A packraft is an inflatable raft that is light and small enough to carry in a backpack. It is most often used by backpackers as a tool to help them cross terrain that includes rivers. The two types of lightweight packrafts available today are the Sevylor Trail Boat and the Alpacka packraft. The Trail Boat is lighter and much cheaper than Alpacka packrafts, but also significantly less sturdy.
