Combining light and durable tubes with a full strength 840d Ballistic Nylon Floor and Alpacka Raft's innovative Late Rise Bow, the Caribou is the ultimate backcountry front end loader. At just 4lbs 12oz (5lbs with a Cargo Fly), the Caribou is also the lightest full sized packraft on the market. It’s the perfect packraft for bikerafting and big ultralight backcountry adventures. Alpacka Raft designed the Caribou with the Late Rise Bow, that combines the stability and load carrying ability of a rockerless hull with the whitewater and wave performance of a rockered hull. Unlike anything else on the market, the Late Rise Bow still provides a rocker to shed waves and whitewater, but it moves the beginning of the rocker in front of the bow’s mounted load. The result is a broad stable platform for mounting bulky and heavy items like bicycles that carries them high and keeps them out of the water when paddling. And, the load remains balanced and stable on both water and land.
Utilizes the same lightweight 210-denier high count nylon fabric as the Scout and the 840-denier floor featured in Alpacka Raft's other packrafts.
Full-size bikeraft or ultralight hunting raft that rolls up small for stashing in a pack or on your handlebar roll.
Cargo Fly keeps bulky gear on the bow and loose gear inside and dry.
Note: Due to the specialized bags utilized by most bike-packers, Cargo Fly models do not include internal dry bags or internal attachments for clipping dry bags in place. However, internal dry bags can be purchased separately and used in the Caribou without the internal attachments.
The Caribou Self Bailer with a cargo fly is perfect for warmer conditions, quick entry and exit, and anyone that prefers a self bailing setup. No dumping water is required and includes a cargo fly.
