Hi Foldlite group, You guys need to hear my story so you know what kind of product you have.
I have been kayaking for many years and two summers ago I decided to take the kayak down the Clackamas river. I would estimate that the river was about a class 2 where I hit the bolder and fell out of the kayak. I heard a crack and thought I had broken it. When I got to shore, I dumped the water out of it and everything seemed to be fine so I finished my run. When I returned to my car and took the boat apart, I was shocked to find I had cracked two ribs and broken one. Even with this, the boat stayed together. I understand they have changed the ribs to a nearly unbreakable material. I recommend this boat to anyone who wants a high quality, nearly indestructible kayak. The best part was that Foldlite worked with me to replace the ribs and my boat is like new again. I could never have done that with regular kayak. I would have been sol and had to buy a new one.
