Half the fun of kayaking is scoping out wildlife, yet the typical rig obscures the world below it. Enter the Napali. Its see-through shell allows for underwater viewing. But don’t sweat those hungry sharks circling beneath you: Though it looks fragile, the one-seater is made of military-grade urethane supported by a Kevlar carbon frame – the kind that keeps race cars from crumpling in crashes. When you’re finished exploring, the sea kayak collapses into an easy-tote bundle the size of a suitcase.


And it will only set you back about four grand. :-)
