Their "Folding wheel cart" is one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's basically a folding hand-truck, so it wouldn't be good for voyaging (too heavy and bulky), but it's excellent for moving these heavy doubles, your furniture, small bookcases full of books, etc.-- indispensable for an apartment dweller. Only $29, here, and I've seen the same thing for over $150 in stores. I got mine from Wheeleez 3 or 4 years ago for $40 and, as I said, it's some of the best money I've ever spent. (Just to emphasize: good for getting heavy bags from closet to car and car to water, but you won't want to try to take this thing in the boat!)

They also have a new "Kayak-mini" cart that might be decent. It's allegedly under 7 lbs (3 KG).

Yes, it can be under 7 lbs. This is their new ballon tire, the smallest one, 9"*5". Otherwise, the frame is identical to those by Primex and many other manufacturers with 10"*3" wheels, - probably even larger, as the wheel is 2" thicker. A bit bulky for a single kayak, and wheels are bulky too (compared to 10"*3"). Paddleboy Nemo with 10"*3" wheels folds more compact. I've installed 12"*2" wheels on the Nemo frame, and it is easier to roll now over larger boulders.
