The Scout

So small and light that you won’t even notice it in your pack. Alpacka have cut 450g off the original Scout by using new fabrics that shave weight while maintaining high durability. They've also added the option of a lightweight seat that makes for a much more comfortable paddling position. The Scout features 10-inch diameter tubes and no bells and whistles to keep the weight and bulk to the absolute minimum. Its everything you need for fastpacking, canyoneering, river crossings, mountain lake fishing or bringing along on your adventure touring motorcycle journey to access hidden waterholes.

Optional seat adds a tiny 150grams to total boat weight, but a world of paddling comfort.

Fabric

For the Scout, Alpacka Raft optimized weight savings and packability while maintaining sufficient tear strengths for the Scout’s intended uses.  The Scout tube fabric is the same 210-denier High Count Nylon base fabric to Alpacka's standard tube fabrics, but with a lighter polyurethane coating to reduce weight. The Scout packraft floor is a 420-denier weight version of Alpacka's 840-denier standard floor, which significantly reduces the weight and bulk of the overall boat when rolled up.
