What do you do when there is nothing on the market that does what you need? You start fresh and build your own. We've been looking for the perfect top off pump for over a decade. Something light and compact enough to fit in your backpack but durable enough for regular use. Exercise ball pumps are lightweight, compact, and cheap but difficult to use with packraft valves and easy to break. The K-Pump is elegantly designed, easy to use, Made in the USA and bombproof. It's a great pump for sidecountry and roadside use, but even the mini size is too big for backpacking.
So we built the Pack-A-Pump, featuring polycarbonate tubing and a direct thread interface with our valves so that it is half the size and weight of the K-Pump mini at only 7ounces and just over 10 inches long. It's the perfect size to fit in your pack or bow bag, but still top off your boat in about 30-40 pumps. And being the weight and space savers that we are, we added internal storage to the pump handle so you can keep your repair essentials and Cargo Fly maintenance kit on hand at all times.
Note: The Pack-A-Pump's direct thread valve interface is only compatible with post-2017 style Alpacka Raft temper assist valves. It will not work with 2016 and earlier Alpacka dump valves and nozzles or any other brand of inflatable boat.
