    Pack raft anyone?

    These look very cool. 2.2kg and packs down to a two person tent size, get a nice lightweight 4 piece carbon paddle and you would be sorted to hunt up a river, stash the raft/paddle, hit the tops, shoot some shit and raft out....

    heaps of videos on youtube, they look tough as hell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKNb9Wi4kgw

    Bit pricey tho

    Saw one of these at the Hollyford road end last year. The girl who was paddling it has a huge backpack strapped on top as well. Looks like a bloody nice bit of kit.

    Keep an eye on Tardme, seen a couple come up when tourists leave the country.

    Looks fun and would be bloody handy.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The wetsuit, buoyancy aid and stack hat would add a bit of weight and bulk tho!

    They look very unstable. Fun though.

    Spent many years as a Rafting guide, or I'll say is when it goes bad it goes bad fast.

    They might be good for running down a river but I wouldn't want to cross a lake w one. I prefer my Canadian, tho I concede it's not fun to port off the water
