PakCanoe 170 is the wilderness workhorse. It can carry two paddlers with gear for a month or more. With a length of 17 ft. (5.20 m) and a payload of up to 910 lbs. (415 kg), it is ideally suited for use on long and demanding expeditions.
As a family canoe, it can hold parents with several kids and gear. With its large “footprint” the 170 offers the best alternative for shallow water. Luggage can be distributed well because of the size of the 170, and the 38” (96 cm) beam offers very high stability. The boat comes standard with two bench seats. If required, additional seats can be installed. A spray cover is available. The 170 is available in red or green, each with a black bottom.

Since 1995 Pakboats has been designing and manufacturing a wide range of folding canoes, folding kayaks, and accessories. In everything they do, they strive to provide the most functional gear possible at a fair price.
Pakboats can be fit on top of a car just as easily as hard kayaks, but their lighter weight makes it easier to get them up there and their paddling performance is also similar to hard kayaks (and much better than inflatables), except that the lightweight makes a Pakboat more responsive.
Canoes and kayaks that you can pack for travel are generally folding or inflatable. Both have their special advantages, and Pakboats combine the best features of both. In each Pakboat, a complete aluminum frame provides efficient lines and rigidity, while inflatable tubes provide tensioning and flotation. The combination of frame and inflatable tubes make a much more compact structure than air alone, and a Pakboat has much more interior space than a similar size inflatable canoe or kayak. The unique Pakboats structures are also much lighter and pack smaller. Similar size inflatables weigh about 50% more than a Pakboat.
