Oru Kayak Bay+

£155.00 £1,250.00

The outstanding Oru Kayak: it's a proper kayak, that folds into a box. 

On the water it glides like a dream. It's stable enough for beginners, while the length and contouring make it fast and sporty for expert kayakers. There's plenty of room to stash gear (or a picnic) for day trips and microadventures. 

Its also a design icon. Like most of our favourite products, it launched on Kickstarter and is now even in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Yes it folds to store, but we've seen plenty hung on the wall in all their iconic unfolded glory.

Once folded into the box (Oru is Japanese for fold) it measures just 80x70x30. Take it wherever you go: on the tube, train, bus, plane, taxi. Sling it in your car boot. Store it in a cupboard. Ease of portability and storage means it's perfect for sharing. Its also perfect for on river  microadventures. Cruise your way down, catch public transport home!

The Bay+ is the second generation model, and benefits from a heap of learning on the original model. It packs a whole list of features for added comfort, convenience and style. An adjustable seat keeps your back and legs happy for the long haul. Extra deck straps make storing gear easy. We really like the good sized screw out deck hatch, perfect for snacks, sunglasses, hip flasks, cameras and phones (for added protection, there's a watertight bag to slip these inside). Stainless steel ratchet buckles make assembly smooth and fast, a big improvement on the original plastic buckels. And custom deck graphics add extra flair.
