RuckRaft® from Above Below
RuckRaft® from Above Below is a simple, two-piece kit to transform your rucksack (of any size) into a raft to tow across water. Simple and effective. It works. Purpose built to carry anything, anywhere.
The streamline design and superior buoyancy means your RuckRaft® glides across the water, even when fully loaded with 15kg of gear. And it’s zip free – zips will degrade quickly around seawater, sand and grit. So we don’t use any. It’s made in the UK and patented around the world.
