The tubes are made from 0.9mm thick 1000 Denier PVC ( ±0.02mm) which weighs 1116 grams m2
To use: Inflate the wall tubes to approx. 5 PSI and the drop stitch floor to 10PSI. Please bear in mind on a warm day you may experience pressure drop when the kayak is placed in cold water as the air in the kayak contracts. This is normal and you can either pump a bit more in beforehand or wait until it has cooled down and top it up.
