Over the summer, Oru Kayak announced the Inlet, its smallest, lightest-weight kayak yet. The brand claims that you can assemble the new 20 pound boat in under five minutes (with practice). We tested that with two gear editors to see if it’s actually true. The kayak is available for preorder now and ships in June 2020.
