Lightweight Kayaking

We've been using the SOTAR ATVs with Watershed Bags (42 pounds) for our Chetco trips and I've just finished testing the AIRE BAKraft and Hyperlite packs (13 pounds) and am stoked on the AIRE/Hyperlite combo.

Here's a blog post with more thoughts, photos, and a video:

This new technology opens up a lot of new possibilities for river running.

Enjoy!

thanks Zach, am I missing something, not much of a review there. Would be nice to see some vids and more pics of that combo instead of the ATV/watershed setup and some more in-depth observation about the toughness/puncture resistence of the new Bakraft.

After beating up the Cuben Fiber BAKraft on several rocky runs I am convinced that boat is bomber.

I was running the BAKraft and taking all the video so I didn't get any video of myself but hopefully the video gives you a sense of what I put that boat through.

What I'm most excited about is the combo of the BAKraft and the Hyperlite pack.
