The Advanced Elements PackLite is a great choice for high portability. It's ultra-lightweight, surprisingly rugged and compact, with a set-up time of five minutes. The PackLite inflatable kayak is simple to carry, easy to get into and - when on the water - the carrying case doubles as a deck bag with mesh pocket.

It's perfect for backpackers interested in remote lakes, seniors looking for simple paddling options, those with limited space, or for travel. A great choice for camping or vacations as the small carrying case takes minimal space. The Packlite inflatable kayak is good for calm water, slow moving rivers and sloughs.

  • The Packlite: The Fantastic Four-Poounder

    by Lee Johnson – 7th Jan 2018

    The ultimate in portable inflatable kayaks is an ingenious design from Advanced Elements. I first tried my PackLite kayak in California on Clear Lake in windy weather. Now, this kayak weighs only four pounds and is made out of a thin material. I wondered how sturdy it would be. So, I paddled it at a good pace right onto a cement ramp full of pine needles and little rocks. I did this several times, trying to abrade the hull and tear the fabric. Incredibly, it held up without a scratch! It is a rugged little unit and yet will support 250 lbs., just like Advanced Elements Firefly kayak, which is also 7' 10" long. The only caution is not to overinflate the PackLite to prevent tearing a seam. Inflate it until its chambers still will take a depression from your finger. Then, it is ready for those otherwise inaccessible wilderness lakes and streams, its mere four pounds making it perfect for your backpack. Kudos to Advanced Elements for coming up with this "impossible" watercraft that tracks reasonably well, holds a lot of weight, and has almost no weight of its own! Treat it well, and it will do the same for the adventurous paddler. I have used mine for several years now, and it is still like new. Top marks!
