The Classic Series- Cruiser and Cargo Fly( Medium only)

From: $35.00

In response to the numerous requests for the cargo-fly option (zip open the stern and stick your stuff inside then inflate), we are offering a variation of the Classic Cruiser.  It is Alpacka’s Classic with a cruiser spray skirt and cargo fly for optimal versatility without adding a ton of weight.  Ideal for trips where you might hit a couple major rapids but don’t plan on continuous whitewater.  Please note, dry bags are included for the cargo fly.  We do book quickly if this is what you want and please check the availability tab below to make sure your size is still available.

The chart below shows our recommended size based on your sit length and the Classic’s fit profile. To determine your sit length, sit against a wall with your legs flat (wearing your preferred paddling shoes) and measure the distance from the wall to your heels. The Classic is sized for a relaxed fit, meaning that a typical paddler in the recommended size can fully extend their legs and not touch the bow unless they point their toes when sitting in the boat. You can size up or down for a more performance or relaxed fit.

*Weight includes all components except inflation bag, repair kit, and internal dry bags for Cargo Fly.
**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
