Adhoc Folding Canoe for a Quick Water Getaway

by Range

Have you ever felt the need for an emergency boat? Nope, me neither. Well, in any case, the Israeli designer Ori Levin from Tsor Design created Adhoc, a full-sized canoe that can be folded into a bag of the size of a standard backpack. Not bad. Now, in case of a zombie apocalypse near a body of water, you’ll be ready no matter what.

The Adhoc weighs only about 9 lbs., and the materials used were carefully selected to be lightweight and resilient. They include carbon fiber and Aramid, a sort of heat-resistant fabric used in racing sails. There is a corner lock that holds the telescopic poles in check and a parasol-like mechanism in the center so that the overall structure is maintained.

The boat can be assembled in about 5 minutes, which makes it a lot quicker than inflatable rafts. Although those can be inflated automatically with air canisters, I’m sure that people will find a use for this portable canoe.
