MRS Microraft

The packraft with either a fixed or fully removable spraydeck and different sizes. Good workmenship, robust material and fair value. Also available with Internal Storage System (ISS).


The compact Microraft is a real ‘land and water’ packraft: light enough to carry and well suited to traversing mountain lakes and fjords. Go geocaching, fishing and hunting. It excels on river walks and is also capable of whitewater.

  • excellent workmanship (sewn and welded seams, taped floor)
  • a high level of equipment (grab loops, seat/backrest, one way valve)
  • robust and flexible fabric - see info below
  • well-proven shape with the typical elongated stern
  • part of the MRS StreamlineS 
  • also available with Internal Storage System (ISS)
Choice of spraydeck
  
The Microraft is available with a fixed (size L/XL) or completely removable (size L/XL and size S/M) spraydeck. Spraydecks come in hany against rain, cold, splashing water and waves. It is a must in real white water. With choice of the spraydeck the dimensions and the character of the boats also differ.
 
Version with hatch and skirt (fixed spraydeck)
 
The deck is equipped with a cockpit which houses highly flexible poles that form the coaming rim. The skirt worn by the paddler is secured over the rim. The spraydeck in the style of a kayak is our favourite, because it has many advantages. The fully enclosed boat responds more like a kayak, without losing any of its versatility. The hatch/cockpit is very large and 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 closes securely while opening effortlessly and reliably when you need to bail fast.
 
This type of spraydeck is available in size L/XL.
  
Version with velcro and zipper (removable spraydeck)
 
The removable deck is attached to the boat on three sides with a zipper. On the left side it is closed with a Velcro fastener and sealed to the body with an elastic band. It can also be completely removed if necessary. The inflatable bib prevents the accumulation of water in the lap.
This type of spraydeck is a more comfortable to open and close. It is not 100% leak proof, but it is adequate in moderate conditions. The inflatable ‘cod piece’ eliminates water pooling in the lap. The Velcro fastener is susceptible to soiling. But it is often perceived as less technical and more flexible because the fixed frame can be dispensed with in this case. Without any coaming the boat assembles and packs faster. It is good for a relaxed paddling style.
 
 This type of spraydeck is available in size L/XL and S/M.
 
Choice of size
 
The MRS Microraft is available in two sizes:
 
Large/Extratra Large (fixed or removable spraydeck): inner dimension: 36cm/130cm, 30cm tube diameter, up to 195cm height
Small/Medium (removable spraydeck): inner dimension: 32cm/124cm, 25cm tube diameter, up to 180cm height 
  
In the standard size L/XL, the additional width in the inner and outer dimensions makes itself felt in a more comfortable or capsize-safe (forgiving) paddleing behaviour. The inside width can be used over the entire length of 130cm (incl. footwell) due to parallel side tubes. This also makes it suitable for larger, heavier persons and/or for bigger water. For this reason, thigh straps are not installed.
For very small/light people, the S/M size is suitable, with a narrower inner width and shorter inner length for good boat control. In addition, the saved material reduces the packing size and total weight of the boat.
 
Material
 
Like all Packrafts the MRS Mircoraft is made from urethan coated nylon, not PVC or Hypalon. As such being light, abrasion resistance, UV tolerant, non-aging and flexible at low temperatures.
 
However, it has a special treatment for with smooth, scratch resistant surface finish and asymmetric coating (inner thinner than the outside). This creates a supple material for easy packing. Classified as technical (T)PU, including thermoplastic and other coating processes. Reparability (LifePatch, Stormsure, Helaplast or adding attachment loops is the same as similar fabrics.

"The Packrafting Store has provided a great website and service. And postage only been 9€ to reach the outer Hebrides in Scotland was a relief and a credit to the store to ship my Microraft to me at such low cost. I was a little anxious on receiving my boat as never seeing the product. I was well impressed with the workmanship and quality of the rafts build.  Having been a sea kayaker and surf kayaker for 17 years and outdoor experience of 30 I've had my little boat packed with up to 5 days food and equipment making journey of up to 6 NM offshore in 2 meter swells including punching surf and winds of up to force 7 this little boat has performed perfectly. And am looking forward to many more journeys in my Microraft including bike rafting as the L/XL model can carry loads of 150 kg." Bennie Macdonald, Scotland

Evaluation:  5 of 5 Stars!

berrascht war ich nicht wirklich ber die Robustheit des MRS, war ich doch schon mit einem geliehenen Packraft auf der Isar unterwegs.

Nun habe ich endlich ein Eigenes und ich reue nicht, dass ich doch etwas tiefer in den Geldbeutel greifen musste.

Robustheit, Verarbeitung und der nette Kontakt und Service vom packrafting-store sind fr mich ein Haufen guter Grnde gewesen.
Nun habe ich schon einige Touren gemacht und werde bis Juni das ein oder andere Gewsser erkunden. Das geringe Gewicht und Packmass macht es einfach. Am 23 Juni 2019 geht es dann nach Island zum Vatnajkull um die dortigen Gletscherlagunen zu befahren.
Wird bei mir auf Youtube erscheinen.

Ich kann dieses Boot als Allrounder nur empfehlen. Besonders mag ich die Spritzschutzdecke die Wasser abhlt, (Tropft ja immer etwas vom Paddel)
aber auch bei kalter Umgebung warm hlt. Der Sitz wrmt auch im kalten Gewsser ausreichend.
Eine Paddelsicherung ist sinnvoll.
Hier ein kurzes Video von mir. Ein Review und Touren mit dem Raft folgen.
