The Nirvana Self-Bailing is staying the same for the 2019 paddling season besides the launch of our new 3-Point Thigh-Strap system and new Inflatable Floor with Integrated Seat. The new thigh-strap system is easier to use and more responsive than ever before. Thigh-Straps allow for a more responsive handling whether you are carving into an eddy, surfing a wave or even rolling your packraft. The 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit is sold separately here. Additionally, we have changed the material of the Inflatable Floor with Integrated Seat to our 210d Diamond-Ripstop Nylon, the overall shape of the floor, and increased the seat section thickness from 7 in (17.8 cm) to 8 in (20.3 cm) thick while the front portion of the floor is remains 4 in (10.2 cm) thick.
We offer the Nirvana Series with the optional Tizip zipper which gives you access to store gear inside the pontoons of your packraft. There are 2 d-rings placed inside the cargo area for attaching our Delta Internal Inflatable Dry Bags. The length of the Tizip zipper is 19" to allow easy access for bigger bags. The Nirvana Self-Bailing uses the Leafield D7 valve, the highest quality raft valves on the market.
The Nirvana Self-Bailing has all of the same attributes of the Nirvana with spraydeck, narrow trim, aggressive rocker on the bow, which give it great whitewater handling capability. However, instead of the spraydeck to keep water out, we have introduced drain holes in the floor system and removed the spraydeck which allows water to drain through the floor when it enters the packraft.
The advantages of a self-bailer over a spraydeck include quick entry and exit of the craft to scout rapids, the elimination to pull over to the side of the river to empty water out of your packraft, and a higher paddling position to allow deeper more efficient paddle strokes. We recommend use of a wetsuit or drysuit (depending on temperature) when using self-bailing packrafts due to water coming in and out of the packraft.
Finally, the Nirvana Series includes Thigh-Strap System which provide the option to attach 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit. Thigh-Straps allow for a more responsive handling whether you are carving into an eddy, surfing a wave or even rolling your packraft. The 3-Point Thigh-Strap Kit is sold separately here.

The Whitewater Series was designed with the whitewater enthusiast in mind. The narrower trim allows for a more fluid carve into and out of eddies while the increased rocker makes surfing your favorite hole that much easier. Whitewater Series packrafts are two chambered, have extra thick floor and sidewall material, and extra floor reinforcement on the sidewalls. They also feature our 3-Point Thigh-Strap system (3-Point Thigh Strap Kit not included).
