The K-Pak is an innovatively engineered folding backpack boat devised by North Carolina-based Folding Boat Company in a bid to shake up the burgeoning folding boat market. While there are other folding water vessels out there, what makes the K-Pak a unique offering is the fact that it comes equipped with inflatable elements as well as a folding skeleton, giving you the best of both worlds, namely light weight and compactness.
This particular backpack boat's skeleton is inspired by a tent frame in that interlocking elements are strung together to create the master structure, while the inflatable sections further contribute to the compactness of the K-Pak when not in use. What's more, the K-Pak only takes minutes to assemble.
If you're in the market for a boat that you can easily transport to the water and set up without hassle, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option than the $875 K-Pak.
