The PakCanoe 160 is considered by outfitters to be the best all-around canoe, with or without a load of gear. It can carry two people and all your gear for a two- to three-week wilderness trip. But the stability of this canoes’ thirty-seven inch beam width makes it a favorite even without a load in heavy whitewater or on large bodies of open water when wind and waves can be a deterrent. Pakboats folding canoes combine aluminum frames and a PVC coated polyester skin with inflatable tubes to provide a durable, flexible, and strong hull design– with efficient lines, rigidity, and flotation. Best of all, they pack small and travel light!
