You spoke. We listened. The new 2021 XPD now has more fin = more fun!

The most versatile packraft available, the XPD is rough, tough, and made out of super innovative stuff (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).

Built on our award-winning Rogue-Lite platform, but constructed of the same commercial-grade 1,000d reinforced PVC we use on the Recon series, the XPD is engineered to be the ultimate combination of rugged, minimalist, and durable. It comes fully equipped with a commercial raft grade Leafield D7 valve, super-compact Nano Barrel Pump, Compression Strap Set, Inflatable Seat and Repair Kit with Glue. 

For 2021 we’ve added a 9in (23cm) fin for better tracking, and made it removable with an American Standard Fin Box that accommodates most e-motors for when you’ve got a lot of water to cover, or just feel like taking it easy! 

Designed with input from SOCOM and SAR teams, the rugged XPD weighs in at just 14lb (6.4kg), packs down small enough to fit in a backpack, and is ideal for entry-level paddlers, lakes, hunting, multi-sport adventures, car camping, weekend-warriors, and anyone looking to (literally) tear it up out there!


ABOUT OPTIONAL TIZIP

What is a TiZip? 

A TiZip is a waterproof, pressure-resistant zipper made to keep water out. For over 20 years, this product has been instrumental in the creation of numerous boats, backpacks, and garments. It’s airtight, interlocking features make this closure even stronger and sealing lips encasing the zipper bolsters its waterproof properties. 

How Does a TiZip Keep My Packraft Airtight? 

TiZip manufactures four different types of zippers that each have various uses. For our Kokopelli packraft cargo holds, we utilize the Waterseal — a polyurethane zipper with a metal slider that is suitable for freshwater and saltwater use. The TIZIP’s plastic teeth are first affixed to strong, polyurethane-coated tape and then secured within a sealing lip that envelops the interlocking teeth. Through a time-tested and continually tweaked process of welding, sewing, taping, and gluing, the TIZIP is heavy-duty and reliable, ensuring your cargo hold is air and watertight.

How Do I Keep My TiZip in the Best Working Condition? 

When you receive your packraft with the added TiZip cargo storage, we’ll also include a special lubricant you will need to apply to the zipper on occasion. Apply the lubricant generously to each side of the opened zipper, then gently slide the TiZip pull back and forth, opening and closing the zipper multiple times to ensure the lubricant evenly coats all teeth. 

Additionally, you need to make sure to keep the TiZip clean from debris. Sand and dirt can damage your TiZip over time.

What Can I Store in My Pontoons? 

Our packrafts are ultra-durable and built to carry you through multi-day excursions, however, there are a few items that shouldn’t go into the cargo hold. Sharp objects like fishing hooks, rods, or cutting utensils shouldn’t be loosely stored where they can puncture the material. It’s also vital to pack your pontoons evenly so your boat will remain balanced and track evenly. Packing gear isn’t just limited to flatwater paddling trips but can also be used for overnight whitewater rafting as well. Storing items in your packraft’s pontoons doesn’t hinder the boat’s durability or performance.

Nights spent on a riverbank under the stars are made much more comfortable with warm, dry gear. The TiZip zipper allows packrafters to go farther and faster because it provides a safe, protected spot for all overnight essentials. Plus, keeping gear within the boat eliminates the need to strap items on the bow or stern, meaning more room for your precious pup or a cooler full of cold beverages. We trust the TiZip to keep our packrafts airtight and waterproof —  providing you with the ultimate vessel for exploration.
