Trekkayak: inflatable ‘cataraft’

0998748c6291e317209e80430e6d88dd_largeInteresting new Swedish portable raft concept running on Kickstarter. Three kilo raft running PU bladders in a Cordura shell and proper IK valves.
ruscatraftLooks narrow and long in the video so most suited to flat water use, but using a pump (as opposed to an airbag) to inflate the cat hulls, it might be quite nippy. What is missing IMO is seat or backrest: a way of bracing for paddling efficiency (unless it’s luggage). ruscatLooks a  similar idea to this Russian design on the right and left..
