  • NRS Outlaw Series Rafts give you time-tested NRS boat designs at a price that will make you smile.

Very Happy

Comments about NRS Outlaw 140 Self-Bailing Rafts:

This is my first raft and for the price you cant go wrong I have about 150 miles on it no over nights yet but it's very durable very easy to manuver and tracks well. I use a bighorn 2 frame and I can carry at least 5 people including myself I see other comments about the floor being able to get dirt and such under it which is true but I've had no problems cleaning it out with just a hose I'am very satisfied with the product for the price you can't go wround

Best Uses

    Comments about NRS Outlaw 140 Self-Bailing Rafts:

    I bought this boat on a budget and I'm very happy with my purchase. The pros of the boat's build with the price in consideration make it a great value. I have used it twice (Roaring Fork in Colorado, and the San Juan in Utah), and both times I had no issues, but then again, they aren't technical rivers.

    My only criticism of the boat is the floor set up. The BAT system can be difficult, frustrating and painful to remove or attach. I've literally scraped up my hands badly trying to get the inserts in and out until I learned the best strategy; wedge open the insert holes for a moment before trying to push the insert through, and don't the floor down too hard or the insert holes will just close.

    The floor set up also makes cleaning the boat more difficult. Not only do you have to deal with removing the floor, but then the drainage holes don't make spraying out debris any easier. When you just ran the San Juan and you're trying to remove 70 pounds of sound it can take almost a full afternoon. San Juan is an extreme example but you get the idea.

    The material is very strong, the floor is very stable to stand on, and the d-ring system is as good as you need it to be. Tubes are big, and the stern and bow aren't unnecessarily elevated. Plenty of room for multi-night trips... PLENTY of room.

    Don't kid yourself - this is a price point boat. The material is thick and moderately heavy, but a perk is that it isn't that hard to roll up by yourself. Plus it rolls up much smaller than comparable boats - I'm storing my friend's 14' RMR and his rolls up nearly 150% of the NRS.

    I'm not sure why, but NRS doesn't put their logo on this raft. It says "Outlaw" which is cool enough, I suppose.

    Overall: Not too cheap, not too expensive. Great first boat for someone who truly wants to get into multi-night trips and still have money for good gear. Between the boat and the gear I have probably spent $4K (raft, oars, frame, dry bags, coolers, straps, ropes, etc.).

    Service and delivery comments:

    My floor began a micro-leak on my 2nd trip. I thought it was a defect and sent it back to NRS; they said it wasn't a defect and it just some how got punctured slightly, and of course they just sent me a brand new floor because their customer support is amazing.

    Comments about NRS Outlaw 140 Self-Bailing Rafts:

    I have had this boat 1.5 years, and it is holding up and rowing exceptionally. Holds lots of people and gear, and tracks well.
    My only complaint would be the floating floor... it is tied in, but things can get lost under it, and not easily retrieved.

    Great family boat, some drawbacks but lots of fun

    By Nolnacs

    from Denver, CO

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Good construction
    • Solid Tracking

    Cons

    • Heavy
    • Removable Floor

    Best Uses

    • Multiday trips
    • Rafting

    Comments about NRS Outlaw 140 Self-Bailing Rafts:

    Purchased this raft in late winter and started to outfit it for a multi-day trip on the San Juan in UT.

    Performance:
    This boat rows very easily and has good tracking on the water. I find I can make small or minor adjustments to orientation or direction while flowing with the river and the boat tracks with the current in that position very nicely. Given the weight of the boat and all of the gear in it for 4 over 8 days, it was getting pretty full, however the boat managed the load effortlessly. I found no real impact to the performance of the boat under load.

    Comfort:
    This is very relative given everyone's rig may be a little different. However I found this to be comfortable and forgiving over a week + trip.

    Durability:
    The boat seems well constructed and very durable. I have some long term fears about the inflatable floor holding up given some design decisions, but my immediate impressions are that the boat is in extremely well made. I only have about 100 river miles so far. As I said the thwart and floor attachment methods are a concern and the fact that the inflatable floor rests on the bottom of the boat, I'm concerned that sand and grit will ultimately lead to a puncture of the inflatable element of the floor.

    Experience:
    Two notable experiences this year, one early season trip on the Upper Colorado impressed me. The boat hauled gear with ease and was very maneuverable on the river. This was a solo trip and I made the decision to fit suspended hard or mesh floors over the inflatable floor for more rower and gear stability. The boat is heavy, PVC is heavy. This was a concisous trade-off for me given the pricing. It was a reasonable decision as I could handle the boat alone. This was a great first impression and a short overnight trip.

    Second experience was on the San Juan river June 2015. The river was peaking its spring run off exaggerated by strong rainstorms that was causing a number of side canyon flash floods, the river crested at 9K cfs, if you know the San Juan you recognize that being 5x normal flow levels. Needless the say the river was full of debris and silt. Despite the river flowing much faster than normal with a number of changes in its typical characteristics, the Outlaw ran very comfortably. What limited bigger water that the San Juan has to offer was easily handled by the Outlaw 140, as well as a very comfortable boat for 4 family members and their gear for 8 days. However when taking out, the boat seemed to have accumulated twice its normal weight. Once home I finally understood that the inflatable floor is held in via the same methods as the thwarts, a pin or slat through slot mechanism (seems sturdy enough). But this meant that the floor is removable as well as a fantastic place to stow away 90 lbs of San Juan silt. Its taken me 3 days to finally remove all of the added mud and it was difficult to remove the raft floor to clean underneath it. While not a fatal flaw by any means, its a consideration as it has to be cleaned out of accumulated debris.

    Overall I'm really happy with the boat. It will be my go to for longer trips and family outings, but I may consider sticking with my Cat when rivers are silty or for short outings given the weight of this boat.

    Service and delivery comments:

    delivery was very easy and simple, NRS is great to work with.

    SWEET RIDE!

    By RJ

    Pros

    • Drop Stitch Floor
    • Tough
    • Turns on a dime
    • Well built

    Cons

    • Tracking

    Best Uses

    • Camping
    • Fishing
    • Oar Frame Overnighters
    • Rafting

    Comments about NRS Outlaw 140 Self-Bailing Rafts:

    I bought this boat with the big horn II style frame and added a few things. I added the front raised fishing seat, front thigh bar, high back rower seat (Highly recommend over low back seat), and then added the rear fishing seat and thigh hook, as well as the anchor attachment. I also chose pins and clips on this frame setup and have been super happy with the results. Super quiet, easy to use, and my friends who have never rowed a boat can row this rig so I can fish as well. I have been out on 10-12 trips since I received the boat in October and I must say its holding up great. I take care of my gear, but I also use it and don't think twice about it. If its holding up to me then its a solid rig.

      Q:

      What is the rated weight capacity of the 140?
      Asked on 8/13/2015 by Dennis from S.W.Wyoming

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Dennis, we don't rate our boats on weight-carrying capacity; it's too subjective a criteria. This article explains why - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/boatweightcapacity.asp - The Outlaw 140 can carry a big paddling crew for day-run fun and take 3-4 people and gear on multidays and 2-3 on multi-week expeditions. Our 140s are one of our most versatile designs.

      Q:

      Can the Outlaw be rolled up as tight as the hypalon Otter rafts?

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Tucker, PVC or urethane coated boat material is stiffer than the hypalon coated Otters and E-boats, so it won't roll up as compactly.

      Any idea on the weight without the floor insert and thwarts? Wondering how tough it will be to pack up and load in a vehicle.

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Louis, the floor insert and thwarts will weigh about 30 pounds. I load my E-150 by myself. It's almost as heavy as I am so I roll it up on a cooler or dry box as an in-between step for getting it in the pickup bed.

      Asked on 6/6/2014 by Erich

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Erich, inflate the tubes and thwarts to 2.5 psi and the drop-stitch floor insert to 8-10 psi. You can put more pressure in the floor, but probably won't need to.

      How would you compare the Outlaw to the Otter? I have been an NRS owner for years and would like all of the low down on durability and construction of this new boat.....The price seems too good to be true. Thanks!
      Asked on 5/28/2014 by Diablata

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        In dimensions, rocker, etc the Outlaw rafts are similar to their Otter and Expedition cousins. Performance differences come largely from the drop-stitch floor. It's smooth across the bottom (as opposed to the I-beam) which slightly reduces tracking, but consequently increases ease of turning. The stiffness of the insert increases wave punch. Construction: all air holding seams are welded, accessories are glued. PVC material has been around in boat manufacture for a long time and it's significantly cheaper than Pennel Orca (hypalon). Also lowering the cost of PVC boats is the welding. It takes 4-5 times more man hours to make an Otter or E-boat. We believe these boats will be a good value for the recreational boater.

      Q:

      I am curious about the floor design. I've read about how the drop stitch floor is attached, but looking at the photo, there is a noticeable gap in the floor beside the drop stitch deck and the actual floor of the boat. It looks like foot entrapment could happen from the gap, have you guys had any problems with it in testing? Are toes able to fit below the drop stitch deck? I have a friend looking to me for advice on a low cost entry level raft, and I want to know if this is a viable option for him.
      Asked on 5/17/2014 by Learch from Dundee, OR

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        In testing the Outlaw we haven't found that gap between the edge of the drop-stitch insert and the tube to be a problem. A smaller foot can fit in that space but that's not the same as entrapping the foot so it can't be removed. And with the battens in place that secure the insert to the floor, and with the floor properly inflated, you can't slip a foot under the insert.

        A:

        Rich, the insert is firmly anchored to the floor with several of our Batten Attachment Thwart pieces. One half is glued to the floor, the other half is glued to the bottom of the insert and a plastic batten connects the two. It's a solid set up and it keeps the insert flat and firmly in place.
