Alligator 2S Pro

The Pro version of the Alligator 2S with an advanced outfitting, unique design and special material. A packraft for demanding users, especially for guides, athletes and ambitious adventurers! Also available as oversize XXL.


Based on years of experience, numerous tests and many development steps, there is another flagship in the packraft world, the Alligator 2S Pro. 

A sporty yet versatile packraft for demanding use, especially for guides, professionals, sportsmen and ambitious adventurers! For experts, it is a reliable tool, for moderate use it offers fun and reserves and for everyone it is to feel comfortable!

The characteristics of the Alligator 2S Pro lie in the detail:

  • Tube material - 50% higher level of coating for extra robustness
  • Outfitting 1 - a new seat system for more comfort and performance
  • Outfitting 2 - standard with Internal Storage System (cargo zipper)
  • Outfitting 3 - ergonomically cut, fully adjustable 2x5 thigh straps
  • Own design - a classy combination of red seams on black segments
  • Available as oversize XXL (see details)

The general outfitting and geometry is otherwise identical to the tried and tested Alligator 2S! But if you can stand a little extra weight, this provides extra performance. Distinguish yourself! The Alligator 2S Pro is part of the MRS StreamlineSoptimization.

Shape and construction

The classy look comes from the narrow, tapering geometry based on 27-cm main tubes. We think this is the optimal tube size to combine the benefits of agility and nimbleness while retaining comfort and stability. 

The well-balanced rocker is especially refined, with a moderate bow upturn catching eddies effectively, while keeping the boat boof-able thanks to the small stern raise. The pointy, upswept nose climbs over or punches through waves.

A relatively long waterline provides good speed and acceleration, which is also a excellent touring characteristic. Its a real speedy packraft!

Internal rigging

A main feature in the Alligator 2S Pro's handling are the ergonomically cut 2x5-point thigh straps, which enclose the knee from two sides to provide excellent support. The straps are fully adjustable by four ladders and also removable.

The profiled seating and ergonomic backrest make a superior body position. Along with the boat’s close fit, the whole internal rigging helps it to responds and edge like a kayak, while still being easy to escape. 

The spray deck features a cockpit which houses flexible aluminium poles that form the coaming rim. The paddler’s spray skirt is secured over the rim. The spacious hatch/cockpit almost feels like an open boat, so can be enjoyed without a sprayskirt in calm or warm conditions. Then, when needed, the seal is absolutely leak proof and secure, while opening reliably and effortlessly when you need to bail out fast.

Size and fitting

At 126cm, the interior length suits users up to 195cm (XXL up to 200cm). If prefered, users can fit a spacer/foot brace such as an inflatable device, foam pad, strap (loops provided) or any other bag. Tall persons bear in mind the narrow foot box won’t be suited to big boots.

Additional hull pressure and stiffness can be achieved with a foot pump (besides inflating with a nylon bag), so there is no need for longside bracing (tension against the bow and stern for rigidity) for added response and control in whitewater. However, the boat also works fine at regular, bag pressures.

The Alligator 2S Pro features a snug fit. Technical boaters will like the superior hip connection to the boat which greatly improves performance and response, especially in whitewater. However, the narrow design runs well on calm water too. 

The Alligator 2S Pro is also available as oversize version (XXL). Especially suitable for larger and/or wider persons. Due to the higher volume also ideal for bigger water. Enjoy the forgiving character and faster hull. For details see specifications. 

Design and manufacturing

The Alligator 2S Pro is a co-development between Anfibio Packrafting and MRS (Micro Rafting System). Combined with MRS’s manufacturing expertise and fabric know-how, our years of packrafting experience helped refine the design of the final product.

Serial production takes place in the Far East with manufacturing carried out in small, hand-built batches. All products have an extended three-year warranty. 

All that is expressed by its unique design of red seam tapes on black segments! 

Material and repairability

The coating of the Nylon-tubes has an addtional layer urethane with higher degree of hardness. The floor features an Aramid fibre for exceptional tear resistance – partly cut fabric cannot be torn by hand. The excellent adhesive qualities of the TPU coating makes the boat extremely durable, enhanced by a special treatment for a smooth, scratch-resistant finish. Being light, UV-tolerant, non-ageing and flexible at low temperatures, this packraft is a lot tougher than its weight and packed size would suggest.

In the unlikely event of sustaining damage, repairs can be done in the field with LifePatch, which bonds to the urethane surface extremely well. Small pinholes can be sealed with Stormsure, a liquid urethane sealant. Just any major damage, should they happen, can be repaired with spare fabric and contact glue at home or in our workshop.

Full control by the internal rigging.

Relaxed and easy going by comfortabel outfitting.

Sporty character with pointy geometry.

Enjoyable calm water application included.

Pack size comparable with a sleeping bag.
