This is the ultimate expedition folding kayak and I can say that without reservations after returning from another trip in the Danube Delta and on the Black Sea.
The boat takes a lot of gear and yet flies through the surf. Extremely durable and stable while sailing through 25 knots gusts, yet easy to paddle on narrow channels. We have the customized Commando version of the Mark II. We just tested the boat in the Everglades in December. Excellent kayak for paddling and sailing. Yes, a bit heavy, but worth every ounce when you expect it to stay together while sailing fully loaded in the surf.
Can't wait to take it back to the Everglades this December.

This is the story of the first 76.4 miles water journey paddling and sailing our new Long Haul Mark II Commando folding kayak in the beautiful and quite challenging Everglades National Park. Enjoy!
