Paddling Suits

Paddling Suits

Alpacka Raft paddling suits are the lightest, most packable, high performance paddling suits on the market. When you are carrying all of your equipment in a pack, minimizing weight and bulk is critical. A full immersion drysuit is fantastic for staying warm and dry, but most weigh 4 pounds or more and take up as much room as a good sized sleeping bag. To meet the unique needs of packrafters, we combined design concepts from the paddling world, like sealed gaskets, with lightweight breathable fabrics from the hiking world. We ended up with ultralight, packable, hiking and boating friendly suits. The Trekker is the perfect all purpose packrafting suit and is as comfortable on in the boat as it is on the trail. The Stowaway Tough is our driest and warmest paddling suit featuring proper sealed neck, wrist, and ankle gaskets, heavy duty lowers and lightweight uppers, perfect for whitewater. The Stowaway is the lightest full featured paddling suit ever and features lightweight fabric throughout with sealed wrist and ankle gaskets and a comfortable splash resistant neoprene neck cuff.

All of our paddling suits feature our unique Split-Zip design with a waterproof Ti-Zip zipper encircling the waist, which makes the suits easy to get on and off, exchange layers, hike with the top off, and bathroom breaks. All of our paddling suits are manufactured in the USA to our specifications by Kokatat.
