Alpacka Raft was born out of a 700-mile traverse of Alaska’s Brooks Range guided only by a topo-map. Expeditions are in their blood. More than just a trip, an expedition means testing your limits, pushing into the unknown, and sometimes enduring a bit of suffering on the way. Weight is at a premium, but so is performance. To be successful, you make choices between nice to have, and need to have.

The Expedition is higher performance than the Classic, but is lighter and more packable than the Wolverine. It earns its name by combining Alpacka's high-performance Rally Hull with classic seating, backband, patented 4-point thigh straps, whitewater footbrace, and a special performance fit. The result, Alpacka's most versatile packraft, for big backcountry adventure miles, weekend excursions, and your local whitewater runs—The perfect packraft for every type of trip you take.

*NOTE: the build and features of this boat were customized by Neptune Mountaineering. This boat features a removable whitewater deck and Cargo Fly zipper for internal storage. Now in a new color!

Hull: Proprietary 210-denier high count nylon

Floor: 840-denier ballistic nylon floor (Made in USA)

Sizing & Specifications:
The chart in the images shows the recommended size based on your sit length and the Expedition’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 Expedition is sized for a performance fit, meaning that a typical paddler in the recommended size can press their feet against the bow when straightening their legs which provides better control than a relaxed fit and more all-day comfort than the whitewater fit. You can size up or down for a more performance or relaxed fit. We recommend sizing down or getting a whitewater foot brace if you are going to add thigh straps.
