Who is Jane ?

Technical specifications

Our packrafts are handcrafted in our workshop, based in the south of France, between the Drôme river and the Vercors mountains.

CONSTRUCTION
We don't use a drop of glue to stick our boats together: each piece of fabric is completely welded to the rest using high frequency welding, a technology capable of giving the best results in terms of strength and durability. Each weld is actually stronger than the fabric itself.

MATERIALS
In the Classic version, Jane's sidewalls are made of 210 denier high tenacity nylon with a double coat of TPU. The floor is 840 denier nylon with a double TPU coating, which is extremely resistant to abrasion.

In the Armor version, Jane is built with 420 denier high tenacity nylon with double TPU coating sidewalls. The floor is 840 denier nylon, also with an abrasive resistant double TPU coat.

Our packrafts are fitted with D7 Leafield valves, the most robust and durable valve around. The D7 therefore has a lifetime warranty.

We use Superseal Tizip's™ for the optional internal storage system as well as stainless steel buckles for the tie downs. Our cushions come with one way, low profile, valves that have a quick deflation tab.

INTERNAL STORAGE (OPTION)
Planning on going for multi day expeditions and need to carry a lot of gear and supplies? Go for the internal storage system and you will be able to store extra kit inside the boat.

HOW TO CHOOSE MY PACKRAFT ?

We build your packrafts to your design and therefore have limited stock. Our lead time can vary from one to five months but is subjected to the volume of orders. If you would like to find out the exact delay, please give us a call. In any case, if you have a trip or expedition coming up with a cut-off date, it’s best to order as early as possible!

This one is simple: evacuation holes are placed in the bottom of the packraft to let water out. Because some water will always remain in the bottom, a slightly thicker, and boat-long inflatable seat is added to keep your body high and dry.

Self bailers are great for paddlers wanting to paddle some cool white water. If a wave enters your raft, it’s not a problem: it will simply drain out through the bottom as if nothing had happened. They are good for when continual scouting makes a deck and spray skirt combination cumbersome.

Please note our self-bailer is only available in the Standard size. This is because is is designed for a tight fit to improve control through the thigh straps. Also, too much weight would make it sit too deep in the water. This model is therefore not recommended for people over 1m90 and/or 100 kilos.

You can choose from our available colours:
– Red & Black
– Orange & Black (Armor fabric, 125€ extra)

It is also possible to completely customise the look of your boat, by adding a 50€ surcharge. Until our e-shop is modified, please state your desired colours in the comments when you order.

The internal storage system consists of an airproof zipper (Superseal by Tizip) that is welded to the back of your packraft. By opening the zip you have access to the inside of the boat and can store you gear (tent, sleeping bags, backpack…) safely. Think about it like turning your packraft into a giant dry-bag. You have over 150L to store your gear. More than enough space for even those that can’t leave home without the kitchen sink. Zip it up and you are off!

The internal storage system is extremely practical for those who go on an expedition over several days or weeks and need to bring a large quantity of equipment and provisions. It is also of great interest during bike-rafting outings where the front of the packraft is already occupied by your bike. During day trips, it is not so essential, but simplifies life.

Please remember that the Tizip needs to be treated delicately and cleaned regularly. Because of this is is excluded from our warranty, like other manufacturers. If you zip is damaged or dirty it will leak slightly. In conclusion, if you are not someone who is not very careful with their equipment, maybe you should think carefully about adding this option.
