MRS packrafts have become our number one best-selling item, and it’s easy to see why. They are fantastic on so many levels: quality of material, lightweight, easy to assemble and pack up, great warranty and FUN! Our family loves exploring mountain lakes and canals near our home around the Rocky Mountains. While we have not personally gone through any rapids yet, lots of our customers have, and they love MRS packrafts for whitewater.
If you aren’t familiar with packrafting, one of the newer sports in North America, it can seem like these boats are too good to be true! They fit into a backpack (no more carrying around a big bulky canoe or kay) and are surprisingly easy to inflate with the screw-on airbag where you “catch” air and compress it into the boat. After about ten scoops of air from the airbag, the vessel is 90% inflated. A few more puffs from your mouth or an optional (not-included) pump, and your raft is buoyant and ready to go. Another surprising feature of these inflatable boats is how sturdy they actually are. When people first see them, they think they might tear easily, but they are very durable. In the improbable event of damage to the material, MRS offers a three-year warranty. Our good friend had his stuck in an underwater cave for months, and even after that crazy adventure, he was able to use his MRS packraft.
MRS fully supports sustainable development and is deeply involved in the research and development of TPU-coated fabric. The TPU fabric in the MRS packrafts is all Swiss Bluesign®-certified, meaning that they are environmental-friendly and manufactured in a safe workspace.
The Nitrogen is the world's lightest packraft at only 880 grams, or 1.9 lbs. It is the ultimate extreme ultra-light packraft. The hull is made of 70D ripstop nylon fabric coated by TPU materials while the floor fabric is 210D. It only comes in black. The Nitrogen does not include a seat, backrest or skeg. This model is only suitable for packrafters who are looking for extremely lightweight rafts. This fabric is extremely thin and if you use the Nitrogen for activities that involve a lot of contact with rough surfaces, please be aware that the fabric may tear or become damaged.
