MRS Nomad (also known as Barracuda Solo) is, with its long, narrow shape and extended waterline, especially suited for fast long distance paddling in both calm waters and white water. The MRS Nomad is the fastest packraft in MRS’s fleet.
The centrally positioned seat and the symmetrical bow and stern is somewhat similar to a conventional kayak.
MRS Nomad is the ultimate packraft for solo paddling over long distances and during extended periods of time.
Spraydeck & equipment
MRS Nomad is equipped with a hybrid spraydeck (dual 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.
MRS Nomad has a removable and adjustable backrest, which makes the packraft well suited for paddlers of different lengths.
MRS Nomad and Barracuda series 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.
The Nomad S1D can be bought with the ISS2 internal storage system. The ISS2 makes it possible to store your gear inside the tubes of the packraft.
ISS2 main advantages are:
- You can store a lot of gear inside the packraft
- The things you store within ISS2 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 ISS2 without letting the air out of the packraft. That is why we recommend the ISS2 for storing camp-related things, such as tents, sleeping bags, spare clothes, water and food for the days to come.
Packing gear inside the packraft also makes it a bit harder to transport an inflated packraft longer distances on land.
