... you could consider a Wenonah Vagabond, but make it a composite version to get the light weight that you are looking for. That'll be cheaper than a lot of the "nice", so-called "pack canoes" that are available in somewhat larger sizes than the true pack canoes (and I agree, the true pack canoes are probably too small for you when carrying camping gear, except perhaps on small, quiet waters). The Vagabond is not exactly "inspiring", but it moves along pretty darned quickly. With a double-blade paddle you'll keep up with any normal kayaker. Short, true pack canoes will not be nearly as fast.
