- PACKRAFT INFLATION -

Alpacka Raft's use a simple, lightweight "inflation bag" to avoid requiring a heavy or bulky traditional pump. The process is easy to master with a little practice, making efficient inflation in the field a breeze.

Alpacka Raft evolved their packraft's valve design in 2017 and the below video illustrates the process for inflation on the new valves, although the process is very much the same for pre 2017 Alpacka Raft's.

- CARGOFLY ZIP CARE -

Alpacka Raft were the original innovators for integrating an optional airtight/watertight zip and internal gear storage into their rafts. This feature adds great versatility to their packraft range, but does require routine care and maintenance to ensure prolong usability and functionality. The below video outlines some methods for zipper upkeep and maintenance.
