Two-Man Canoe Folds Into a Suitcase for Quick Getaways

Take that, Noah

You know that guy Noah? With the ark?

No one ever talks about how lucky he was. Dude had an omniscient being on speed dial who told him a flood was coming enough days in advance that he was able to build a giant wooden ship.

Most of us will never be so lucky. Which is why it pays to have a getaway boat. And no boat gets away quicker than ONAK, the “origami foldable canoe.”

Now on Kickstarter (and already funded), ONAK is a two-man, 15-foot vessel that weighs just 27 pounds. And when it’s not in use, it folds up into a wheeled case measuring 16″ x 48″ x 10″ … or about the size of a large checked bag.

The boat can withstand up to 550 pounds of passenger, and it’s made from a proprietary, patent-pending material that’s stiff, strong and 100% recyclable.

You’ve got three more days to pick one up for the preorder price of $1,100, and they ship to anywhere in the world.

Your move, Mr. Noah.
