Description

Kokopelli's 7.5 foot Recon Spray Deck PackRaft - part of the Whitewater Series - is an exceptional choice for paddlers needing durable river-running options. Weighing in at 18 lbs, the Recon Spray Deck features completely redesigned combing ring, and a brand new spraydeck that minimizes setup hassles and won’t get thrashed even when you do.

Like the Nirvana models, the Recon is designed with 30% more volume in the stern. This provides more buoyancy and a slightly lower waterline, eliminating water pooling issues while 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. 

The inflatable floor with integrated seat is made from 210d diamond-ripstop nylon and uses a D7 Leafield valve. Starting at 7 in (17.9 cm) thick in the seat area, the floor tapers to 4 in (10.2 cm) thick from the knees to the bow. This keeps you comfortable and improves paddling position which allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.

The Recon Spray Deck PackRaft features two main chambers - one perimeter 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. Designed for intense whitewater or rugged conditions, the Recon sidewalls and hull features a robust 0.9 mm PVC construction.

Twelve-inch diameter tubes ensure stability on the water as well as providing some protection from swells. Ten integrated nylon d-rings serve as convenient gear-tie downs.

Accumulated water passes through 15 one-inch open ports, strategically placed around the bow and stern.  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. Use of a wetsuit or drysuit (depending on temperature) is recommended when using self-bailing packrafts due to water coming in and out of the packraft.

The Recon is part of Kokopelli's Whitewater Series. The narrower trim allows for a more fluid carve into and out of eddies while the increased rocker makes surfing your favorite hole that much easier. Whitewater Series packrafts are two chambered, have extra thick floor and sidewall material, and extra floor reinforcement on the sidewalls. They also feature a Thigh-Strap system (sold separately). Thigh-Straps allow for a more responsive handling whether you are carving into an eddy, surfing a wave or even rolling your packraft.

(Select Tizip Option) One 21-inch TiZip zipper provides waterproof access inside the rear chamber - simply zip open the chamber and store camping supplies such as tent, sleeping bag and medium size dry bags. There are 2 d-rings placed inside the cargo area for attaching optional Delta Inflatable Dry Bags. 

The Recon is perfect for rapid water environments through Class III. While heavier than the other Kokopelli Packrafts, it can still be backpacked to remote locations, taken on camping trips, tossed on a plane or stashed in an RV. With the hand pump and gauge, the Recon Spray Deck PackRaft can be ready for the water in less than five minutes.
