Kokopelli XPD packraft (with Tizip)
The XPD packraft is a responsive high pressure design, giving it the maneuverability of a kayak with the stability of a raft. It's designed to stand up to professional use yet be easy for your kids to use, and can handle up to Class II moving water. The folks at Kokopelli tested it all over the world on rivers, in slot canyons, ocean sounds and over sharp coral reefs. Despite its toughness, this little raft will fit into a carry-on.
This tough raft is made of 1000 denier Reinforced PVC - the same material used for commercial rafts. The seams are welded and the floor attaches to the pontoons with a glued sidewall reinforced with v-seam tape around the entire interior of the packraft. The GRI Push-Push valve is the same as you'll find on all SUPs and is not glued or welded but threaded and screwed together, so it won't come apart.
The inflatable seat gets you 4" off the floor for a better paddling angle and more comfortable sitting position. The boat has its fullest volume in the stern where you sit, tapering to a slight bow rocker so you get a stable, easy handling boat. Use the four D-rings on the front and 2 on the rear for securing your gear. This model comes with the 21" TiZip zipper which gives you access to the pontoon interior for storage.
