These appear to have disappeared from the market, which is a good thing. While I appreciate what the designers were trying to accomplish- a lightweight, modular, low-cost boat, unfortunately they had absolutely no understanding of the task, or of boat design. Where most folding kayaks have frames made of wood or aluminum tubing, the Foldlite used corrugate plastic sheets. Where quality folders used 1100-1200 denier PVC or Hypalon-coated polyester or high-tensile welded Urethane for hulls, Foldlite used a non-ripstop 300 denier silicone coated polyester- the kind of material used by ultralight campers for rainflies. The boats had no tracking ability, no provision for secondary floatation for safety, and no protection against abrasion. If you still see one for sale, avoid it- no matter how cheap it is. This is a boat only a personal injury attorney could love.
