Welcome to our 3rd “I Didn’t Know I Wanted That” post, where we cover awesome adventure, outdoors & automotive gear in one constant stream of recommendations. Today we’re showing off one of the coolest kayaks ever designed and manufactured en masse, the first foldable kayak by Oru Kayak.

We’re really excited to spread the word further about this particular product because it fits perfectly with the needs of our overlanding audience. If you’re an overlander, you know how valuable space can be and kayaks can be…unwieldy…to say the least. If you’re looking for a premium yet compact solution, then Oru Kayak might be one the best choices available so far.

Oru Kayak Haven Overview

For the purpose of this post, we’ll take a look at the largest variant of the foldable Oru Kayak, the Tandem variant, which can be comfortably used by two persons. As per Oru Kayak, “Built for two, the Haven TT is a folding tandem with impeccable performance and unmatched portability.” – basically get the most out of your kayak while still consuming a small amount of space in your truck / camper / whatever vehicle you’re adventuring with.

Key Features:

  • 16’1″ tandem kayak that folds down to a manageable box.
  • At 41 pounds, this origami kayak is half the weight of a traditional double kayak.
  • It’s compact enough to store in your closet and transport in your car.
  • Created from 5 mm double-layered, custom-extruded polypropylene with a 10-year UV treatment.
  • Oru Kayaks are incredibly puncture + abrasion resistant and built to last.
