We get it. Whether it’s packs, shoes, or sleeping bags, if you are big and tall, finding high-performance outdoor gear is hard. So we’re making it easy with the Mule, a spacious and super stable backcountry packraft that will comfortably carry a 250+ pound paddler and 100 pounds of gear without feeling bogged down.
The Mule is the ideal solo hunting & fishing packraft, with the capacity to carry out medium-sized animals, and back-packable size and weight. It’s perfect for sheep or caribou hunts and sneaking into remote rivers for a little fishing and relaxation.
The Mule is built with our 11.7-inch diameter Cargo Hull, which features our center panel stern and late rise bow to maximize stability, buoyancy, legroom, and cargo capacity. You can build your Mule with Open, Removeable Whitewater Deck, and Self Bailing configurations, plus you can add our innovative Cargo Fly zipper internal storage system.
OPEN: this configuration is our simplest, lightest, and most economical build configuration. It’s perfect for anything where you don’t need the extra protection and performance of a spray deck or self bailer.
REMOVABLE WHITEWATER DECK: this configuration functions like a breakdown kayak style deck and features a large cockpit, one-piece pex coaming, and an ultralight secure fitting spray skirt, plus a water-resistant perimeter zipper to convert to an open boat for more relaxing days. The Removable WW Deck maximizes versatility for the broadest range of paddling conditions. It is drier than the Cruiser Deck, but not as dry as the standard Whitewater Deck in waves, splashes, and whitewater.
SELF BAILER: this configuration is ideal for warmer climates, frequent entry and exit, and anyone that prefers a self-bailing style setup. Our self bailing design features a lightweight 3/4 length 7-inch thick seat in the rear that is protected by a sleeve and a heavy-duty baffled foot brace in the front that keeps your feet up and out of the water.
