Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Slightly larger than its 10 ft. cousin the Citibot, the Folbot Gremlin 120 folding kayak offers the same portability with increased volume, length and capacity. Maybe you can't store a hard-shell at home, or maybe you want to explore local waters like a beach or a lake; either way, you'll want a Folbot. It sets up in about 10 min., and folds up into a pack that you can store in your car's trunk or your gear closet. Thanks to a clever tensioning device in the rear of the kayak, you can first assemble the frame and then insert it into the skin, streamlining the set-up process. The Gremlin 120 is easy to manage on calm waters, and it offers excellent stability and surprisingly responsive tracking for a boat of its size. Used by roofers, the military and whitewater-raft makers, a synthetic rubber material called Elvaloy is tough like a rhino's hide and protects the hull of the Gremlin. Urethane-coated polyester protects the decks; all outer materials on the Folbot Gremlin resist UV light and are designed to take a beating without puncturing. Frame of the Gremlin is just as sturdy as its skin, with stainless-steel keel brackets (say that 3 times fast), aircraft-grade tubing and anodized aluminum cross pieces. Inflatable chambers called sponsons run the full length of the boat to increase tension and lock frame pieces into place; sponsons also flare out the hull to enhance stability. Seat and footpegs adjust to create a comfortable position in the cockpit. Easy-to-open zippers with high-strength zipper heads offer access to interior of kayak; rip-and-stick stormflaps and water-resistant closures keep things sealed up tight. Solid aluminum strip protects the bow and stern keels. What's included? Your kayak will come inside its backpack with skin, frame, 2 foot braces, 2 air sponsons, 2 safety bladders, and inflatable seat.
