Folbot Kiawah 133 Folding Kayak -

Destined for placid scenery and great memories, the Folbot Kiawah 133 folding kayak is designed for quick assembly and lazy afternoons on the water.

Made in USA.


  • Urethane-coated polyester protects the decks; all outer materials on the Kiawah resist UV light and are designed to take a beating without puncturing
  • Used by roofers, the military and whitewater-raft makers, a synthetic rubber material called Elvaloy is tough like a rhino's hide and protects the hull of the Kiawah


  • What’s included? Your kayak will come inside its backpack with skin, frame, 2 foot braces, 2 air sponsons, 2 safety bladders, and inflatable seat
  • Thanks to a clever tensioning device in the rear of the kayak, you can first assemble the frame and then insert it into the skin, streamlining the set-up process
  • Frame of the Kiawah is just as sturdy as its skin, with stainless-steel keel brackets (say that 3 times fast), aircraft-grade tubing and anodized aluminum cross pieces
  • Inflatable chambers called sponsons run the full length of the boat to increase tension and lock frame pieces into place; sponsons also flare out the hull to enhance stability


  • Easy-to-open zippers with high-strength zipper heads offer access to interior of kayak; rip-and-stick stormflaps and water-resistant closures keep things sealed up tight


  • Seat and footpegs adjust to create a comfortable position in the cockpit


  • Maybe you can't store a hard-shell at home, or maybe you want the best paddling experience possible on an upcoming destination trip; either way, you'll want a Folbot
  • The Kiawah 133 is the smaller cousin of the Cooper, suited to paddlers weighing 130 - 180 lbs.
  • It sets up in about 20 min., and folds up into a pack that you can store in your car's trunk or your gear closet
  • Solid aluminum strip protects the bow and stern keels
  • Perfect for day trips, the stable hull tracks well and cuts through flatwater and gentle currents with ease

Folbot Kiawah 133 Folding Kayak Review:


Kiawah Kayak

Kayak was easy to put together, and looks sharp. It is definately slower than my hard-sided kayaks, but still tracks decent and will be great for traveling. I dont think i will have any problem checking it on an airline. I did not give it 5 stars because it arrived with some small nicks in the hull. Not enough to bother with sending back, just a small annoyance. I wish REI carried other colors, as Folbot offers many. But with the 20% off coupon, you couldnt beat the price! I am 5'2- if I were a little taller, I would probably be more comfortable in the Cooper- especially if I were to do some overnight trips that lasted more than a few days.
