Looking to find out if there are people here in Malaysia into the sport of Packrafting?

Its a relatively new sport in the world but it truly caters to those adventurous at heart or simply want a weekend of adventure in the water.

What is a packraft?
Packraft and trail boat are colloquial terms for a small, portable inflatable boat designed for use in all bodies of water, including technical whitewater and ocean bays and fjords. A packraft is designed to be light enough to be carried for extended distances. How light can it be? A packraft can weigh as little as 2kg and when folded it is the size of a kitchen towel roll. The contruction of packrafts are what sets it aside from conventional inflatable boats. Packrafts are made up of 210 Denier Nylon at least with some going as high as 800D nylon and Kevlar reinforced floors. Why this is attractive is because packraft can be packed into your backpack and brought anywhere. Whats more, the raft itself can handle your weight as well as your bicycle on top of it to cross bodies or water.

wow .. mind sharing where is the camp site? mind sharing the coordinate please

Sorry. Can't share in public.

Cause

1) It is a private land and not an actual camp site. It prohibited from enter and sometime police block it.

2) Don't want to polluted the place. We here still have alot of people throwing rubbish everywhere.

Yup. Probably 12-17°C.

Not just cold. The wind blow nonstop whole day.

And rain storm.

So the tent have to be strong.

Sometimes just sleep in the car.

Normally I bring a comforter and sleeping bag rate at 15°c. With the air mattress underneath, it cosy enough. Or sleep in the car with it.

Just that when you walk outside with windstorm, shivering. Got to wear winter jacket.

You haven't try camp ontop mountain with 0°C below. That is more fun.

I think I know which you talking about. If you're coming from serendah toward Batang Kali, it's on the right side?

People Park at the side of the road and go fishing there. I've checked it out but haven't kayak there.

Not yet. The ones available here are the usual blow up type or from decathlon. If you're looking for these packraft like these then have to order from USA.
