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 Whitewater Deck is the driest and warmest configuration, and our recommendation for cold climates with significant whitewater. This is also a good choice for any paddler that wants to stay as dry and warm as possible. It utilizes a hard boat style coaming/skirt set-up. This allows you to completely seal the boat, and make a safe wet-exit. If you are wanting to venture into the waves, the whitewater deck is the choice!
New for 2017, the Removable WW Deck features same cockpit as the standard Whitewater Deck but with the increased flexibility of a water resistant perimeter zipper allowing you to convert to an open boat for more relaxing days. The Removable WW Deck is a great choice for anyone seeking more protection than the Cruiser Deck, but wants flexibility for a broader range of paddling conditions. If you are planning to paddle in significant whitewater or get cold easily, the standard Whitewater Deck is a better option. Water can still seep in through the zipper (similar to the Cruiser deck). All models come with the Removable Whitewater Deck, 1-piece coaming, ultralight Sil-Nylon spray skirt, standard seat, and an inflatable backrest. Looking to hit big drops and huge holes? Check out the Gnarwhal or Alpacalypse!
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 our custom foam backband, and two ultralight handles installed on the inside of the tubes for easier carrying and portaging, these might be the best Packrafts yet.
