Product Description

The origami kayak for everyone, the Inlet is our lightest, most portable, and easiest to assemble boat yet. Designed for use on flat water, this boat is playful and light. You can store it just about anywhere. Get ready to streamline your entire kayaking experience.

When not in use, the Inlet folds down into a box half the height of our existing kayaks. Most of the new perks of this model can be attributed to the ingenuity of the SHINY.

New fold pattern – Redesigned for the first time in our history, this new design focuses on efficiency and will streamline your entire kayaking experience, from box to boat to water and back. Thanks to this new fold pattern and problem-solving skills of our design team, the Inlet as fewer loose components to put in place and far fewer assembly steps. No sweat required, easier and intuitive— for everyone.

The Inlet’s fold pattern focuses on efficiency and will streamline your entire kayaking experience, from box to boat to water and back. Every fold was designed to nest and fit perfectly, eliminating wasted space and make the smallest box possible. No garage, SUV or roof racks required. Stash it in a trunk. Check it on a plane. Store it behind your couch. Hike it into remote waters.

Oru Kayaks are made from a custom polypropylene, with a 10 year UV treatment, and a 20,000 fold cycle rating! While the hull is designed to take a beating, we suggest you treat your kayak like a fiberglass boat.

The Inlet is NOT compatible with the Oru Pack

Features and Details:

  • Folds from box to boat in 3-5 minutes
  • Weighs just 20 lbs. – less than half the weight of a traditional kayak
  • Stash it pretty much anywhere: your trunk, closet, boat, garage, van, even under your bed
  • 10 foot kayak that folds up into the size of a large handbag
  • Our super comfy custom pack lets you trek to remote water that’s never floated a boat
  • Fairings – velcro for quick closure and easy grip handle for carrying
  • Adjustable footrest – keep your legs comfortable during paddling
  • Buckle-closure system – side release buckles for easy and intuitive assembly
  • Adjustable backrest – fully adjustable with padding for the long haul
  • Removable bulkheads – provide structure and organized storage compartments
  • Tension strap – added strength and rigidity
  • Made of 5mm double-layered custom-extruded polypropylene
  • Lightweight and extraordinarily strong
  • Withstands sliding over smooth rocks or bumping into obstacles under the water
  • Manufacturer-rated for 20,000 fold cycles
  • 10-year UV treatment

Warranty:

  • 1 year manufacture warranty

Cares:

  • Avoid unnecessary dragging or bumping – use the carry handles to lift, instead of tugging it behind you
  • Store out of direct sunlight
  • Rinse the kayak thoroughly with fresh water after each use – sediment and salt that dry to the surface of the boat can be abrasive over time 
  • Oru kayaks are designed to be easily repairable if anything should wear out over time. Our repairs team is happy to help!

    To be honest, I was somewhat hesitant to buy the Haven based on some online reviews. It seems that the single kayaks made by Oru have satisfied owners; however, there are some concerns from owners of the tandems. MEC’s return policy and guarantee encouraged us to give it a try.
    We are completely satisfied with the Haven and have not experienced any negative issues related to quality or ease of assembly. The portability and overall performance in the water are difficult to beat. While not at the same level of performance of real kayak, the Haven is relatively quick, stable with good tracking. It’s definitely better than an inflatable.
    If you desire portability and lack storage space, it’s hard to beat.
