AIRE and Bakraft are please to announce they have teamed up to create the ultimate back-country boat.  The AIRE BAKraft Hybrid is scheduled to launch Spring 2015 and will be available through all of AIRE’s fine dealers or



Whitewater, still water or remote water—we’ll take you there. Utilizing the most innovative, high strength Dyneema and Spectra fabrics® , our versatile packraft is perfect for the intense packrafting enthusiast and for the laid back day hiker.



Weighing in at mere 7 pounds, the BAKraft is the lightest packraft of it’s kind. The dual-membrane design, unique among packrafts, offers a hard exterior shell fabric with a separate urethane AIREcell (bladder) offering superior air retention and simplified in-field repairs.



Designed over a period of 3 years sitting side by side with Greg Ramp, President of AIRE, Inc. foremost IK designer in the nation, a hybrid packraft/ kayak was created, optimized for paddling rough whitewater and slicing through calm lakes or streams.
