AIRE BAKraft Hybrid

The Aire BAKraft (Backcountry Airlite Kayak) is the only packable raft of it's kind. At 7 pounds, the AIRE BAKraft Hybrid is the lightest self-bailing packraft of it's kind. The dual-membrane design is made with tough Dyneema hull fabric and a urethane AIREcell inside. This creates a light weight, packable boat with superior air retention and simplified in-field repairs. Whether rough whitewater or alpine lakes, the AIRE BAKraft is adventure ready.

Self-Bailing Floor:

  • Inflated floor with drain pockets that drains quickly and efficiently. This design also adds hull rigidity from bow to stern. This stiff I-beam floor creates a 4.5” solid cushion between you and the rocks and water beneath.


  • By taking the traditional inflatable kayak and making it shorter and rounder, we’ve gained the storability and lightness of a pack raft, but kept the sleek aerodynamic qualities that make a kayak slice effortlessly through both rough and calm water.

Whitewater Valves:

  • Even though other valve types may be lighter, we’ve refused to compromise on valve style or quality. Using the same valves you’d see on a full size raft, inflation time, deflation time and durability are non-negotiable.

Ultra Light Weight:

  • The BAKraft is the lightest self-bailing pack raft on the market. A proprietary Dyneema and Sprectra support fabric shell is tough yet light, providing strength 10x that of quality steel of equal weight. Using this American made fabric, we’ve been able to add durability to this light, yet strong shell.

Dual-Membrane Design:

  • A 100% air tight urethane bladder provides superior air retention (0% loss over 48 hours when tested). Two layers provides backcountry confidence through added durability. If you do happen to puncture both layers, this system also lends to easier in field repairs; just unzip to expose the urethane bladder, stick on the patch and go.

Comes With:

    • Inflation bag
    • Top off hand pump
    • Thigh Straps
    • Repair Kit
