Testing your mettle on a stretch of whitewater remains one of the more pulse-pounding excursions a man or woman can embark on. But before you buy that GoPro, make sure you’ve got the right watercraft. If you’re going all out, the Alpackalypse has to be on your short list.

First off, Alpakca Rafts wants you to know that “This is not a kayak, nor is it a standard packraft you may be used to.” But what it is is a highly advanced adventure boat that’s taken six years to create. It’s designed for whitewater, with engineering that makes it quicker and more maneuverable, as well as having the ability to be rolled (self righted) like a kayak. It features Urethane coated 400 Denier Vectran tubes, a reinforced floor, heavy duty spray skirt, heavy duty seat, foot brace, knee cups, back-band, and inflatable hip pads. Whether you’re a skilled boater on an adventure or you need a travel boat when a kayak won’t work, the Alpackalypse is ready for you. [Purchase]
