With the extra weight of packraft, paddle and buoyancy aid my pack weight was around 12kg. It was my first trip with my new Anfibio Ultimate paddle from www.packrafting-store.de. The 5-piece adjustable carbon paddle was a joy to use compared to my old plastic/alloy basic paddle. As well as being adjustable the extra stiffness was immediately noticeable, as was the 'catch'- how the paddle enters the water. The paddle also doubled up as a super-stiff and adjustable centre pole for my SL3 mid shelter. The dual-use theme continuing by using the packraft as a groundsheet in the tent and my inflatable Anfibio Buoy Boy buoyancy-aid helping with pillow duties.
