Change what you thought was possible in a packraft with the Gnarwhal and Wolverine, each proudly Hand Crafted by Alpacka Raft in Mancos, Colorado, USA.
The Gnarwhal provides unmatched stability and forgiveness for developing skills and confidence and charging hard in big volume rivers, while the Wolverine is the master of maneuverability, acceleration, edge control, and combat rolling in challenging whitewater. Prefer to paddle with a partner? The Forager is self-support Grand Canyon tested for tandem whitewater packrafting.
The Whitewater Series features three models for 2019: The Gnarwhal, Wolverine, and the Forager.
The Gnarwhal is the high-volume model (11.7 inch Rally Hull) and remains mostly unchanged for 2019, aside from lighter and more streamlined rigging.
The Wolverine is an all new mid-volume (10.6 inch Rally Hull) model that falls in between the Gnarwhal and the discontinued low-volume Alpackalypse.
The Gnarwhal and Wolverine will each come standard with a Cargo Fly, whitewater style seating, foam backband, and patented 4-Point Thigh Straps. The Gnarwhal and Wolverine are both sized for a tight whitewater fit, so that the paddler’s knees are deeply bent in order to use the thigh straps.
The Forager is unchanged for 2019, but is featured as a whitewater model in addition to being part of the Tandem and Sportsmen’s Series, due to its stable self-bailing configuration.
