It Packs Inside Itself Like Russian Dolls

You’ve heard of the Russian Matryoshka dolls, the wooden dolls of decreasing sizes that all fit inside of each other, right?  Well, that’s how Pakayaks work.


Pakayak’s hard-shell nesting kayaks stack up (wink, wink) against the competition!



Pakayak is The Ultimate Kayak that fits…

  • in your closet
  • in your car
  • in the elevator
  • in your apartment
  • in your RV
  • on your power boat
  • on the train
  • in your life!

Now, you can have a kayak that fits in your life and sacrifices nothing! A packable kayak without compromise.


Easy to store, easy to move, easy to assemble, all making it easy to explore and have fun. Think about it. You just need a few minutes to get out of the office and get in your kayak. How easy is it to get out and paddle? EASY as 1, 2, 3!

With the wheeled bag, you can carry or roll it. You can even add our all-terrain wheels and roll over any surface, even up stairs!

Our patented design has been featured and reviewed on TV and many online sites. Here are a bunch.


Gear Junkie: “During my 6+ hour test on a river in Connecticut and on the choppy Long Island Sound, I kept experiencing two opposing disbeliefs: When I saw the kayak all packed up, I couldn’t believe the unit becomes an efficient, floating boat. Conversely, when I was on the water, I couldn’t believe I was paddling in a sectional kayak.”

Outside Mag: “At exactly two feet wide, the Blue Fin is plenty stable through wind-blown chop and the occasional rogue wave. It does not feel tippy, and I felt confident just sitting idle in it. As the morning fog started to clear and the south end of Catalina Island was illuminated by the sun, I was momentarily tempted to see if I could reach it by Pakayak.”

Power & Motor Yacht: “I was thoroughly surprised. Long story short: It was dry as a bone.”


In 2016, we made a splash and have been cruising ever since. We introduced the only hard-shell packable kayak and changed kayaking forever. We have happy Pak Members in over 25 countries all over the world.

    The Pakayak came in the wrong color (Chili instead of Sunshine). I had to return it to a drop-off location, and wait for the correct one to be sent. There was no extended courtesy for the time spent packing and driving to the Fed-Ex location a second time (small % off, complimentary t-shirt, or kayak accessory of some kind) which would have been what I would have done for someone based on a negligent mistake on behalf of the company. I sent the company emails and phone messages which were followed up shortly after by one of the owners on during a weekend which was nice. After receiving the correct color kayak, I took it out to inspect it only to find a small gauge/area of damage about the size of a quarter on the outside of one of the pieces. This to bummed me out. I think it could have been due to excessive rubbing by a buckle on the plastic during the shipment. I just figured I would just have to deal with it, so as not go through once again the process of contacting the company and driving again to return it. I think the inner packaging of the Pakayak could be improved to prevent that from happening. So, I have a slightly imperfect kayak that I will just deal with. Aside from those two issues, I like the kayak itself. Being that it is winter in Illinois, it will be a bit of time before I can test it on the water. I put it together in my living room, and it seems like it will be a pretty solid piece to maneuver.

    • PAKAYAK (store manager)

      Hello Corinne, thank you for the review. We apologize for the shipment of the incorrect color and we didn’t know about the damage during shipping to the second one. We would be happy to offer something for your troubles. Please fill out our warranty form and we’ll get right back to you. We appreciate your suggestions and will look to implement better packaging.
