The first Alpacka Whitewater Packraft has launched! Pre-order yours now.
And right on the heels of that is the BAKraft from AIRE. It’s a self-bailing, whitewater-worthy, Dyneema shell and urethane bladders construction that weighs 6.5 pounds that costs around $1,200. It looks very nice and is a slight departure from traditional packraft designs. [Hat tip to Forrest]
