Alpacka Raft Cruiser Decked

The Alpacka Series continues the tradition of the original line-up of the Alpaca, Yak, Llama, and Mule. For 17 years running, they have been the unquestioned leader of packrafting innovation, performance, and quality. From a day at your local river, to epic traverses across the most remote locations on the planet, to self-supported Grand Canyon trips, the Alpacka Series is time tested and proven as the highest performance, most trusted, and most reliable packraft on earth.

The Cruiser Deck uses a removable deck which is great for expedition use on a variety of rivers. Keep it on and stay dry through flat to splashy waters. The Cruiser Deck attaches along the left boat tube and up the left side of the torso with Velcro, which easily comes apart in the event of a wet-exit. An inflatable pillow sheds water and keeps it from pooling in your lap. Zip it off to go ultra-light, pack in more gear, or just catch a breeze on a sunny day! Choose the Cargo Fly and have a boat that will want to be out longer than you. If you go much bigger than Class 2+, water can get in through the zipper and velcro. If this is you, consider the WW Deck (or a Gnarwhal!)

For 2017, the classic design remains but with a few tweaks to make it better than ever. With the addition of a new one-way valve that offers high pressure inflation and easy deflation with a quick turn of the valve core, two lightweight welded stainless D-rings for installing custom foam backbands, and two ultralight handles installed on the inside of the tubes for easier carrying and portaging, these might be the best Packrafts yet.
