We get it. Whether it's packs, shoes, or sleeping bags, if you are big and tall, finding high performance outdoor gear is hard. So Alpacka makes it easy with the Mule, a spacious and super stable backcountry packraft that will comfortably carry a 250+ pound paddler and 100 pounds of gear without feeling bogged down.
