Dreams do come true! Far more than adding thigh straps to our standard packrafts, the Gnarwhal is an evolutionary leap in packrafting performance.
The heart of the Gnarwhal is our exclusive patented 12-inch high-volume stern and hull design that maximizes stability, predictability, and foregiveness in challenging whitewater. No other packraft comes close when taking on steep creeks, fast glacial rivers, or Grand Canyon sized waves, boils, and eddy lines.
The Gnarwhal cockpit comes standard with our custom foam backband mounted to lightweight stainless d-rings, our patented 4-point thigh strap system, and our whitewater seating system with a 3/4-length inflatable seat and an inflatable footrest, all of which add up to a combat rollable boat with extraordinary comfort. Our Cargo Fly system also comes standard on the Gnarwhal, and the high-volume hull allows you to carry more gear than ever before without compromising balance.
The Gnarwhal is available in Self Bailing, Whitewater Deck, and Removable Whitewater Deck configurations. (See the other tabs for additional details and recommendations). It’s also available in Vectran®!
