NRS will sell the floors separate. I ordered one to use with my Alpaca in the event that some else I am boating with uses my NRS Packraft...
That sounds like the way to go IMO. I've been looking at getting one myself, and if I can scrape together the money, that's rob ably what I will do.
On the issue of weight, the Alpacka isn't that much different when you compare apples to apples. Without the floor that comes with the NRS, the difference is less than a half a pound, or one less beer in the boat with you... LOL
The Denali and a couple of the others also do come with a seat and a backrest, just not a floor.
So, for the difference in quality (from what I've read here and elsewhere anyway), the Alpacka seems to be the better of the two right now.
