At a mere 9.4 lbs, the new 7.5 foot Kokopelli Nirvana SB PackRaft - part of the Whitewater Series - is an exceptional choice for paddlers needing lightweight, durable river-running options. The Nirvana self-bailing packraft received a 'Best in Show' by the Gear Junkie at Outdoor Retailer in 2015.  

New for this year, all Kokopelli packrafts now come with upgraded Leafield D7 military valves, rather than Boston valves. While the majority of Kokopelli packrafts features two main chambers, the Nirvana Self-Bailing now has one main chamber (and one on the floor), thus increasing the storage area. 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. 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.

The Nirvana Whitewater series also sports a number of changes, beginning with an added color to round out the selection. The new French Gray (more of a desaturated Army gray-green) is for those opting for less visibility. All Nirvana models now will come with a back band, rather than inflatable seat rest, which provides more coverage and lower back support when traversing rapids. 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.

The Nirvana Self-Bailing PackRaft models have been slightly redesigned with more volume in the stern. This provides more buoyancy and a slightly lower waterline, eliminating water pooling issues.

Eleven-inch diameter tubes ensure stability on the water as well as providing some protection from swells.

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.

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

The Kokopelli Nirvana SB PackRaft 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.
