When packing for a trip, do you ever think “But what if I spontaneously want to go kayaking?” This is for you. The folks at Vagabondish give a first look at the Citibot, a kayak that weighs 24 pounds, is full-size, and folds small enough to check on an airplane. Seriously.

This video claims that the Citbot can be assembled in 12.5 minutes, but even if it takes a little longer, that doesn't change the fact that it folds down small enough to carry on your back.
