Oru, The Kayak that you can take on a plane.


Oru Kayak assembly.

Commentary: I’ll be excited to see what the price on this ends up being. Imagine a kayak that ways 25 lbs and extends to 12′ long, but it folds up like an origami crane and can be taken on an airplane.

    n the storage Press: I used just plain Borax powder to sit in saucers to get rid of roaches which works very well.

    Price for this Kayak, $850.00 plus up to $75.00 shipping. Delivery should be by June 2013, or so the site says.
    Just wondering how well the folds will hold up, after opening and folding it up, for usage.
