Anfibio Nano RTC
When ultra-lightweight equipment and high transport capacity are equally important, the Nano RTC is the packraft of choice. Because the pocket-sized boat offers:
- Super-light design thanks to special construction and use of high-quality materials
- RTC integrated luggage compartment with generous storage space even for multi-day paddling trips
- Minimal pack size and weight for trekking tours and other adventures
RTC stands for tube integrated Roll Top Closure at one end of the packraft, which can be used to open and close the tube of the boat. This makes it possible to transport luggage inside the boat. The specially developed technology uses special materials to ensure that the roll closure is reliably sealed and thus enables even extended tours without any loss of pressure! The RTC is not comparable with the usual roll fasteners of simple luggage bags!
As with other luggage systems inside the boat tubes, the entire interior of the Packraft can be used as storage space. The insensitive system of the RTC guarantees easy and fast handling. The luggage compartment not only provides increased load capacity but also a lower centre of gravity and allows luggage to be transported protected from the wet.
The interior tube contains a loop to secure gear.
The amazingly low weight is principally achieved by the Nano RTC’s special construction. The entire boat is made from just three sections of fabric (conventional packrafts use up to 11 panels). This is made possible by form of the hull with horizontally arranged seams and direct fabric welding, eliminating the need for seam tape.
The floor and side walls of the hull are made from durable 210D nylon with the airtight PU coating applied to the interior surface. This increases tear resistance and leaves the coating untouched by mechanical stress from the outside. This groundbreaking construction archives considerable weight savings which preserving a high ratio of robustness to total weight.
Despite its low weight and special design features, the Nano RTC still has a real packraft feeling. One of the reasons for this is the typical shape of the Nano RTC. The voluminous bow and stern provide more buoyancy at for both paddler and payloads. If the roll closure is not rolled up to the last wrap, the boat can be additionally extended to provide either more buoyancy or storage space. The seating position can then be selected at the long or short end as required.
The Nano RTC still features six grab loops (one inside the tube) for securely lashing down baggage or a DeckPack, as well as a loop for fastening the optional seat.
The Nano RTC features high manufacturing quality, evident from the cleanly trimmed and welded seams. This special construction results in a taught and slightly raised floor which makes it usable either without, or with a basic seat (such as sleeping mats). For longer periods on the water the optional seat is recommended as a comfort plus (it makes a great camp cushion or sleeping pillow too). With a inner length of 120cm, the Nano RTC fits paddlers up to 1.90m tall.
Whether for ultralight adventures and trekking tours with unavoidable river crossings, extended treks in mixed terrain, or other hobbies such as fishing, geocaching or just a weekend trip to a beautiful lake, the Nano RTC takes no space in your backpack but is more than just boat for short river crossings. It is mainly used on lakes and calm flowing waters. Due to its minimal weight and tiny packed size, it makes a handy backup boat or emergency raft for other water-borne pursuits, but at the same time offers enough space to stow your luggage during the journey. Of course it’s also suitable as a children’s boat and can be quickly repacked if not used. Other suggested uses include:
• Trekking, Islandeering, Wildswimming
• Expeditions and adventure races
• Canyoning and cave tours
• Urban packrafting, Geocaching
• Familiy adventures, child play
When closing the roll-top closure, care must be taken to ensure that it is wound as wrinkle-free as possible to ensure tightness. In principle, the Roll Top Closure is not intended to fill the boat with air, but it can be used as a support if the wind is strong enough. Normally the boat is inflated with the supplied nylon air bag. In the unlikely event of damage, we recommend the Anfibio LifePatch for repairs in the field in just a few minutes. Small perforations can also be treated with a blob of Stormsure sealant.
