Living in Southern California, we're huge fans of ocean kayaking, yet find it pretty tough to fit kayaks into our midsize cars. San Francisco based Oru knows the struggle and has been creating compact and 'foldable' kayaks for years. Their latest iteration - the Oru Kayak Coast XT - is their biggest kayak yet and can support up to 400 pounds. The form is based off of traditional Arctic canoes and measures at 33" x 12" x 19" fully compacted and only 34 pounds, much lighter and more portable than standard ocean kayaks. The longer build profile allows you to travel faster and with more stability than past models. The Coast XT is not cheap, costing $2499, but the convenience and ease of travel make it worth it.
