They seem like a shitty inflatable kayak to me. If someone came up with a good design for an IK that had a closed deck, I could see that catching on, much easier to travel with than a creekboat.

The whole point of these boats is that they weigh next to nothing (under 5 lbs.). They are made for people going on treks that need to make some big river crossings or want to do some down river travel on class I or II. Think about a week or two week trip through the bush in Alaska. The rivers up there are often to big to cross without a boat. It the 'Into the Wild' kid had one of these boats he would have been able to get out pretty easy.

Glad to see they put a pad in for your ass, otherwise the hike out might be painful.

They seem pretty versatile and manueverable. The weight distribution places most of the paddler's weight at the stern and it looks like they rear endo too easily.

This video is awesome.



<5 pounds? Could be sweet for runs with a long hike in.
