The gold standard by which everything else is measured, the Classic delivers adventure driven fun from your backyard to the backcountry. All of the quality materials and workmanship that Alpacka have built their reputation on, with minimalist features that take us back to their roots and budget friendly pricing.

Way back in 2000, after suffering through endless tears and repairs of cheap “pool toy” quality boats, Alpacka had a dream of making a true wilderness worthy packraft—a boat that was light enough to fit in a backpack yet would not let you down in the cold, rocky rivers of the Alaskan Arctic. Thus, the original Alpacka Raft was born and a new era of packrafting began. Little did we know packrafts would not only change backcountry travel, but also deliver a fun and easy new way to enjoy your local rivers and lakes. As packrafting has evolved, so has the original line-up of the Alpacka, Yak, and Llama. Alpacka decided to return to their roots with the Classic, a simple, elegant packraft with options to fit every budget.
The Classic keeps it simple with the adventure tested Classic Hull, a no fuss seating system, minimalist attachments, and bombproof materials and construction.

Configure it exactly to your liking with Open, Cruiser Deck, Whitewater Deck, Removable Whitewater Deck, and Self Bailing options. You can also add the innovative Cargo Fly zipper internal storage system with or without internal dry bags. Feeling the need for additional tie downs? You can add factory installed grab loops, strap plates, D-Rings, and handles or check out our high-performance Expedition models, which include double D-Rings and handles standard.

Classic Built Configurations:
  • Open:  The Open configuration is the simplest, lightest, and most economical build configuration. It’s perfect for anything where you don't need the extra protection and performance of a spray deck or self bailer.
  • Cruiser Deck: The new Cruiser Deck is ideal for paddling easy waters in temperate and cool climates. The Cruiser Deck functions as a splash guard and will keep you drier and warmer than an open boat in splashy water, wind, and rain, but is not as dry as the whitewater decks. The deck features a Velcro closure along the left side which easily comes apart in the event of a wet-exit. When not in use, the deck rolls away to the right and is secured with a low-profile slot and toggle system but is not removable.

  • Whitewater Deck: The most popular option, the standard Whitewater Deck is the driest and warmest configuration for the Classic. It is ideal for all water types in cool climates and the highest performance option for whitewater. The Whitewater Deck features a large kayak style cockpit, one-piece pex coaming, and an ultralight secure fitting spray skirt.

  • Removable WW Deck: The Removable WW Deck features the same cockpit as the standard Whitewater Deck, but with a perimeter zipper for converting to an open boat for more relaxing days. The Removable WW Deck maximizes versatility for the broadest range of paddling conditions.  It is drier than the Cruiser Deck, but not as dry as the standard Whitewater Deck in waves, splashes, and whitewater.

  • Self Bailer: The Self Bailer configuration is ideal for warmer climates, frequent entry and exit, and anyone that prefers a self-bailing style setup. The self bailing design features a lightweight 3/4 length 7-inch thick seat in the rear that is protected by a sleeve and a heavy-duty baffled foot brace in the front that keeps your feet up and out of the water. 

  • Cargo Fly Zipper: The Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution, which features an airtight zipper installed in the stern of the boat to allow you to load your gear inside the tubes. The system provides drier and more secure gear storage and improved paddling performance due to a lower center of gravity. The Cargo Fly is perfect for expeditions, whitewater performance, and keeping your gear dry in any conditions. Roll top internal dry bags are an optional upgrade on all Classic models with a Cargo Fly. The dry bags clip in place along each side of the tubes with a side release buckle and allow for better organization and weight balance than placing the contents of your pack loose inside the Cargo Fly. They also act as additional balanced air chambers to make it easier to get to shore in the event of a puncture.

    **Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding the boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
