Ultralight Series - Scout
So small and light that you won’t even notice it in your pack. The Scout features a new hull shape with additional volume in the bow and stern, which allows the Scout to be used as a full-fledged backcountry packraft in addition to its regular duties as a canyoneering and mountain lake specialist. The Scout will be offered with a short Cargo Fly for the first time ever. The Cargo Fly version will be perfect for backcountry trips where weight is at a premium, but you need a boat that can handle a couple of days of paddling with all of your gear.
Open: The Scout is available only in the open build configuration. We are not offering spray decks or self bailing configurations for the Scout as it is primarily designed as a minimalist boat.
Cargo Fly Zipper: The Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution featuring an airtight zipper installed in the stern of the boat to allow you to load your gear inside the tubes. The system provides drier and more secure gear storage and improved paddling performance due to a lower center of gravity. The Scout Cargo Fly zippers is shorter than our standard Cargo Fly zippers, but still adequate to fit most medium sized stuff sacks and small (non-frame) backpacks). The Scout’s extra small tubes are not compatible with our internal dry bags.
Hull: Proprietary 210-denier high count nylon, single side laminated with a lightweight pigmented polyurethane film (Made in USA). This is the same fabric used in the Caribou, which optimizes packability and weight savings while maintaining sufficient tear strength for the Scout’s intended uses.
Floor: Proprietary 420-denier nylon, laminated on both sides with polyurethane film (Made in USA).
Seat: 200-denier oxford nylon, with single side polyurethane laminate (Made in USA).
Accessories: All grab loops and similar attachments are manufactured in house in Mancos, Colorado out of scrap floor materials and USA made webbing. Small parts and fasteners are Made in USA, when available, and sourced from industry leaders like Duraflex, YKK, and ITW-Nexus.
