The Ranger- One Person- Big Loads

From: $55.00

New from Alpacka for 2021 the Ranger is the ultimate cargo carrying one person raft!  Dogs, kids, bikes or big game animals this thing is made to haul!  It’s also a great option for taller paddlers that want to do more intense whitewater in a self bailer!  The larger hull gives it extra buoyancy when carrying heavy loads and the larger tubes allow for extra storage inside the tubes using the T-Zip internal storage.  The self bailing floor makes for easy exit/entry but the extra lift of the paddler seat means you won’t be sitting in water while you paddle.  If you’re looking with a little extra payload capacity than the Mule and more whitewater capability than the Explorer 42 this is the ticket!

If the raft you want isn’t available for your desired dates, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly as it may be an error in our system. Contact info: 406-272-6468

A solo version of the Forager which fits right in between the Mule and Forager for size. An excellent option for carrying extra weight, paddling with a dog or kid, and hunting.  Despite its large size, the Ranger packs
small and light enough to backpack over moderate distances.  It is very capable of up to Class III whitewater so its a great option if you want a bigger self bailer to do more intense rapids!

  • 12.4-inch Cargo Hull (classics are 11.7-inch)
  • Self bailing floor with paddler seat standard
  • Includes carrying handles and multiple tie down points standard
  • Cargo Fly standard | XL  Dry Bags are $3/day extra

While similar to the Explorer 42 in many ways, the hull and tube size of the Ranger are game changers when hauling heavier loads increasing buoyancy and stability in the water and therefore is more whitewater capable when paddled as a single person, even if you’re carrying a big load.

When in Doubt, Contact Us About Availability

Because of the variability in transit days our business model creates unique challenges for booking software and makes it difficult to display a 100% accurate availability calendar.  If the raft you want isn’t available for your desired dates, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly as it may be an error in our system.  In many cases we can also ship the day after you book and override the default 6 day transit buffer.  We highly recommend contacting us directly for groups of 4 or more as well.  Contact info: 406-272-6468
