Solves the whole wade versus ferry debate, doesn't it?
Only if your hiking poles convert into paddles...

looking at the pix on the site it looks more like it's just for kayaking it just makes it easier to get from trailhead/parking lot to the waters edge without having to carry that big akward kayak. there wouldn't be any room for anything else to fit inside the pack though and its 30lbs alone.
22 lbs Think I'll take the ferry.
Seriously, I would have loved to have something like this available in my younger, cross-country hiking days for lowland hikes.
Yeah, 30 lbs with paddles, 22 without?
They do make a backpacking inflatable raft that weighs about 4 pounds, if it comes to that.
Great for Boy Scouts. Have to tell my hubby.

Now if you made a kayak that became a backpack then you'd have something.
What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?
