The Cargo Series delivers ultimate versatility and gear capacity in a lightweight and easy to carry package. Over the last decade, our Cargo Series packrafts have won multiple international adventure races, traversed the Greenland ice cap, ferried climbers into frozen Baffin Island fjords, guided fishermen to trophy Kamchatka rainbows and New Zealand browns, and helped hunters pack out moose and sheep from the Alaskan bush.  For 2017, we’ve completely redesigned the Gnu and Explorer 42 and added the all new Forager, the largest and burliest packraft we’ve ever built. Whatever your next adventure, the Cargo Series is ready for action.

*Gear Capacity is a general estimate of the useful carrying load of gear in a cargo fly equipped boat with two average sized adults.  The gear capacity will increase or decrease depending on water conditions and paddler experience and capability. It is the paddler’s responsibility to make an informed decision on gear weight based on conditions and their experience.

**Base weight is for the open Gnu with the C2 seat and without a cargo fly.
