“This is the book we’ve all been waiting for. It is both approachable for newcomers and deep enough to satisfy experts. I know that I will refer back to it often as I continue to develop my own skills.” – Joseph Bell, President, American Packrafting Association

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE GUIDES
The Packraft Handbook is a comprehensive guide to packrafting, with a strong emphasis on skill progression and safety. Readers will learn to maneuver through river features and open water, mitigate risk with trip planning and boat control, and react when things go wrong. Illustrated for visual learners and featuring stunning photography, The Packraft Handbook has something to offer all packrafters.
“This is it: the bible of packrafting! It has it all: comprehensive coverage, intelligent layout, eye-catching photography, first rate illustrations and color throughout. Author Luc Mehl’s breadth of experience clearly shows with coherent, step-by-step instructions and plenty of helpful tips. One of the book’s strong points is Mehl’s emphasis on safety. He returns to the safety angle again and again with the hope that his readers will keep it foremost in their minds. The package is complete with an abundance of Sarah Glaser’s clear and instructive illustrations which perfectly complement the text.” – National Outdoor Book Award Committee
