Description

Packrafting is often described as an out-of-the-box adventure sport because it allows you to combine both land and water travel in the backcountry. Yet, the Forager goes further and lets you think outside the packraft box with unrivaled durability, stability, and cargo capacity in a backpackable package. Want to keep it light? The Forager is light enough to backpack for two. Want to load it up? The Forager’s XL Cargo Fly will take hundreds of pounds of cargo and keep it safe and dry while improving stability and handling. Want to save hundreds on raft rental costs? You can pack a Forager and two sets of paddling gear into a single duffel and fly anywhere in the world for the cost of only a checked bag. Want to run whitewater? We’ve loaded the Forager up with 12-days of food and equipment, plus two Gnarwhals as spare boats, for a self-support winter run down the Grand Canyon, successfully paddling through all of the major rapids along the way. If you are looking for a two person packraft that can handle everything from a classic western river trip, to fly in trips to the remote areas of Alaska, to self-supported big game hunting, to backcountry drift boat fishing, to worldwide travel, the Forager has all your bases covered.

Due to the seating configuration, the Forager is best paddled with a canoe style paddle. However, it can be paddled by a single stern paddler with a kayak paddle so that the front paddler can fish, take pictures, make lunch, etc. We recommend the Aquabound Shred-Apart paddle with the Forager, with the 240cm version being preferred.
