Our largest and burliest packraft, the self bailing Forager delivers two-person seating and massive cargo capacity in a super stable backpackable package. Whether you are doing fly-in Alaska river trips, running western whitewater classics, big game hunting in remote areas, or fly fishing in the backcountry, the Forager is big and tough enough to handle any adventure. Front passenger platform seat sold separate.

Product Description

Packrafting is often described as an out-of-the-box adventure sport because it allows you to combine both land and water travel in the backcountry. Yet, the Forager goes further and lets you think outside the packraft box with unrivaled durability, stability, and cargo capacity in a backpackable package. Want to keep it light? The Forager is light enough to backpack for two. Want to load it up? The Forager’s XL Cargo Fly will take hundreds of pounds of cargo and keep it safe and dry while improving stability and handling. Want to save hundreds on raft rental costs? You can pack a Forager and two sets of paddling gear into a single duffel and fly anywhere in the world for the cost of only a checked bag. Want to run whitewater? We’ve loaded the Forager up with 12-days of food and equipment, plus two Gnarwhals as spare boats, for a self-support winter run down the Grand Canyon, successfully paddling through all of the major rapids along the way. If you are looking for a two person packraft that can handle everything from a classic western river trip, to fly in trips to the remote areas of Alaska, to self-supported big game hunting, to backcountry drift boat fishing, to worldwide travel, the Forager has all your bases covered.

Due to the seating configuration, the Forager is best paddled with a canoe style paddle. However, it can be paddled by a single stern paddler with a kayak paddle so that the front paddler can fish, take pictures, make lunch, etc. We recommend the Aquabound Shred-Apart paddle with the Forager, with the 240cm version being preferred.

Self Bailing

The Forager is available only in a self bailing configuration.

Cargo Fly Zipper

Our innovative Cargo Fly internal storage system comes standard on the Forager. The Cargo Fly features an airtight zipper installed in the stern of the boat to allow you to store 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.

Internal Dry Bags may be purchased separately and are designed to work with the Cargo Fly system. The bags slip inside the Cargo Fly zipper and can be organized along the inside of the tubes to balance the load. The Forager has internal attachments to clip the dry bags in place. The XL Internal Dry Bags are sized to fit with the Forager hull size, but the Roll-Top and Zippered Dry Bags will work as well. We recommend 1-2 sets of bags for the Forager.

*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.
***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.
