Other things to note:

It is highly recommend to practice your heat sealing technique before attempting to make one of our DIY Packraft Deluxe Kits.

Our heat sealable fabric can be purchased from our shop by the metre to practice with and give you the confidence to begin heat sealing.

We offer no instructional guidelines on the optional luggage attachment strap plates. We supply an off-cut of the 420D black material which can then be cut to make 4 extremely basic circular strap plates approximately 6.5 cm in diameter.

The basic circular strap plates can be made by cutting a circular piece of the fabric and then cutting two slits into it to create a ‘loop’.

Alternatively, aftermarket attachment loops/ packraft tie-downs/ strap plates can be purchased from several well know packraft manufacturers and glued onto the tubes with an appropriate adhesive.

Due to the manufacturing process, the TPU surface may show streaking. Although, this does not affect the performance of the product.

Additionally all fabric pieces are hand cut and may require minor alterations throughout assembly.

All instructional material is available on the IRON RAFT website and no physical instructions are included in the DIY Packraft Deluxe Kit.
