BUILT TO ORDER - Alpacka Whitewater Refuge

Ships within 6-8 weeks, with free delivery to ALL countries within the European Union and to the UK and Norway (Includes all import duties and VAT.)

The Whitewater Refuge is exactly what it sounds like—the ultralight landscape adventure Refuge made more whitewater capable with whitewater rigging and a full strength 840d floor. Skilled paddlers will find the Whitewater Refuge a joy to paddle in wilderness class III and an excellent packraft to surf in the local play wave.

The final package comes in at right around 3.2kgs, which is lighter than a similar Classic that has no whitewater rigging.

This version has all of the same great features as the Refuge, but adds whitewater thigh straps, whitewater foot brace and a stronger floor, combining all of Alpackas best features into the lightest possible package for ultimate landscape traverses that include backcountry whitewater.

BUILD CONFIGURATIONS

WHITEWATER DECK: The Whitewater Refuge comes standard with the Whitewater Deck, Alpackas driest and warmest configuration. 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 and includes a one-piece PEX coaming, and an ultralight secure fitting spray skirt. Contact us if you need a XL or larger spray skirt tunnel size.

CARGO FLY: A standard option on the Refuge, the Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution. It 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. Size Small Internal Dry Bags may be purchased separately and are designed to work with the Cargo Fly system. The 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.

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.

***Max Capacity is the maximum total weight (paddlers and cargo) that the boat can reasonably carry in flatwater under ideal conditions. Actual capacity for any given trip will vary widely based on the paddler’s skill and water conditions. Please review our weight carrying capacity guide for further details.
