The Folbot Sporting Life is great for backwater fly fishers and hunters.

Folbot has been known as the providers of lightweight and durable, foldable kayaks. Their new “Sporting Life” line of kayaks cater to the hunting and fishing sportsmen. The new models feature outriggers and come with a Realtree Max-4 camouflage skin that is UV, water and mildew resistant. It is based on Folbot’s “Edisto” kayak.

This kayak is perfect for the people who are looking for super stability from outriggers without the massive weight that slows the usual suspects down. Folbots will also come in handy for the backwoods camping trips where you need to pack in first. The Realtree Max-4 Camo will be a hit for anyone who likes real camouflage on their boats, especially the anglers that also hunt.

The following is from a press release detailing the launch of the “Sporting Life” models:

“Folbot president Eric Thome adds, “We are thrilled to add the ‘Sporting Life’ model with RealTree Max-4 Camo to our portfolio of Folbot sporting kayaks.  Now hunters and anglers can maneuver backwoods with ease and without the hassle of carrying a heavy boat.”

Pre-order the “Sporting Life” Folbot foldable kayak model now for $2,450 and get the included outrigger pontoons for super stability, camouflage backpack duffle and mini deck, sit-on-top seat, floorboard deck, anchor, and Realtree Max- 4 camo skin for extra coverage and protection.”
