Kokopelli Packraft Co-founder/CEO Kelley Smith runs through the Colorado company’s new two-model series (consisting of the Rogue and Rogue-Lite), which features a first-in-class Kevlar reinforced floor with double-layer taped seams. The Rogue-Lite Packraft is an ultra-lightweight, one-person, inflatable kayak that is durable enough for river travel and is an excellent companion for alpine lake adventures. After a year of designing and testing the Rogue-Lite, the result is a compact, high-performing inflatable kayak that’s easy to set up, weighs under 5 pounds and packs small enough for plenty of multi-sport paddling adventures incorporating backpacking or biking. The Rogue Packraft Kickstarter Campaignto get the two packrafts into full production runs through Sunday night. Learn more about the campaign and its associated rewards.
