Fortunately, no, we are not exiting the kayak business! However, due to unprecedented sales and inventory constraints, our availability of in-stock items is incredibly limited at this time. Our buying teams are working hard with our vendors to secure any inventory they can, however, we will likely not see orders fulfilling until the fall at the earliest. If you are looking to purchase a touring kayak from REI, your best bet is to keep your eye on our website to see when they land later this year.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.
