Wanted: Super Light Float tube
I need a float tube that I can fit in my backpacking pack...not a day pack. The lightest tube I've found is a Creek Company, but add the pump, tent, sleeping bag, waders, stove, and food, and things get heavy--quick.

There used to be a float tube called Lunker Hunter. It was made with neoprene coated nylon and used the storage bag to inflate it. Anyone have one and want to sell it?

Wood River
has a Gliderider float tube that weighs onyl 5# and folds/rolls into a compact package that would work for backpacking. I have the heavier codura version for my wife, have used it and like it a lot. The lighter version would work well for packing. It is not much of a problem to blow it up by mouth, so the pump is not relly necessary.

I was just going to post about a gliderider I recieved in trade from a guy out in Puget. Very nice. It showed up in a box that measured about 12x12x18. I was like "no way is that whole boat in here". Sure enough, it was packed down, and stuffed in there, much lighter than I had thought. You could easily mouth inflate this one. Its the V-boat, I believe its even the larger model than TR mentioned.
