Anchor is constructed of steel, with an anti-rust powder coating. Comes with a 40' marine-grade rope, marker buoy, and padded storage bag. Also comes with an additional free dry bag. Anchor folds up easily for storage.
Some reports of the plastic fastener on the dry bag breaking easily.
Galvanized folding anchor comes with a 40' line, marker buoy, and nylon storage bag. Prong locking mechanism works well to keep it locked open when in use and locked closed when stored. Lightweight, yet holds well.
Some buyers had issues with the quality of the casting (nicks, imperfections). The marker buoy is small and white, which means it may be difficult to find if you have to come back for it.
Sturdy. Easy to clean. Folds up quickly with one hand. Anchor comes with a red marker buoy, padded nylon storage bag, and 25' of marine-grade rope.
The rope is a little thick and pretty short for an anchor line. Some felt that the storage bag could have been a little larger.
Comes in a wide variety of weights, from 1.5 lb. to 17.5 lb. Constructed of corrosive-resistant galvanized steel. Durability at a really good price. Works best with coral, stone, heavy weeds, and other surfaces where it can get a bite.
This is just the anchor itself; you'll have to add your own line and marker buoy. Some buyers say the locking slide comes unlocked too easily.
Your choice of red painted galvanized steel or stainless steel (although the latter will cost you considerably more). Good quality and price. Comes with 25' of rope with a snap hook, marker buoy, and padded nylon storage bag. Easy to transport.
The line isn't long enough, and some question its durability. Some reports of this option arriving with defects or missing rivets.

Kayaking is a great way to explore oceans and rivers, as well as get in a great workout. If you take your kayak out beyond the shore or prefer to keep it in the water when you’re not using it then you might want to purchase a kayak anchor. These small anchors resemble those used on big boats but tend to be smaller and quite lightweight – many are actually made out of durable plastic. Most kayak boat anchors come with a line, a clip to connect to your kayak, and a carrying case. If you plan to anchor your kayak in rougher waters we encourage you to look for a full metal anchor to make sure your craft doesn’t float away.
