We believe that nature should be experienced in its purest form, that power lies in those waters no matter how fast they move, that wilderness feeds the soul. And we want to help you get in deeper. That's what Kokopelli Packraft is all about: the sense of awe that comes from immersion and nowhere else. Whether it is hiking into an alpine lake to fish, rappelling into a canyon to paddle out, or floating down a remote backcountry river, having the most durable and lightweight gear is more than a tool, its the key.
We founded Kokopelli Packraft out of a garage in Denver, Colorado with the dream of designing and creating products unlike anything else out there. And every time we launch a new piece of equipment, we are amazed at how our community uses it to chase that wilderness awe all around the world. Our latest project is the Rogue, an ultra-lightweight, one-person, inflatable raft that is exceptionally durable, packs small, and opens doors that were once locked by terrain and the limitations of gear. When your path seems to dead-end into water, the Rogue is the way.
To seek nature in its purest form is to chase the boundaries of what is known. The new Rogue Packraft will give you the comfort, security, and confidence to find what you seek.
We want to help grow the sport of packrafting and make people more aware of the capabilities of the packraft. This project involved creating an ultra-lightweigh, one-person, inflatable raft that is durable enough to handle lakes and rivers but can also be easily packed into your backpack or on the front of your handlebars. We have been designing the Rogue packraft for over a year focusing on every detail including material selection, d-ring placement, and hull design. The result is high product performance and paddling comfort mixed with ease of setup and use. We need your help taking our product design and testing to get the Rogue packraft into full production.
In the Press
Kokopelli products have received recognition from industry-leading press and media. Our prior packrafts received awards from Gear Junkie and ISPO Brand New. However, we believe the Rogue will be our best packraft yet.

Risks and challenges
As with every product design and production type project there are certain types of risks involved. With our experience in launching and bringing to life other products in our company, we feel we have the knowledge and resources to accomplish this goal on time with a high quality result.
Timing Risk: With lead times associated with procurement of materials and shipping time there is potential for delays in the delivery of rewards. However, we plan to mitigate these risks by planning material sourcing in advance, during, and after the campaign to execute the project on time. We have also built in contingency time in order to minimize any delay if something were to slow down the project.
Manufacturing Risk: We have manufactured similar products and have completed prototypes of the current Rogue-lite and Rogue models. Based on our experience with each we have full confidence that the project can realistically be completed within our timeframe and delivered successfully to our backers. Thank you for your confidence.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
