A packraft can be carried in a backpack!  This extremely compact packraft will enable you to enjoy your hikes in a whole new way, travelling along a calm class 1 river, or across a lake: Create your own tailor-made adventure.

MRS Barracuda R2 - 2 person packraft

The Barracuda R2 is a serious performance packraft for two people which follows the key packraft USP given its high durability, light weight and packability. It has an extended waterline with a shape which helps quicker paddling and improved tracking. Unlike most other packrafts on the market, it includes a skeg for much improved tracking, efficiency and speed. It achieves all this despite being only c.20% heavier than the MRS Adventure X2. It is the fastest packraft around which makes it ideal for longer distance paddling, suitable for calm coastal adventures, lakes and rivers - the ideal tourer! 

This packraft model was the fastest packraft out of all types in the Nordic Islands Adventure Race (NIAR), paddled by the Swedish Hamilton Adventure Team. 

Take it with you on your couples holiday, with a friend or your dog. Take it fishing, enjoy the scenery - just explore! Then when you are done for the day, simply deflate, roll up and put into your bag. 

The MRS Barracuda R2 comes with an optional removable spray deck to keep off the spray or to paddle like open-top canoe. The speed you can paddle this packraft is somewhat of a revelation in packrafts, which with their generally upturned bows and lack of a skeg are not known for their speed and ease of tracking. No such problems for the MRS Barracuda R2 which both tracks well and is fast! 

The Barracuda R2 is designed for two people (but can be used solo) and excels in the following areas;

  • Long distance paddling
  • Adventure competitions 
  • Whitewater canoeing
  • Remote explorations
  • Recreation paddling
  • Fishing and hunting

The boat can be used on lakes, rivers, open white water and sheltered ocean bays. It is the perfect small, light and packable leisure accessory for your next holiday adventure wherever that may be.
