This Kayak Collapses So You Can Carry It like a Backpack

Pakayak may be the best name ever for a kayak company, but there is a reason for that name. The Bluefin 14 is a kayak that collapses down so small that you can carry it on your back.

The days of you having to tow your kayak on your car roof or hauling it in a cargo trailer are over, thanks to this kayak, which combines comfortable touring performance with an amazing portable modular design.

All of the individual modules nest, allowing them to bundle into a single pile that you can strap on your shoulders for a large kayak backpack. The Pakayak Bluefin 14 measures 14 feet long when assembled. When packed, it measures just 3 1/2 feet long, so it’ll easily fit in the back of your SUV or even in the back seat or trunk of a car.

The whole thing weighs 55 pounds, so it does make for a heavy backpack, but it’s still much easier to carry than a traditional kayak. It will come out later this year for $1,695(USD).
