Think of the weight, cost and storability! No pumping, no punctures, just leave it in the closet for months and months, then BANG spur of the moment "let's paddle False creek!". It'll be great, with selfies to prove it!

That's who the Oru is meant for.

Thanks everyone! I am newbie to the water sports. I am extremely grateful with all your suggestions. now I am thinking to only use Oru Kayaka for hiking & fishing trips, a 26 lbs folding kayak is not bad for carrying to Chedsay Lake/Pierce Lake/Garibaldi Lake and then fishing there.

That's where a 5 lb packraft would let you carry 20 lb more beer in and 20 lb more fish out!

Mind you, if any sort of a serious portage is involved the weight and size of the Oru becomes extremely attractive.

Having packed my 47lb inflatable to Garibaldi a few times now, the Oru has some appeal. That's boat only, add everything else needed and it's pushing 70 lbs total, but I end up with a very nice craft I can roam the lake at will in, feeling safe away from shore in any conditions. Packrafts have their place for sure, but a lake as big, cold and magnificent as Garibaldi deserves more than a packraft. The Oru would be very suitable.

Murtle lake is worth checking, BTW, especially if you like fish for dinner.
