@REI-JohnJ@REI-TaylorH - thank you for the tip! This may be just the solution! I did not know REI had a section for inflatable rafts, and looking through the other options, the Packraft may be the stand-out product for backpacking due to weight. The Advanced Elements option might be the avenue I pursue due to cost, although the Kokopelli is appealing due to durability.

 

Thanks!
