Pakboats XT-15 Solo
We love paddling this kayak. 23 inch beam and moderate volume makes it a great kayak for day tripping or a few days of camping. Its speed makes miles easy, and great stability lets you relax and enjoy the ride.
This is a proven travel kayak. We paddled samples in Europe twice before XTs were even in production. That involved seven flights on several airlines, six train rides and an assortment of buses and subways. The coast of Norway is a fantastic place for kayak touring!

With an extremely stiff design, the Pakboat XT-15 Solo folding kayak performs with the feel of your favorite hardshell kayak, but it packs down to a fraction of the size. The XT model features I-beams on either side, dramatically improving stiffness and boat responsiveness. Simple assembly takes approximately 30 min.; Pakboat XT stores in a 34 x 15 x 14 in. bag, included. Rugged, abrasion-resistant PVC-coated synthetic fabric skin fits tightly over frame, creating clean lines and smooth paddling. Anodized aluminum frame is strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant; longer sections of frame are shockcorded like tent poles to ease assembly. 3 longitudinal components-2 I-beams and a hinged keel-attach to cross members inside skin to create a taut, easy-to-assemble craft that anyone can put together. Inflatable tubes with 6 separate compartments between frame and skin increase tautness, ensure flotation and eliminate pressure points. Sling seat suspends your weight above the floor of the boat, and an integrated backband offers excellent lower-back support. Optional self-inflating hip pads and inflatable thigh supports dial in fit; includes attachment points for thigh straps (thigh straps sold separately, hip pads not included). Removable deck effectively seals out water; simply hook over the ends of the hull and attach with a rip-and-stick seal. Includes pump, repair kit and storage bag.
