27 Examples of Portable Sports Equipment

From Flexible Folding Kayaks to Travel-Ready Yoga Mats

— October 25, 2016 — Lifestyle
When it comes to exercise, many students are turning to portable sport equipment to ensure that they can fit their favorite activity into their busy schedule. Whether it is yoga, basketball or even kayaking, there is a whole host of new products available to help consumers stay active and engaged.

When it comes to everyday exercise, yoga has become a popular choice for people of all ages. As a result, companies are coming up with new and innovative ways to make it easier for consumers to practice yoga on a whim. Some of these innovative products include ultra-thin mats that can be folded into a travel-friendly size, mats with built-in carrying straps for easy transport and even inflatable yoga studios that allow for pop-up hot yoga classes to be held.

Beyond yoga, other sports equipment is also being modified to complement modern, on-the-go lifestyles. For instance, there is a portable basketball net called the Blacknet Basketball Net that can be used to make old courts functional again. Similarly, companies such as Oru Coast and Pakayak have created collapsible and modular kayaks that are far easier to transport than conventional models.
