About us & our packrafts
We are a young couple and German Packraft startup . With traveling being a major part of our jobs as pilots, we found Packrafting to be the perfect sport to bring along wherever we go. The small size and weight of our products make it possible to explore new places and combine different sports with paddling.
Especially the different perspective from the water, has always been a great joy for us.
Our special philosophy
After several years and hundreds or hours of paddling and testing Packrafts from different manufacturers, we decided to design our own Packrafts and put them on the market. We hope to motivate more people to start with this extraordinary sport and help Packrafting to advance as a sport itself, by offering a product which is of high quality at a reasonable price. We want a personal, direct communication with our costumers and are always happy to give advice or help to you, as our fellow paddlers! In the other side we are also open for advice and new ideas and will find a good solution, if problems should occur.
Meeting you in person for one of our roll-courses, or planning a paddling trip together, would additionally be a great joy for us.
We started our shop as a hobby and it’s not our main source of income. Therefore we are currently not interested in making a livelihood out of it. Our main interest is to establish our company to this exciting new market and to design Packrafts of great quality and share them with you. That’s the main reason we can offer you a pricing, which is considerably better than that of other manufacturers. We order in bulk and leave out costly, unnecessary accessories, to provide a great deal to you. On the other side we test every raft ourselves and make sure we use the best raw material TPU available on the market and ensure high production standards together with our partners in China. Having quick communications and all the possibilities to produce several different packraft forms and dimensions, we can offer you to design your own Packraft, as well.
Thanks for visiting our webpage and always safe paddling!

Our Packrafts convince with reliably good handling characteristics, high load capacity, quality workmanship and practical design!
To this end, we incorporate our many years of experience in water sports and rely on high-quality materials with low weight and small pack size.
The standard yellow-blue color scheme has a natural look, is easily recognizable on the water and does not heat up excessively in summer.
Our packrafts are carefully crafted, additionally thermo-welded and are extensively checked for defects before being shipped to you. We deliberately do without unnecessary extras and thus keep it simple, practical and inexpensive for our customers.
The matter with the TZIP:
Many manufacturers have now installed this as standard on all models.
We, however, only use it deliberately on some models. For most customers in Europe, a TZIP storage system is not automatically worthwhile. The following points should be noted:
A TZIP is high-maintenance, sensitive to dirt and, as a consequence, often leaks. Replacement is usually not feasible at home. We therefore recommend the TZIP Storage System only for longer tours and expeditions, because the normal luggage for a weekend trip can be easily stored on the bow of the Packrafts. There it does not restrict the driving characteristics and is accessible without letting air out of the packraft. As an alternative to the TZIP we offer a 60l bow bag. This can be combined with a 40l bow bag mounted on the stern to create 100l luggage volume.
