These are freaking amazing boats. I have one that I regularly take down class 4+ rivers that are filled with boulders. They are super tough and very friendly in the water. Guarantee you wont regret this purchase. If possible id try find a place to try the different sizes, and id reccomend going with a reeal alpaca, not the scout, and not the NRS packraft. it will have a better resale value. these hold resale value really well. they are pretty popular in alaska but you dont see them too many other places.
