Way back in 2000, after suffering through endless tears and repairs of our cheap “pool toy” quality boats, we had a dream of making a true wilderness worthy packraft—a boat that was light enough to fit in a backpack yet would not let you down in the cold, rocky rivers of the Alaskan Arctic. Thus, the original Alpacka Raft was born and a new era of packrafting began. Little did we know packrafts would not only change backcountry travel, but also deliver a fun and easy new way to enjoy your local rivers and lakes. As packrafting has evolved, so has our original line-up of the Alpacka, Yak, and Llama. We decided to return to our roots with the Classic, a simple, elegant packraft with options to fit every budget.

The Classic keeps it simple with our adventure tested Classic Hull, a no fuss seating system, minimalist attachments, and bombproof materials and construction. Configure it exactly to your liking with Open, Cruiser Deck, Whitewater Deck, Removeable Whitewater Deck, and Self Bailing options. You can also add our innovative Cargo Fly zipper internal storage system with or without internal dry bags. Feeling the need for additional tie downs? You can add factory installed grab loops, strap plates, D-Rings, and handles or check out our high-performance Expedition models, which include double D-Rings and handles standard.

â–ºHow to Choose Your Boat Size

The chart below shows our recommended size based on your sit length and the Classic’s fit profile. To determine your sit length, sit against a wall with your legs flat (wearing your preferred paddling shoes) and measure the distance from the wall to your heels. The Classic is sized for a relaxed fit, meaning that a typical paddler in the recommended size can fully extend their legs and not touch the bow unless they point their toes when sitting in the boat. You can size up or down for a more performance or relaxed fit.

*Weight includes all components except inflation bag, repair kit, and internal dry bags for Cargo Fly.
**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
