    Comfy, light weight, stable

    Posted by Darryl M on 2021 Aug 5th

    Packraft was setup in about 12 min, it is light weight, about 13-14 lbs, easy to pack long distance. In water, comfy seat, not fastest due to its flat bottom and shape, but that adds stability. Easy to enter and exit. Handled waves better than hardshell kayaks of similar size.
