When Aaron Locander started exploring the Grand Canyon, he needed a boat light enough to carry, but durable enough to cross the Colorado River. His trial and error lead to creating Supai Adventure Gear, with his wife Shannon Flowers.
The Supai packraft, called the Canyon Flatwater 2, condenses down to the size of a Nalgene water bottle and weighs only 1.5 pounds, making it perfect for hauling in on camping and hiking trips as a way to relax and enjoy high mountain lakes, or to use for exiting canyoneering adventures.
Aaron and Shannon make each Supai boat themselves in Arizona, ensuring quality every step of the way. In addition to Supai's signature Canyon Flatwater 2, the company also makes an innovative and ultralight 4-piece paddle that weighs a mere 12 ounces. And they offer a burlier packraft option called the Matkat.
