From the manufacturer: Engineered with commercial-grade durability, the 1,000d reinforced PVC Recon is the most durable whitewater packraft ever made. Self-Bailing packrafts are engineered to keep you above the water by automatically draining water from the boat via the combination of the inflatable floor and drain-holes.
The Self-Bailing design excels at minimizing weight, setup complexity, and most importantly a faster self-rescue time when compared to a spraydecked packraft. Additionally, because PVC constructed packrafts can be inflated to a higher pressure compared to traditional TPU packrafts, the Recon won’t flex while plugging bigger holes and features on the river.
This 18lbs (8.2 kgs) boat is perfect for road-to-river whitewater, after-work laps, and rated up to Class IV.
