    That would totally rock for Zion Canyoneering!
    I would be leery of a hook in that though.
    Thanks for the link, very cool.
    I remember Chouinard equipment (climbing gear) sold a super light raft in the 80's but I havent seen one since.

    Wow! That's lighter than my Curtis raft, and the price isn't that much more than I paid over 20 years ago. Looks like a good deal for high lake use.

    I saw a prototype of this raft last summer and I was very impressed. The cool part is that it was made from only two pieces of fabric (top and bottom, rather than a bunch of pieces cut and welded together. Klymit perfected this type of design and technology on their sleeping pads and when they applied it to the boat, it looked awesome. I can't wait to try one!
