Reviews From The Pros

The Nirvana Spraydeck is my go to packraft for whitewater. It feels like an inflatable version of a hardsided whitewater kayak, yet 1/4 the weight. With the spraydeck, spray skirt, and thigh straps, it’s like the packraft is an extension of you. It’s responsive, stable, and forgiving, great for whitewater beginners to experts.

It’s great in low flow creeks to big water wave trains to surfing waves and holes. The spray deck/skirt combo keeps you dry making it a great choice for getting after it year round.


I’m a huge fan of the Nirvana Self-Bailing. I love the self-bailer because you can easily hop in and out, and if you flip, it’s possible to get back in mid-rapid - as was the case for me when paddling some of the larger waves on the Grand Canyon.


I’m addicted to whitewater. The Nirvana Spraydeck offers everything I need to have fun on the river. The spraydeck keeps me dry and warm and due to its light weight an d small pack size traveling around the world is now super easy compared to a kayak.

My packraft is always and everywhere with me, now I do not have to go without a flow.


The Recon Self-Bailing has opened up another avenue of enjoying the river for me. I can paddle my local creek at a lower volume than I could with a kayak, yet still have fun. It handles small drops, low volume creeks, and high volume rivers well. I can guide beginner paddlers with little river running experience down a river since the boats are stable and easy to paddle and you are not “inside” the boat, like a kayak.


First Descent of New Zealand's Wild Southern Alps

Barny Young and fellow packrafters started hiking near the small town of Whataroa, New Zealand and headed roughly 35km into the hills. This is where the whitewater starts raging.
