California-based Advanced Elements introduced the world’s first truly hybrid inflatable kayak that increased boat performance and portability over a decade ago. The popular AdvancedFrame kayak is a hybrid of a folding frame and inflatable kayak with built-in aluminum ribs in the bow and stern that tracks as well as many hard-shell kayaks. This popular day-touring kayak is 10’5” long, weights 36 lbs., has a 300 lb. paddler and gear carrying capacity, comes with plenty of on-board storage, and sets up in minutes. Come check out one of these boats at the Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival and get a chance to win one of them at the Great Gear Giveaway Saturday, July 7 at Camp Sekani Park in Spokane. MSRP: $539.99. Advancedelements.com. //
