New Packraft

Postby oldranger » Mon Apr 07, 2014 7:00 am

My new Supai pack raft arrived last week. Total weight, including stuff sack and repair patches = 25 oz--8 oz less than my Klymit LWD. Clearly not as much volume in the tube so probably not suitable for anyone over 200 lbs. despite its rating.

Cool. :thumbsup:

I picked up a used FlytePacker packraft by Fly Weight Designs 2 years ago. I've only had it out on 2 backpacking trips, but use it quite a bit for fun around the lake with the kid. I've also floated down the lower American River (Sunrise>Arden) in it and had a blast. I have tried fishing from it and while it works, it's not exactly a graceful sight.

What are you using for paddles?
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.
