Most skin-on-frame folders use two or more sponsons that tension the skin and lend an additional degree of integrity to the hull and if, for some reason, the sponsons are deflated the boat will still be paddleable. Sort of (I tried this one time with my Kurrent). On the other hand, all inflatables, including those with internal stiffening members, once deflated become nothing more than flotsam. But Yellowboat is right about the Oru; it's the only really true 100% folder. A boat for the folding kayak purist who can get along with chloroplast. :D

Shame Atlatl are no longer with us. As I understand it we should all be thankful that Foldlite are no more though :shock:

I was very careful to describe my experiences in that review without making any subjective judgments. Now that they're out of business and I don't have to worry about getting sued, I can safely say that the word "deathtrap" would be an understatement in describing that boat.
