MyCanoe Origami Folding Canoe
Everything’s better when it folds, particularly if you live in a cramped city apartment. The MyCanoe Origami Folding Canoe can literally slide under your bed for storage in the colder months and then can be brought to the lake in even the most compact of cars, assembling to an 14 foot adventure-ready canoe in about ten minutes. Uniquely, the carrying case becomes the floor of the canoe so you’ve got nothing to leave behind or worry about, and there’s room to sit two adults comfortably (with a max load of 440 pounds). While the building material may appear flimsy it’s rated to 20,000 fold cycles, and the fact that it’s double-layered — plus the four stabilizing ribs on the inside — make for a very steady, hard-to-capsize canoe despite its portability. It’s also compatible with a range of accessories such as inflatable side stabilizers to boost the weight limit and an oar lock kit to help make paddling on both sides simultaneously easier. Hell, it’ll even work with small trolling motors. And when you’re done exploring and ready to head home, it folds back up in five minutes flat.
