Way back in 2000, after suffering through endless tears and repairs of our cheap “pool toy” quality boats, Alpacka had a dream of making a true wilderness worthy packraft—a boat that was light enough to fit in a backpack yet would not let you down in the cold, rocky rivers of the Alaskan Arctic. Thus, the original Alpacka Raft was born and a new era of packrafting began. Little did Alpacka know packrafts would not only change backcountry travel, but also deliver a fun and easy new way to enjoy your local rivers and lakes. As packrafting has evolved, so has our original line-up of the Alpacka, Yak, and Llama. Alpacka decided to return to our roots with the Classic, a simple, elegant packraft with options to fit every budget.
The Classic keeps it simple with our adventure tested Classic Hull, a no fuss seating system, minimalist attachments, and bombproof materials and construction. Configure it exactly to your liking with Open, Whitewater Deck, and Removeable Whitewater Deck build configurations. You can also add our innovative Cargo Fly zipper internal storage system with or without internal dry bags. Feeling the need for additional tie downs? You can add factory installed grab loops, strap plates, D-Rings, and handles or check out our high-performance Expedition models, which include double D-Rings and handles standard.
