looking for a hiking kayak?

FirstLight® is advertised here as the world’s lightest folding kayak.

Weight is a far more important factor to me than seaworthiness. I want to hike in, paddle out. That kind of trip.

Weighing a mere 17.6 and 19.8 lbs, these amazing touring kayaks are incredibly light, yet fully seaworthy. Fast and lively, they allow excellent paddling speed & tracking.

FirstLight®-380: 23”x12’6”, 17.6 lbs., 238 lbs. capacity

FirstLight®-420: 23”x13’9”, 19.8 lbs., 253 lbs. capacity

  1. Not sure where you can find one cheaper, but I do recommend the Advanced Elements AdvanceFrame or AdvanceFrame Expedition inflatable kayak. They cost far less and are a lot of fun.
