Packrafting is a relatively new sport that has really started to take off in Arizona due to Todd Martin’s book Grand Canyoneering. Most people start off using a Explorer 200 ($20 pool toy) to float down the Colorado River. However, they are heavy and take up most of the room in your pack. The Canyon Flatwater 2, is the perfect solution for those who really like the sport. It rolls down to the size of Nalgene and weighs only 1.5 pounds. It has an inflation tube so you can add air once it deflates from the cold water and the easily removable inflation tube allows for a quick deflation to portage. Paired with our new Canyon Jugs to keep your gear dry and our lightweight aluminum paddles you too can be a Grand Canyoneer.
