Outside Magazine features Martini

Outside Magazine (US edition), one of the worlds leading Outdoor publications, has featured the Point 65 Martini in its April issue "Covet" section!!!
You can read the full story here:

The kayak received lot's of praize. Here is what they wrote:

"Portable kayaks are nothing new, but until now they've been expensive, a hassle to assemble, or both. That's why Point 65's Martini is so brilliant. Release a few buckles and presto: this 13-foot-8-inch tandem separates into three interlocking pieces that fit nicely in the back of an SUV or an apartment-building elevator.

Paddling solo? Leave out the middle section to form a sporty 9-foot-4-inch single. Best of all, it's actually a good boat—stable when launching and landing, nimble on the water, and ready to swallow a weekend's worth of gear. It's also a heck of a lot tougher than traditional frame-and-PVC folding expedition craft. Our only question: Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?"
