MRS Microraft

MRS Microraft  is a packraft well suited for hiking, fishing, geocaching or just paddling! It’s a lightweight and durable allrounder.

MRS Microraft got sewn and heat-welded seams and all of MRS packraft is made out of urethan coated nylon which is UV-resistant, durable, and flexible in low temperatures.

We strongly suggest that you add a Patch n’ Go Kit to your order, as it is not included.

Spraydeck

MRS Microraft is equipped with a “hybrid” spraydeck , a frame and a skirt. When needed, for example in dry or hot climate, the hybrid deck can be rolled and attached to the bow of the boat to create an open climate. If you paddle through wet environments or heavy rain, the hybrid spraydeck is easy to reattach, and will provide close to 100% waterproofness together with the frame and skirt. It will also protect against the cold.

Fin

The packraft is delivered with an installed (and removable) fin for better tracking and higher max speed.

Size

One size fits all. However, size can be adjusted with the help of an advanced footrest. This is especially useful for shorter paddlers.

Materials

Tubes: UPN35 Nylon 210D/67T*55T 90 A Ester TPU singlecoated.
Floor:UPN35 Nylon 420D/67T*55T 90 A Ester TPU singlecoated.
Seat: Nylon 210D/118T laminated.
Deck: 70D Ripstopnylon.

MRS are fully involved in the development process of the materials used, and has its own product development. The TPU material used exclusively by MRS is developed in close collaboration with a large American company with the aim of offering customers the highest possible quality.

ISS (Internal Storage System)

The packraft come preinstalled with the ISS (internal storage system) and two large drybags. ISS is essentially a TiZip zipper on the rear of the boat. You can use the zipper to store things inside the tubes of the packraft. This allows A LOT of geat to be brought on your adventures, without having to sacrifice space on the floor or bow of the boat.

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.

The packed size of the MRS Microraft is ~40x20cm.

Max load capacity

Large: 190 kg (419 pounds)

    I have a Medium-sized MRS Microraft and I have found it to be light and compact for multi-day hiking/paddling trips in the arctic. Robust, very well constructed. I’m quite impressed with the craftsmanship. For a basic packraft that has taken me on arctic rivers up to Class III, I’m very happy with my purchase. I like the versatility of this model, as I can use it on flatwater, lakes, and whitewater. For someone who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles (and extra weight) I highly recommend it. My only change would be to get a full length seat cushion for the floor, or put a small cushion in the bow to keep feet off the floor.

    This packraft is really a great all around little boat. With a weight of approximately 3kg it is light enough to carry on longer treks. The removable spraydeck keeps water away from your lap, although it is not completely leak proof. In the moderate whitewater I have paddled with this raft it has worked well in keeping me dry. Since this was the first packraft I have purchased I was a little cautious about their overall performance. Well, it didn’t take long to build a trusting relationship with this wilderness tool! Very sturdy and takes a quite lot of abuse so no need to worry about breaking it. But of course, remember to keep a repair kit with you.

    The loops on the bow and stern make it easy to attach gear onto the raft. A backpack on the bow balances the boat nicely when you paddle. I bought my raft mainly for wilderness hiking / kayaking trips, but have since used it for fishing and urban packrafting also. Overall, I have been very happy that after a long consideration (the price being the main factor) I finally bought it. Now it is an essential part of almost all trips I am planning and I have not regretted this purchase for a moment.

    MRS Microraft perform very well, not complaining about it.

    Feels very solid construction and it fills up very quickly,
    it only need 7 full bags of air to fill up the packraft.

    My choice was large size, i am 193 cm tall and there is still about 5-10 cm extra space left for my feet.

    I am very pleased with this choice, recommended.
