MRS Nomad Fishing / Hunting Edition
Note that the pictures have not yet been updated with Dual ISS. We are working on developing new product photos.
MRS Nomad Fishing / Hunting Edition is the ultimate tool for longer paddling distances, or when you have planned on sitting in the packraft for an extended period of time, usually when fishing or hunting.
MRS Nomad is, with its long, narrow shape and extended waterline the fastest packraft available. Because of the extended length, a footpump is included to reach enough air pressure for the packraft to hold shape.
Why is this version more suitable for fishing or hunting?
To start with, it is easier to fish and hunt when there are no spraydeck that get in your way. This is an open canoe. For the spraydeck version, check out MRS Nomad S1D.
This version is also extra long, compared to the normal Nomad. Extra space for storing your stuff, thats is.
The Nomad Fishing ed. is also equipped with Dual ISS (internal storage system). On both sides of the seat you’ll find a watertight zipper known as TiZip. If you open it, you can store things inside the tubes! This is of course great for anglers and hunters, because they dont want their whole boat filed with stuff, except for their fishing and hunting gear. The rest can be stored inside the tubes of the boat.
Double ISS also acts as an extra safety; your packraft now has 3 chambers as opposed to the normal one chamber.
MRS uses TiZips best zipper, Masterseal 10. It is pressure proof up to 500 mbar, which means it is totally safe, completely waterproof and airtight.
ISS main advantages are:
- You can store a lot of gear inside the packraft
- The things you store within ISS will always remain dry.
- Lower point of gravity makes for a more comfortable and stable ride.
- More space where you need it, e.g. where you sit.
The main disadvantage of the system is that you cannot access the gear stored inside of the ISS without letting the air out of the packraft. That is why we recommend the ISS for storing camp-related things, such as tents, sleeping bags, spare clothes, water and food for the days to come.
MRS Nomad Fishing / Hunting Edition has a removable and adjustable backrest, which makes the packraft well suited for paddlers of different lengths.
MRS Nomad packrafts are the only packrafts from MRS with an integrated and removable fin, for better tracking and improved speed. The fin is only recommended for use where there are no risks of hitting the bottom.
We recommend that you add a Patch n’ go repair kit to your order.
