This week Alpacka Raft, the industry leader in research and development of modern packrafting, announced the launch of its new Caribou packraft, a front-end loading and ultralight packraft that offers a modern take on an original classic. The Caribou is specifically designed for anglers, solo hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts who like to wander deep into backcountry waters on bike or foot.
The Caribou is the lightest and most packable full-size packraft on the market. A new and innovative bow design at the front of the boat means the boat is built to carry bikes, full-sized packs, big game, and other heavy loads, while keeping the boat balanced on and off water. The Caribou weighs in at only four pounds and 12 ounces.
