One of the main points in kayaking or any other outdoor activity is the simplicity and difference of the life in outdoors compared to the modern lifestyle we have used to. Travelling, cooking and accommodation are all slightly different when it’s done somewhere in a remote area out of everyday luxuries.

Product that has been designed for this kind of use has also changed. Back in old days most of kayak components was made out of metal. Those parts where generally quite clumsy and heavy. Nowadays all respected kayak manufacturers are trying to reach the best possible level and balance of functionality, weight, durability, serviceability and cost of the product, depending if the kayak is used in casual day touring, demanding expeditions or rough sea conditions.
