Designed to make the outdoors more accessible for everyone, the Oru Coast Origami Kayak ($1,775) uses a patented origami technology which allows it to be folded into a compact box—small enough to fit in a car trunk, closet, or airplane.
Four inches longer that the original Bay origami kayak (successfully launched in 2012), this new version measures 16 feet and it’s made for rough waters and multi-day trips, promising great speed, tracking, and stability. The Coast boasts a rugged 2 layer polypropylene construction, weighs in at just 31 pounds, and takes around 10 minutes to setup. It also features adjustable footrests and a large rear bulkhead for storage, with plenty of space for your gear (400 lbs max. weight capacity). Inside the Oru Kayak box you can fit all the loose components, plus a paddle, a personal flotation device, and other accessories you might need in your expedition. The Origami Kayaks are proudly made in California.
