Taking the best from canoes and kayaks, the NEXT may be the ultimate solo tripping boat. The 13-foot-long hybrid combines the solo paddling performance of a sea kayak with the load carrying and confidence-inspiring open design of a canoe. Load it with up to 450 pounds of gear, cover impressive distances and portage with ease (it weighs just 50 pounds). Paddle confidently, knowing the three-layer poly construction can take a beating. No matter where you go the Element Seat creates a comfortable cockpit, with six inches of fore-and-aft adjustment and movable foot braces. The bright colors evoke the boat’s unique personality. ($999)
