It doesn't get much easier than this. A new company has developed an entire rigid kayak that breaks down into small pieces that fit inside of each other like Russian nesting dolls. Once it's fully broken down, it's the size of a back pack and can be schlepped wherever you're headed.
Weighing just 55 pounds, the Pakayak is very light for a kayak and pretty damn heavy for a back pack. The 14-footer is fully waterproof, as you might suspect, rolls like a usual kayak, and is sturdier than folding or inflatable versions.
The team at Pakayak claims the whole thing, with its patented clamping system, can be assembled in under five minutes. Between the ability to store it in a space as small as a New York apartment and the quick assembly, it's less hassle than dealing with Apple's constant upgrades. It makes kayaks accessible for people living in urban locations or who don't have a truck capable of hauling a boat to the river.
