chelan 155 HB XL inflatable kayak is perfect for paddlers needing that extra bit of space - for a child, a furry friend or gear. Designed for recreational touring and all-around use, the Aquaglide Chelan HB flagship series is constructed from a commercial grade smooth-skin Duratex hull material which dries quickly.
For added comfort, the PRO-performance seats provide an array of thoughtful features including adjustable air cushion, high backrest, plentiful mesh storage pockets, integrated fishing-rod holders, and fore and aft seat straps so that you can enjoy your time on the water to its fullest. High-performance fin system includes stiff, durable, posi-track fin with Philips head screw and plate. Comes with a convenient backpack travel bag.

The Chelan 155 HB is constructed with four molded carrying handles
(bow, stern and both sides) but – if not in a windy situation – can also be carried by hooking the side of the kayak over your shoulder.
Two splash guards – front and rear – extend partly over the seating well and help prevent water from splashing in.
Twelve upper plastic d-rings
(six each side) Used to attach the seats as well as gear, and six cloth d-rings each side of the outer hull along with the rub guard – also for the optional decks or attaching more gear. The upper d-rings are spaced from 14 to 19 inches apart and begin 68 inches from the bow.
There are three military valves
For the floor and side chambers, and one twistlock for the seat base.
The padded, inflatable Pro-Formance seat
Features adjustable side straps which quickly clip into position. The straps can be adjusted up to 15 inches. The seat bases are 16 inches wide by 16 inches deep and can be inflated up to 5 inches, dependent on your comfort level. Two mesh pockets and two side d-rings are found on the front of the seat base, as well as a velcro strip for attaching an optional cup holder.
A third, padded jumper seat
Perfect for kids – measures 10 inches wide, by 16 inches long and 4 to 6 inches deep; this features a twist-lok inflation valve with velcro to position on the floor. A velcro tab locks the twist-lok into position so it doesn’t accidentally “get kicked” while paddling. The jumper seat attaches to the kayak via the velcro floor strip.
The Seat Back
Equipped with 2 fishing rod holders, one d-ring on each side and a deep mesh storage pocket (measuring 5 x 8 x 9 inches) for gear. The backs are 12 inches tall in a 1-inch thick padded foam with “breathable” mesh, encircling 26-inches wide. A velcro tab locks the twist-lok into position so it doesn’t accidentally “get bumped” while paddling.
The floor is constructed from a 6 PSI high-pressure, drop-stitch material
Designed as “raised seating,” creating four 3.5 inch deep side-wall cutouts that collect any water splashing inside; each side-well has a drain plug (not to be confused with self-bailing) which can be opened to let water out.
Two 100-inch velcro strips
Centered on the floor three inches apart, and are used to position the seats and foot braces. The foot braces are padded – 10 x 3 inches long – with extending strips 8 inches in length.
The foot braces are padded
10 x 3 inches long – with extending strips 8 inches in length.

The tracking fin is hefty
Measuring 5.5 x 12 inches with locking pin.
The bow and stern feature a rugged “molded” snout.
