March 30, 2022

Colorado Company’s Toughest, Durable and Most Versatile Boats are Back on the Market

Boulder, CO (March 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – KOKOPELLI, the Colorado-based creators of lightweight and packable inflatable packrafts, has brought back their popular full kevlar x-series packrafts. Available again with a re-launch of the Nirvana Self-Bailing X and Rogue-Lite X, continuing to push boundaries of what a high performance packraft can do.

Designed as packrafts that can do it all, the x-series boats give you the best of both worlds, being stronger than their TPU constructed packrafts and lighter than the PVC ones, while additionally adding the same bombproof DuPont Kevlar used for the flooring into the sidewalls for increased durability, rigidity and strength. Building on an already dynamic platform, Kokopelli has also included Leafield D7 valves, which are used on most commercial whitewater rafts, and an automatic pressure relief valve to ensure proper PSI is ideal no matter where you take your boat.

The feature rich x-series packs are designed to go the distance, the company has given buyers the option to add TiZip storage to these boats which allows for inner pontoon access in order to keep all your essential gear dry for multi-day trips while you paddle. The Rogue-Lite X compresses down to the size of a paper towel roll, being best for lakes, oceans and class I rivers, while the workhorse Nirvana Self-Bailing X can roll into the size of a sleeping bag with class I-IV rating on rivers. The x-series boats help users move light and fast while allowing them to trust the durability of their boat on their backpacking, bikepacking, hunting, high-alpine fishing

trip or whenever your adventure takes you on the river.

“The X-series boats truly elevate packrafts to a whole new level. Never before has there been such a perfect mix of durability, packability and performance in a lightweight package,” said Kokopelli General Manager Jeff Popp. With these boats you get similar durability to a hard-shell kayak at a fraction of the weight. The added ability to pack it and take it places you’d never be able to take a kayak is icing on the cake.”

The x-series boats from Kokopelli show durability doesn’t need to be compromised for packability. The D7 valves on these boats also include a lifetime warranty while the TiZip zipper includes a one-year warranty for when your adventures get rowdier than expected.

“As a whitewater kayaker, this is the closest performance to a traditional hard shell I’ve ever experienced, and I can put it in my backpack,” said Zach Patterson of Kokopelli.
