    The Koaro with a whitewater spray deck and skirt is the best option to stay completely dry and warm. If you are planning on doing some packrafting over Winter, then look no further, we've got you covered.


    This packraft is perfect for your backcountry adventures and exploration. Ideal for hunting and fishing, exploring alpine lakes and crossing rivers. This boat is your best bet for cold New Zealand waters.

    If you want additional storage, select "Storage Zipper" from the drop-down menu. It includes 2 storage dry bags.


    This Koaro comes with a permanent spray deck (including clip and zip poles), a whitewater skirt, a seat (removable), 4 attachment points,  an inflation bag and a repair kit.

    • Design

      All our packrafts are designed to be light enough to be transported in your backpack while exploring the backcountry over a couple of days. The Koaros are tough enough to transport one person with a heavily loaded backpack (up to 50kg) down fast-flowing rivers. They are super stable and easy to handle.

      Mix and match: Our rafts are custom-made to meet everyone’s personal needs. We can add zips for storage, attachment points, thigh straps, spray decks and self-bailing floors. For the lightweight freaks amongst us we can build a raft with a thinner fabric. Check out the size chart in the gallery above and chose your size (Model).

      The Koaro rolls up small (the size of a two-person backpacking tent).
