  • Great for apartment dwellers and others who don't have the storage space for a traditional, rigid kayak; packed dimensions are 18 x 11 x 9 in.
  • Suited to both flatwater and moderate river current, the Twist loads easily in your car and packs compactly into your multiday backpack
  • Lite-Pack natural rubber and polyester laminate offers a soft touch against your skin, low weight and compact storage when deflated and folded
  • Specialized manufacturing process vulcanizes the natural rubber compound on the interior of the fabric, resulting in durable construction that tolerates high interior pressure
  • High interior pressure translates into a stiff inflatable boat that handles responsively and resists bending when inflated
  • PVC-free construction reduces environmental impact
  • Rigid I-beam floor construction provides good tracking and its 3 main air chambers help ensure you'll stay afloat
  • Fold-down backrest offers adjustable support via inflation
  • Removable fin improves tracking, especially when heavily loaded
  • Folds compactly into its own stuff-sack-sized nylon bag, included
  • Bungee rigging on stern deck stows extra gear
  • Asymmetrically located carry handles assist in portaging kayak to and from the water
