Canoe fits into a backpack

Foldable Canoe

Another option for spur of the moment boaters has surfaced with the Adhoc canoe, which can be folded to fit in a backpack and weighs only 9 pounds.

Created by Israeli designer Ori Levin, the single passenger Adhoc is made of a carbon fiber frame and a hull made of the same material as that used in racing sails. Locking mechanisms secure the telescoping framework poles at bow and stern and a center folding mechanism holds the boat firm in the middle.
