The Packraft Handbook signed edition
Winner! 2021 National Outdoor Book Award in Outdoor Adventure Guides
Winner! 2022 Banff Mountain Book Competition Guidebook
The Packraft Handbook is the definitive instructional resource for packrafting—everything you need to know to begin, improve, or assist others. Caring, curiosity, and intentional practice will help you anticipate what might go wrong and how to react when it does.
This book is to the burgeoning and exciting sport of packrafting what “Freedom of the Hills” has long been for mountaineering: a foundational tome, an encyclopedic body of knowledge for beginners and experts alike, a book that will surely stand the test of time. Compelling writing, excellent photography, and superb illustrations combine to make this an exceptional guidebook. Most importantly, it is a treatise on risk taking and risk assessment. It is not an exaggerated claim to say that this book will actually save lives.
