Materials and Production

All Norseraft Packrafts are handmade from TPU coated Nylon material, specifically manufactured to our requirements. The material is UV-resistant, abrasion-resistant, flexible at low temperatures, and in general just really tough. The tubes are made of 210D Nylon with a TPU coating on the outside. The floor is made of 420D Nylon with a TPU coating on both sides.

Norseraft Packrafts have seams that are both sewn and welded, making them stronger than the material itself. Each Packraft is handmade by skilled workers with state-of-the-art production equipment. Seams are taped where applicable to avoid leaks.

God, liten Packraft

En liten og lett packraft. Akkurat passelig til mitt bruk som er å "duppe" i små fjellvann. Har brukt den flere ganger i sommer. Perfekt. Var ikke forberedt på at den vngler litt fram og tilbake når jeg padler, men jeg skjønner hvorfor. Det er kun en vanesak og har ingen betydning. Lette,gode justerbare årer. Fornøyd!
