If you’ve never paddled into whitewater, book yourself an adventure with one of the many white water rafting companies out there. The thrill of tackling waves while bobbing and weaving through rocks is the ultimate high for adrenaline junkies. Let’s not forget waterfall drops! Well, getting to and from the river has always been rather cumbersome with large, heavy rafts needing to be brought it. The Alpackalypse Raft solves that problem.
At only 10-lbs, the Alpakalypse Raft packs down to 17″ x 11″, making it almost as small to carry as your tent. It uses smaller tubes than standard packrafts, which allows for increased internal room for the paddler, as well as as more defined side edge for the boat. This makes it quicker to accelerate and easier to maneuver. A new foot brace was also added for additional control, as well as a heavy-duty seat, knee cups, back-band and inflatable hip pads.
The raft is made out of super tough 400 denier Vectran fabric for increased stiffness and durability, creating an incredibly responsible and capable inflatable craft. A Cargo-Fly system comes standard allowing your gear to stow inside the tubes, lowering your center of gravity and leaving your bow free of gear, essential for running technical whitewater.
The Alpackalypse Raft is priced right at $1,900. With over 6 years of testing, the raft has been through it all to make sure your money is well spent. Buy here.
