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. The Explorer 42 is our smallest and lightest multi-person packraft and is ideal for fast and light adventures for two, the solo paddler with a dog or extra gear, or a parent wanting to introduce a child to water sports. The Gnu is the packrafter’s canoe and is a versatile platform for two paddlers who want to do everything from classic lake paddling to advanced whitewater. The Forager is our largest and burliest packraft and is built to take on any kind of backcountry adventure from fly in trips to the Brooks Range, to moose hunting in the Yukon, to self support Grand Canyon expeditions. 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.
