A few years ago, Oru created a kayak that could fold up like origami. Their latest design is the smallest yet, packing up into a suitcase that’s small enough to fit just about anywhere. Somehow they managed to fold a 10-foot boat down to just 42″ L x 19″ H x 10″ W. An optional pack lets you carry it and your paddle on your back.
This lightweight, transparent canoe-kayak hybrid is made from vacuum-formed Lexan, letting you and a friend see through to the water, rocks, and sea life below your boat. A double UV layer prevents yellowing, and the frame is made from T6 6061 anodized aluminum. Substantial discounts available when buying 2 or more kayaks.
Want a kayak, but don’t have the storage space for one? The Pakayak disassembles from a 14-foot boat into a 3.5 foot-long package thanks to pieces that nest inside one another. They’re small enough to fit multiples inside an SUV, or to even carry one on your back.
