Origami design creates a portable canoe

Swatches | January 1, 2022 | By:

The designers that launched MyCanoe nearly five years ago have been through several iterations of their packable canoe. The company’s most recent product is a lightweight, durable, foldable canoe, inspired by origami, that packs in a portable case, assembles in less than five minutes and fits in the back of most vehicles. The body of MyCanoe is made from a marine-grade custom polypropylene with a 15-year UV treatment that will withstand 20,000 folds. Smaller models start at only 28 pounds (13 kg) and larger models have a load capacity of up to 480 pounds (218 kg). The watercraft is TUV safety certified and on the unlikely chance that it capsizes, the canoe stays afloat, just like more traditionally constructed canoes. Photo: MyCanoe.
