I've been paddling the AIRE BAKraft Expedition for the past month and am excited to share my impressions. This is the boat for those of you who want to hike into (or out of) mult-day runs.
The unexpected side benefit of this boat was how slippery the Spectra material is. It slides over rocks better than urethane making it feel more like a hardshell.
Here's a longer write-up with some photos:
AIRE BAKraft Expedition Review | Northwest Rafting Co.
I've never bought AIRE boats before because I'm personally not a fan of the inner bladder - outer bladder design. With some of the hi tech materials coming out I'm starting to see that the AIRE design could be the future of innovation. I hope the next thing they do is a 40 lb paddleboat.
I look forward to a great discussion and hope that Greenwall chimes in with some comic relief.
