2020 Kokopelli Rogue Lite Packraft
If you are someone who doesn’t want to choose which mode of adventure-transportation gets left at home, the ultra-lite and durable Rogue-lite is your packraft. Light enough to go anywhere, the versatility of the Rogue-lite makes it a perfect addition to your outdoor adventures.
We’ve engineered this ultra-lite boat to be packed with features like our first-in-class DuPontTM Kevlar® Aramid-Nylon Blend* floor system, Mil-Spec Webbing D-Rings for strapping down gear, and optional TiZip storage compartment.
As the foremost minimalist packraft, the Rogue-Lite weighs only 5.2lbs (2.3kgs) and packs down to the size of a paper towel roll. Rated up to Class I rivers with our first-in-class 210d DuPontTM Kevlar® Aramid-Nylon Blend* reinforced floor system, giving you increased durability on the water. It’s ideal for backpacking, adventure-travel, high-alpine fishing, and bikepacking.

New for 2020
The Rogue-lite has several exciting updates for 2020, check them out in detail below!
- External D-Rings changed from 0.75in (1.9cm) Nylon Webbing to 1in (2.5cm) Mil-Spec Webbing. Changed across all 2020 boats to improve durability over the life of the d-ring and increase the strength of the d-ring for attaching heavier loads.
- Compression Straps changed from 0.75in (1.9cm) Nylon Webbing to 1in (2.5cm) Mil-Spec Webbing.
CONSTRUCTION & MATERIAL
The Rogue-lite features our 210d TPU-Nylon sidewalls and proprietary 210d DuPontTM Kevlar® Aramid-Nylon Blend* floor system. The seams are first stitched and then welded with double-reinforced 1in (2.5cm) wide seam tape. Additionally, the pontoon-to-floor attachment point is glued to the sidewall and then reinforced with v-seam tape around the entire interior of the packraft.
The 4in (10.2cm) thick Inflatable Seat is made from 210d Diamond-Ripstop Nylon and uses a Stem Valve. This keeps you comfortable and improves paddling position which allows for deeper, more efficient paddle strokes.
For the main pontoon, the Rogue-lite features a Leafield D7 valve, the most durable valve on the planet. The same valve as used in all full-size rafts, the Leafield is made from roto-molded plastic and is threaded and screwed together, not welded or glued. Meaning your valve will never come un-welded or fall apart. The Leafield D7 also easily integrates with the Packraft Pump or our Inflation Tube, and the Inflation Bag.
SHAPE & DESIGN
The Rogue-lite features a moderate trim, slight rocker on the bow, and a large-volume stern which gives it great Flat Water, Lakes – Class 1 handling capability and stability. Combined with the extra-large 12in (30cm) diameter pontoons and higher floor-to-sidewall attachment point, the Rogue-lite is perfect for ultralight multi-day trips.
This open or “bucket” packraft helps paddlers minimize weight and shortens setup time while making jumping in and out of the packraft easy.
NOTE: The Rogue-lite does not come with a EVA Backband or the attachment points for it, but leaning (chilling) against the stern keeps you comfortable during your paddle.
There are four strategically placed 1in (2.5cm) Mil-Spec Webbing D-Rings on the front of the packraft. Securely store your gear with our Animas River Bag or Delta Deck Pack or attach a bike to the bow.
NOTE: Always follow the Clean Lines Principles.
Do you need more storage space? Add our 21in (53cm) TiZip, an airtight watertight zipper, to increase storage space and give you access to the inside of your packraft pontoons. The TiZip compartment storage is perfect for protecting your gear and keeping centre of gravity low.
