If you are an experienced kayaker looking for a folding kayak that will allow you to travel long distances and even go on expeditions, you definitely want to check out the Long Haul folding kayaks. The Mark I is a slightly more complicated skin-on-frame design for touring or expeditions.

As one of the heaviest folding kayaks on the market, this boat is both more robust and less portable than other models. But the Mark I Long Haul offers paddlers a high level of comfort, stability, and reliability allowing them to paddle into rough conditions.

Other features include an 8” keel strip, 12 D-rings on deck, and grab handles at both the bow and stern of the kayak. Each Mark I comes with a comfortable seat, a packing sleeve, and a bag for portability.
