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?

THanks!

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.
