May 2011 Backpacker Magazine Review!

A 2010 Backpacking Light Staff Pick!

“… this is a packraft that I could justify in both cost and weight. I’ve only begun to play with this raft but it was the centerpiece of a multi-day trip with my 4-year-old son Henry this summer. It was an absolute pleasure to paddle around the lake, do some Tenkara fishing, explore some hard to reach talus fields, and to experience our favorite lake in an entirely new way. Then at night he slept soundly on it, making my Neo Air seem like solid rock in comparison.”

Lightweight Outdoors Gear Review

“In my opinion, for the ultralight backpacker looking for a means to cross non-technical water, the fisherman looking to access the prime swim in the middle of an alpine lake or anyone who has always wanted to carry a boat in their briefcase ‘just in case’, the FlytePacker might well be your perfect companion.”
