It's made by FirstLight, a New Zealand company.

You start with a backpack holding 20 pounds worth of parts and end up with a sea–going vessel that's 12 feet, 6 inches long.


The company claims it sets up in 20 minutes but I.D. magazine, which cited it for excellence, noted that their tester required two hours "even with the assistance of an instructional DVD and her 'mechanically gifted' 16–year–old niece."

Visit the company's media page here and watch all manner of fun movies showing their kayaks in action.


Kayaks start at $2,285 here.
