TubeTracker Pro packraft

only 5’ long! double layer construction: 30 gage PVC bladders (with inflatable floor, seat, and backrest), 1,000 denier polyester tarpaulin bottom, 840 denier nylon top cover. only $110. about as durable as an Alpackaraft, but heavier no doubt. I saw some people floating down a mild whitewater stretch in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho the other day. They seemed to really enjoy it.

given its short length, durability, and affordable replacement, this might just be the boat I would use for manky low volume creek exploration, and save my next Alpacka for the larger rivers.
