Why go packrafting?
Packrafts are a adventure in waiting for those passionate about outdoor sports. This experience brings together at least two sports and allows you to vary your activities and enjoy the landscapes between the ascent and the descent differently.
Tour on foot or by bike, for one or several days, you will reconnect with nature and enjoy it as much as possible!
What is the difference between Rafting and Packrafting?
Rafting and packrafting can be enjoyed on rivers with a varying number of rapids. In rafting, you are in a team on the same craft, and you steer the raft with a simple paddle (canoe style) and head downriver. In packrafting, you head upstream and then paddle downriver in your packraft (we recommend that you stay together as a group, and use a double paddle (kayak-style).
The packraft stands alone and weighs only 2 kg, while the raft, weighing around 80 kg and can be carried between the group.
How was the design worked on?
A packraft in the colours found in river scenery to allow you to have an immersive experience. For safety reasons, the orange allows you to remain visible at all times and to be tracked on the water. The Itiwit teams have created different prototypes in order to test the different shapes and provide you with maximum manoeuvrability and good stability. In the interest of compactness, the packraft only has the essentials so that it can keep up with you on all your adventures.
How to inflate the packraft.
Connect the tube to the valve of the packraft as well as to the valve of the inflation bag. Open the bag fully to trap a maximum amount of air. Close the top of the bag and roll it to allow the air to pass into the raft. You can press it with your knees to help.
The packraft is sufficiently inflated when you can no longer inflate it with the bag. Use the same technique to inflate your seat.
What does the Kayak bag contain?
The pack includes:
-The “pump bag”: storage bag which is also the bag which will help you to inflate the packraft
- the tube
- the packraft
- the seat
- a repair kit
Safety on the water
Remember to use a ISO 12402-5 buoyancy aid vest and an EN 1484 helmet when you head out onto rivers.
