Other things to note:

It is highly recommend to practice your heat sealing technique before attempting to make one of our DIY Packraft Deluxe Kits.

Our heat sealable fabric can be purchased from our shop by the metre to practice with and give you the confidence to begin heat sealing.

Due to the manufacturing process, the TPU surface may show streaking. Although, this does not affect the performance of the product.

Additionally all fabric pieces are hand cut and may require minor alterations throughout assembly.

All instructional material is available on the IRON RAFT website and no physical instructions are included in the DIY Packraft Deluxe Kit.

"Excellent Quality And Service!"

This is my first time ordering from Iron Raft. The quality of the material I received is excellent. The dispatch of the material was absolutely prompt and it arrived just in time that I needed. I'd have to make a special mention of the handwritten note by Toby thanking for purchasing from them. I'd purchase from them again in the future.
