10% Off All Accesrrories! Built with high-tech XR-Mariner™ material made right here in the U.S., self-bailing NRS Patriot Rafts deliver outfitter-grade durability and performance at a price you can stand up and salute.
  • This boat is patterned similarly to the NRS Expedition 130 and Otter 130 - our most popular designs.
  • With 18" tubes and a 6'4" width, the Patriot 130 is quick and agile without sacrificing stability.
  • Will seat up to 8 paddlers with optional third thwart.
  • Rugged, high-tech XR-Mariner™ material resists UV degradation, abrasion, tearing and puncture.
  • Made in the U.S., XR-Mariner is coated with a proprietary DuPont™ Elvaloy® compound.
  • Elvaloy, an advanced synthetic polymer, is known for its long-term wear properties and flexible, "soft hand" characteristics. Use Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01, to add foot cups, D-rings and make any repairs.
  • Bottoms and tops of the side tubes are armored with a double layer of XR-Mariner material for extra wear protection.
  • 12 stainless steel 2" D-rings give plenty of tie-down points for frame and gear.
  • Four handles make carrying it to the water a breeze.
  • Three main tube air chambers (plus floor and two thwarts) to keep you afloat in the event of an accident.
  • Self-bailing floor with quick-draining holes allows you to leave the bucket at home.
  • Trouble-free Leafield™ C7 Valves ensure easy inflation/deflation of the tubes, thwarts and floor, and the Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve protects the floor.
  • The NRS BAT™ (Batten Attachment Thwart system) lets you easily add or remove thwarts to accommodate paddlers or a rowing frame.
  • 5-year retail warranty, 3-year commercial.

    How does the XR-Mariner fabric compare the your Hypalon rafts ?
    Aside from made in U.S. what other advantages. About similar weight & flexibilty/softness ?

      Ray, XR-Mariner compares very favorably with our Pennel Orca (hypalon) material. We worked with the manufacturer for years as they tweaked the formula to meet our exacting requirements. On criteria like UV and abrasion-resistance, puncture, tear, glue adhesion, etc, one might be better than the other in one, but overall the two are quite similar. One of the things we like about XR-M is that it does have a very soft "hand", similar to hypalon.
