Save your shoulders and roll your boat to the water instead.
- Oversized alloy tubing makes this cart highly durable and strong-as-nails
- Hypalon tension strap keeps the folding frame together without adding weight
- A small kickstand allows this cart to stand upright so you can easily move a boat onto it without needing a second person to secure the cart
- Tough webbing retainer strap uses a die cast buckle to secure your kayak to the cart

Simple kayak cart
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This cart is great for carting your canoe/kayak to and from your car. Easy to set up, kick stand def helps getting your boat in place. I have taken the cart over sand and large gravel fields and it has done exactly what it needed to do. The only thing I dont like is the strap to secure your boat is very long. My kayak is pretty slim and there is tons of excess rope. I agree with the other comments saying this cart may not be good for expeditions. Its kinda heavy and doesnt fold up to well.
Not tough enough for expeditions
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This cart isn't built to last on an extended expedition. Straps holding the cart together began to break within a week of use. First the kick-stand, then the one holding the frame together. Within a month, half the straps were replacements or fixes. The foam pads slid and broke off as well. They are not durable. Finally, one tire completely blew out and the other developed a leak. It does not work on uneven terrain and the tires do not fit snugly on the frame which causes friction and bad wear and tear over time.
I'm giving it two stars because I think this cart works fine for short, 100 foot portages from a car to the water as long as the path is smooth, you rarely use it, and if it breaks you are not completely screwed, but as an important piece in a longer trip, as a piece you want to rely on when you are in the middle of nowhere trying to move a boat between two lakes, it's just not built to last. It is an expensive piece of equipment and should handle more than it does.
