Has anyone used a packable raft?

I'm an aging rafter and want to downshift some. Big whitewater is concerning me. My upper body strength isn't what it used to be for pulling myself back into a raft.

There are some packable rafts available. Seems like a good plan to fold a lightweight raft up and easily portage big rapids. Has anyone tried them?

Thanks KW. I hadn't seen this one before. Posted some questions and waiting for an answer.

Considered Alpaca raft, but can't find source.

I have an Alpaca Yak, the smallest one they make. I've used it on a few slow rivers and several small lakes. My whole kit; Yak, paddle and PFD weighs less than nine pounds.

Just do a search for Alpaca rafts
