Tipping the scales at just 1.24kgs, the Scout is everything you need when weight and space is at a premium. Perfect for fastpacking, crossing rivers, canyoneering, and mountain lake fishing.

The 2019 Scout features a new hull shape with additional volume in the bow and stern, and provides more leg room than previous generations. This allows the Scout to be used as a full fledged backcountry packraft in addition to its regular duties as a canyoneering and mountain lake specialist.

The Scout will be offered with a short Cargo Fly for the first time ever. The Cargo Fly version will be perfect for backcountry trips where weight is at a premium, but you need a boat that can handle a couple of days of paddling with all of your gear.

Scout Build Configurations:

  • Open: The Scout is available only in the open build configuration. We are not offering spray decks or self bailing configurations for the Scout as it is primarily designed as a minimalist boat.
  • Cargo Fly Zipper: The Cargo Fly is the ultimate packraft gear storage solution featuring 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 Scout Cargo Fly zippers is shorter than our standard Cargo Fly zippers, but still adequate to fit most medium sized stuff sacks and small (non-frame) backpacks). The Scout’s extra small tubes are not compatible with our internal dry bags.

*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.

**Weight includes all components except inflation bag, repair kit, and internal dry bags for Cargo Fly.

***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.
