I second that, we have two of the Advanced Frame Kayaks, inflatables but made out of very heavy duty materials. We added the optional "backbone" which provides additional rigidity. They fold up into a suitcase sized bag and weigh under 40 lbs with the paddles.
Initially picked them up when we still had a sailboat and kept them when we sold the boat. Have used them on rivers as well as the ocean, best trip was kayaking near Isla Espiritu Santo in Baja... miss those days but working on new adventures.
