I have a waterstrider/Abel Travel Craft and I can't imagine that its much more packable or lighter than the commander.
based on the box my commander came in, and the 35 lb weight, i dont think there is a better option for flying and shipping a good boat. it folds up smaller then a watermaster in its carry bag for sure.Randy,
I already have a Commander which I really like, but I’d prefer something lighter and more packable.
Storage space is a bit tight as well where I intend to ship it to and possibly leave there.
I’ll continue to use the Commander for local work.

i dont have a bag for it, but i was AMAZED at how SMALL the box was that it shipped in. Like, actually amazaed. And yes, i have the gray/orange model with the more modern rounded ends (the newest version). 32lbs total weight. Im sure you could fit it into a dry bag or something.@Dustin Bise
Do you have the newer version of the Commander, gray colored without the pointed ends?
If so, if you get a chance please post picture of it in its carry bag if it is convenient to do so.
I bought mine used (older model) so I don’t have a bag. I’d just like to see how the oars fit in the bag and the overall size when the boat is in its bag.
Maybe buying a bag from Outcast might be an option.
Thanks for your input.
