For NRS E-Series Rafts, E stands for Expedition. If you’re one of those diehard boaters who habitually venture out to battle the sharpest rocks, swiftest currents and ugliest conditions, then these absolutely bomber rafts are for you. The tubes and self-bailing floors are built with super heavy-duty 1670-denier /48 oz. Pennel Orca fabric. The entire underside of the boat is then covered with an additional layer of commercial grade HD-40 floor armor. A Pennel Orca wear patch is added on top to protect the tubes from frame chafe. For safety on long trips, the main tubes are divided into four separate air chambers, providing extra security in emergency situations. Trouble-free Leafield C7 valves ensure easy inflation while a Leafield A6 pressure relief valve protects the floor. Built to be outfitter tough, this may be the last raft the private boater will ever need to buy. Don't need the outfitter grade construction of the E-Series? Check out its little brother, the Otter Series Rafts.
