How to choose my packraft?

We build your packrafts to your design and therefore have limited stock. Our lead time is around six months but is subjected to the volume of orders at a particular time. If you would like to find out the exact delay, please give us a call so we can let you know. 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.

Les coloris disponibles actuellement sont les suivants :
– Jaune & Noir ou Jaune & Gris
– Rouge & Noir ou Rouge & Gris
– Orange & Noir ou Orange & Gris
– Gris & Noir
– Camouflage ou Camouflage & Noir (supplément de 50€)

Il est aussi possible de customiser votre packraft en choisissant la couleur de chaque tube. La customisation coûte alors 50€. La e-boutique ne permet pas encore de sélectionner la ou les couleurs souhaitée.s, on vous invite donc à nous indiquer votre choix lors de la commande.

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. A single seater has around 250 L of volume, a double seater around 350 L. 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 useful for those that need that extra space during long expeditions, where it is important to carry everything on a self sustained trip. It can also be great if you can't be bothered to tie your bag to the cargo rings on the front. Just zip everything up and you are off.

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.

Le pontage est une pièce de tissu qui recouvre la partie supérieure du bateau. Cette pièce est munie d’un trou généralement ovaloïde qu’on appelle l’hiloire, dans lequel vous viendrez vous glisser. L’hiloire est rigidifié à l’aide d’un tuyau plastique amovible, autour duquel vous pourrez installer une jupe, elle aussi amovible (fournie avec le pontage). Lorsque la jupe est installée, vous êtes complètement au sec.

Si vous vous retournez, il vous suffit de tirer sur une petite poignée située à l’avant de la jupe afin que celle-ci saute et vous permette de sortir du packraft en quelques secondes.

Decked packrafts are the most versatile option because you can paddle both flat and white water. The deck keeps your lower body warm and means you can use the packraft in colder conditions. If, as a beginner, you are doubting about which raft you should choose, this one is probably the one for you as it gives the wides scope of use.

A removable deck is very similar to a classic spray deck, but you can remove it by unzipping from the main body of the packraft.

Advantages ? This means you can choose between and open or decked boat depending on the adventure! Please be aware that some water can get in the packraft through the zipper, so that the removable spray-deck is not as waterproof as the fixed one.

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 looking to do some cool white water. If a wave covers your raft, no problem: it will simply drain out through the bottom as nothing had happened. They are good for when continual scouting makes a deck and spray skirt combination cumbersome.
