Met some Casita folks who use them at the Oregon Coast Gathering. They live in Lakewood, just north of you. Their names are Paul and Sharon Lavell. You might try the Casita forum.

I have one. It's light easy to set up and strong. Ck their website for the guy who beats it with a hammer and throws it off a roof. This is my first kayak and have only paddled a couple others. I find it fast and easy to paddle and not effected much by wind. Folded and in its shipping box it is not small at 33 1/2x29x13 1/2, I use it on lakes and low classed rivers.

We have a Folbot folding kayak that comes in two bags. We have the Greenland two-person kayak. It's not necessarily lighter but it is easier to manage. It fits in the back of our Jeep rather than having to be on the roof. And it is much more forgiving since the sides flex. We have yet to roll it over.

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.

Living my advanced elements inflatable too!
12 minutes from bag to water a few days ago - so much easier than struggling with my glass boat. (roof top carrier, straps, ropes, locks - oy!)
