The Origami comes apart in three parts but carrying them with this shoulder strap makes it easy to tote it all together.
The Origami shoulder strap is adjustable and ties on to the Origami Paddler. Maximum length is 60 inches.
Each Origami Paddler comes with a shoulder strap, but if you want an extra, here it is!
Shoulder strap. I have not had the pleasure of taking my OP to the water yet… the weather is getting warmer, any day now. However , I have tried to carry my OP via shoulder strap.. it is uncomfortable and difficult!! I personally will be using a small luggage carrier to transport my OP…
This is such a fun addition to my water play!
We tried out our paddlers and were pleasantly surprised how comfortable they are. No need for a seat in the kayak position. Easy to transition to standing or kneeling. It is heavier than I expected. No way I can carry it myself! I need to order the wheel cart.
Though their arrival was long delayed, my paddlers were beautifully packaged. They look great, but I’m in Maine and awaiting the warmer weather before I try to use them.
This is my first kayak and I'm so excited to try it out! Snow is gone and water is starting to warm up. I plan on having comfortable temps for my maiden voyage. Every time I contacted with customer service, they were awesome. It was hard to wait when I saw others enjoying thier Paddlers, but I knew going it Tim and the team had many steps left till I would get mine. Thank you Origami Paddler! This summer I will have my butt in a boat!!
Waiting for higher temps and less wind in Sequim!
Finally opened the box and assembled the Origami. First inspection showed everything was in order. Only had to adjust one hinge on the bow section. Once that was done the parts slipped together nicely. Looks good. Open water will be next.
And I was excited to receive my origami paddler. I got it all put together except for the carrying strap. I also purchased the cart which I think really makes a big difference in moving it around and less you like carrying a 45 pound paddle board down to a water on uneven ground. Highly recommend the cart. I’m used to a large sit on top kayak so it was like going from a pick up truck to a sports car.
Was very excite it finally arrived. Thank you.
Had mine for a few weeks, went easy on first two times out on the water however yesterday, I went all out and spent over 7 hours going around Key Biscayne, which I admit was a little longer than I intended but the Paddler performed perfectly. Make sure to push those plugs hard to minimize water intrusion into the shells.
My OrigamiPaddlers arrived securely packaged. Unrelated to packaging, one paddler had a hinge alignment issue that was remedied promptly after I alerted you guys. Thanks a ton. Awesome boats.
We purchased 2 paddlers in March 2021 on pre-order. I came across them online and when I ordered, didn’t realize it was a kickstarter! We followed their story over the past year and were so excited to receive them this March. They are very accessible and great for making the most of our short summers and getting out on the water. We are “fair weather” paddlers so they are perfect for our family. I love that my 7yo can use it on her own or ride with us as a passenger. The colours are great!
Finally got to take her out for the 1st time yesterday and it was awesome. Out of my car and in the water in less than 5 minutes!!!
As an older woman and short I can't get my other kayak on my roof rack alone so the only time I could go paddling was when someone else could go to help me. With my Origami Paddler I am completely independent! And love that. It was fun, easy and very stable for both kayaking and SUP. Folks at the lake that saw it kept marveling over the design and versatility of it. It was hit all around and I am so glad to have one!!
I absolutely love Origami Paddler. It is easy to transform and compact enough to fit in the back of my small SUV . Very sturdy and stable. Highly recommended
haven't had a chance to use my board yet Still to cold in mountain lakes. But loved the ease of putting it together, Can' t wait for it to warm up.
I love this kayak/SUP! I appreciate the versatility of it and the ease of use. Initially I had to loosen the hinges with included screw driver to get the pins all of the way in, but that was very easy to do. It was easy to put together and is durable. I would highly recommend this kayak/SUP to anyone. It is heavy to move, so wheels under it would be helpful if you are going any distance on land.
