    Default New Packraft

    13 lbs, 10'6" long x 65" wide, optional drop stitch inflatable floor, couldn't find any specs on the fabric though.
    He's going to be at the Sportsmans show so maybe he'll bring one along.

    That's not much smaller than my Aire Trib but a heck of a lot lighter, oh 100 lbs or so.

    If those weights are accurate, my best guess on fabric type and construction:

    210 Denier Urethane fabric main body (coating thickness might range)

    420 Denier Urethane floor fabric.

    interesting. Side note on this would be ZEBAC North America http://www.zebec.com/ I was chatting with these guys about 10 years ago just could not get them to produce a couple of trial boats for my personal use. Great people but not interested in limited run stuff i.e. less then a BUNCH of boats which of course does not work well for testing purpose and is a little heavy on the pocket if you know what I mean. Seems to be very similar construction. Check out the WP4 raft.

    Larry,

    Is that the fabric weight of an Alpaca that you are referring to? Must be thin material to be that large and that light.

    yep, that's what my source suggested.
