The Alpacka Series continues the tradition of our original line-up of the Alpaca, Yak, Llama, and Mule. For over 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. Its also the most customizable packraft available with four sizes, six fabric/color options, and five different build configurations to choose from, and all with the option of adding our innovative Cargo Fly internal gear storage system.
For the latest model, we kept our classic design but added a few tweaks to make it better than ever. We added 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. We also updated the Whitewater Spray Deck with a larger cockpit and deeper 1-piece coaming that matches our Whitewater Series packrafts and provides a more secure Velcro-free interface with the spray skirt. We’ve also added a removable Whitewater Spray Deck that has the same cockpit configuration as the standard Whitewater Deck but can be removed from the boat for flatwater days via a zipper like the Cruiser Deck.
Looking for thigh straps? We are not offering thigh straps as a factory option on the Alpacka Raft series and the attachment points are no longer included on the Self Bailer configuration, but we’ve still got you covered with the all new Gnarwhal in our Whitewater Series which is available in Self Bailer, Whitewater Deck, and Removable Whitewater Deck Configurations – all with thigh straps factory installed.
Have an older model Alpacka Raft you’d like thigh straps in? We are now offering our patent pending 4-point thigh straps as kit that you can install yourself with a quality polyurethane glue.
