OR Day 1: AIRE’s Bigger, Bolder, Lighter Pack Raft

AIRE’s brand new Expedition pack raft promises big thrills and Rapid Mag can’t wait for a chance to get it on the water. A bigger model in the already popular BAKraft series, this self-bailing, 10-pound boat looks perfect for adventures in the five to 10 day range and easily packs up into a small backpack. Though we expect backpackers on lengthy missions will embrace the Expedition, it’ll really shine for whitewater adventures in hard to reach locations. Thigh straps and comfortable backrest complete the features. The Expedition is built with a touch Spectra shell and urethane AIREcells inside for durability. The bag the Expedition comes in doubles as a inflation system, along with a high pressure pump.
