The Packer is a delight to paddle. Its responsiveness will invite you to paddle even when you don’t have a destination in mind. The Packer is designed for the paddler to sit. With an adjustable footbrace and plastic molded tractor-style seat the need for a kneeling paddling position is eliminated – your knees and back will thank you.
The canoe tracks well and yet it is quick to turn when leaned on its side. The Packer is suited for a wide range of paddlers, from 50 lbs to 240 lbs. When the total load is kept under 400 lbs, the Packer performs nicely as a medium duty tripping canoe. Options include a removeable portage yoke and foam thigh pads.
“Took my Packer on a week long solo canoe trip this past summer. Pretty much just me and the Northwest Ontario bush. The boat performed flawlessly”
“Got my kevlar 14' Clipper solo canoe before winter came suddenly last November in Kamloops.
So with ice off, I have been to most lakes in my area.I love this light little canoe (34 #) so much.
It's a breeze to lift(and I am 80 yrs old).It tracks beautifully.
It holds plenty of gear when I do several overnighters in bush sites along lakeshores.
