GET PUMPED

AD­VEN­TURE PAD­DLE­BOARD­ING IN­FLAT­ABLE SUP Ideal for trav­ellers with lim­ited stor­age, this 10’2" SUP board – along with hand-pump, re­mov­able fin and re­pair patch – packs into a bag with an all-in weight of 9.5kg. It em­ploys sin­gle-layer construction to de­crease weight, while re­tain­ing am­ple width and sur­face area through the mid-zone to ensure sta­bil­ity and ease of pad­dling.

FISH­ING FOR AT­TEN­TION

BLACKFOOT AN­GLER XL This 3.9-m fish­ing kayak is per­fect for two pad­dlers or one an­gler with plenty of room for gear. Made from com­mer­cial-grade, smooth-skin Du­ra­tex, it of­fers great track­ing and glide, and is even sta­ble enough to stand up in. Front and rear spray guards keep pad­dlers dry, and a hand­ful of tie-downs pro­vide stowage for dry bags and gear.

SLEEP ON A CLOUD

TNH OUT­DOORS DUAL CHAM­BER SLEEP­ING PAD Bumps and un­even sur­faces will go un­no­ticed with this self-in­flat­ing sleep­ing pad. In­fla­tion starts once it’s un­rolled and the plas­tic valve is twisted open. Add a few ex­tra puffs of air to guar­an­tee it’s op­ti­mally plump. The pad is made of high-den­sity poly­eth­yl­ene rather than en­vi­ron­men­tally dam­ag­ing PVC.

BIG AIR

BCA FLOAT 42 AVALANCHE AIRBAG This 150L airbag prom­ises pro-level head and neck trauma pro­tec­tion, cre­at­ing buoy­ancy in even the big­gest slides. The pack has am­ple space for win­ter back­coun­try tools, first-aid kit, glacier equip­ment and sup­plies nec­es­sary for a multi-day trip. All straps are hy­dra­tion-com­pat­i­ble and the airbag sys­tem is re­mov­able.

FLOATS YOUR BOAT

KOKOPELLI NIR­VANA PACKRAFT The 2018 ver­sion of this light­weight, en­closed white­wa­ter kayak with spray deck and skirt is now equipped with in­te­grated stor­age op­tions and up­graded mil­i­tary valves. Weigh­ing 4.4kg, this 2.3-m boat uses a 28-cm tube for sta­bil­ity, ny­lon D-rings for gear tie-downs and ex­tra four D-rings on the in­ner tube for op­tional thigh straps.

GO WITH THE BLOW

JP EXPLORAIR This in­flat­able wind­surf board boasts the width and vol­ume for a sta­ble ride for be­gin­ners, while the cen­tre fin prom­ises di­rec­tional sta­bil­ity and in­creased lift for head­ing up­wind. The large plan­ning area helps push ad­vanced rid­ers onto a plane early and eas­ily, and all will find the re­in­forced side­walls lend a sur­pris­ing amount of rigid­ity.
