Classic Series- Cruiser Spray Skirt (Small, Medium, Large)

From: $25.00

The Classic keeps it simple with our adventure tested Classic Hull, a no fuss seating system, minimalist attachments, and bombproof materials and construction. This is the cruiser spray skirt option.  The spray skirt velcros along the left side of the raft and then around your waist when seated.  You can easily un-velcro the side for getting in and out.  You can also un-zip part of the skirt, rolling it up to the attached part of the deck on the nose.  The attached deck at the nose is the best place to strap your pack to.  This is probably the best option for trips where you know you won’t constantly be in whitewater, but you’re not exactly sure what to expect.  It covers your bases.  The classics are capable of up to class III whitewater although if you’re planning on doing primarily whitewater, you might want to consider renting an Expedition or Gnarwhal.

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.  Generally the Small (Alpacka) will fit rafters 5’8″ and under, Medium (Yak) will fit rafters 5’8″ to 6′ and Large (Llama) will fit rafters 6′ to 6’4″.  Rafters over 6’4″ should check out the Mule (size XL)
