Special purchase of past season color in green/gray! An inflatable Kokopelli whitewater PackRaft with open, self-bailing ports, perfect for travel and remote locations - now with upgraded valves.

AirKayaks special - free Cannon Nokomis 230cm carbon breakdown paddle ($159 value) with purchase, while supplies last. Automatically added at checkout.

At a mere 9.2 lbs, the 7.5 foot Kokopelli Nirvana SB Self-bailing PackRaft - part of the Whitewater Series - is an exceptional choice for paddlers needing lightweight, durable river-running options. The Nirvana self-bailer received a 'Best in Show' by the Gear Junkie at Outdoor Retailer in 2015.

All Kokopelli packrafts now come with upgraded Leafield D7 military valves. The Nirvana Self-Bailing PackRaft has one main chamber (and one on the floor). The two-chamber design provides greater safety than traditional one-chamber packrafts, while one-inch seam welds with reinforced tape ensure durability and the highest-quality, air-holding properties. Built to exacting specifications, the Nirvana sidewalls are constructed from a 210 denier, double-coated nylon, while the floor features a beefed-up 840 denier material.

Eleven-inch diameter tubes ensure stability on the water as well as providing some protection from swells. Six integrated nylon d-rings serve as convenient gear-tie downs while an additional 4 d-rings are positioned on the inner tube for optional (not included) thigh straps.

Accumulated water passes through 14 one-inch open ports, strategically placed around the bow and stern. An included 5-inch inflatable floor with side wells provides extra buoyancy and allows the paddler to sit higher, keeping out of the water. The open design also offers quick entry and exit when scouting rapids, and a higher paddling position to allow deeper and more efficient paddle strokes. The floor features an integrated seat base and separate backband, for better support.

The Nirvana Whitewater series is available in two colors - yellow and French gray. The new French Gray (more of a desaturated Army gray-green) is for those opting for less visibility.

For 2018, the Nirvana models have been redesigned with 30% more volume in the stern. This provides more buoyancy and a slightly lower waterline, eliminating water pooling issues. Also for 2018, a new bottom hull construction makes the packrafts more rigid. By repositioning where the hull bottom attaches to the side chambers, the paddler sits a bit higher, and doesn’t sag down in the boat. This in turn improves the backband support (it is now positioned lower on the back), as well as making it easier to paddle over the side chambers.

With the included inflation bag, the Nirvana Self-Bailing PackRaft can be ready for the water in less than five minutes.

The Nirvana Self-Bailer is perfect for rapid water environments through Class III and can easily be backpacked to remote locations, taken on camping trips, tossed on a plane or stashed in an RV.
