If whitewater rafting is your thing, you definitely will want to check out the 2019 Kokopelli Recon Packraft. Billed as a river warrior, 2019 Kokopelli Recon Packraft is nimble, stable, incredibly responsive and at the same time tough like a rock. OK. Maybe quite as tough as a rock, but you get the idea. Recon is latest in the Kokopelli Packraft family.
Engineered using the toughest and most bomber material, and together with the basic construction as the whitewater-specific, self-bailing Nirvana packraft, Recon is the perfect road-to-river whitewater rafting gear that’s ready to rough it out in Class II-IV whitewater.
2019 Kokopelli Recon Packraft boasts a long list of features, including Leafield D7 valve, 3-point thigh strap attachment points, 6-point D-ring system, built-in seat with adjustable backband, self-bailing inflatable floor, and finally, it is made from heavy-duty 9 mm PVC body – the same material as used on commercial rafts, but a thinner – making this one packraft that needs no babying.
It measures 90 inches (228.6 cm) long, 27 inches (92 cm) wide, weighs just 18 pounds and one ounce (8.2 kilograms), and packs into a tight package that measures a small 16 x 12 inches (30 x 15 cm). 2019 Kokopelli Recon Packraft will retail for $900 when it becomes available on March 29.
