AIRE Tributary Rafts
Made to AIRE Specs
The ounce weight/denier of the welded PVC tube and floor fabric is 31/1670. The outer PVC layer is resistant to abrasions, chemicals, and extreme conditions. Inside the tubes, the urethane AIREcell bladders are more flexible and resilient than vinyl bladders, and they conform well to the outer hull shape. AIRE Tributary rafts also use low profile Leafield valves which stand up well to abuse. The rafts have slightly diminishing tubes in both the bow and the stern for better wave-punching tactics.

What We Say
With AIRE Tributary rafts, you get plenty of room for your gear, dry bag, tackle, dog, and a few friends. The boats are made to AIRE’s high standards of construction and reliability, but are more affordable – so that you don’t have to spend a lot for a river raft that will only be used a few times a year. Customer reviews heartily endorsed these fun rafts and users say they are pleasantly surprised that the quality is better than they had hoped. Be sure to do your homework and you could end up saving loads if you opt for a new Tributary raft – enough money to cover the cost of your next wilderness trip!
