Jackson Hole Packraft is Under New Ownership

Jackson Hole Packraft is Under New Ownership

Amy Hatch, owner and founder of Jackson Hole Packraft has sold the business to Matt Harrington.

Amy founded Jackson Hole Packraft 5 years ago and she pioneered the idea of shipping packrafts as rentals in the lower 48.  Her new venture, Garage Grown Gear, is starting to take off and she wants to be fully engaged to ensure its ongoing success.

Matt Harrington is excited to carry on what Amy has started and will continue to offer the exceptional customer service that Amy and her team are known for.  Matt is a packrafter and an avid outdoorsman.  He is passionate about helping great adventures happen.  Matt is also the owner of another packraft rental business, Backcountry Packraft Rental, which rents and ships packrafts out of Browning, MT (east side of Glacier National Park).

Because Matt lives in Montana, the majority of the rafts have already been moved to Montana and will remain there.  However, you will still be able to rent a couple of our rafts in Jackson Hole through Teton Backcountry Rentals and as always we can ship you our rafts anywhere in the lower 48.  The move also means customers will now be able to rent from both fleets.  This is great because Jackson Hole Packraft has the widest variety of packraft brands and Backcountry has the widest variety of Alpacka models including the 2-person Alpacka Gnu!

For this year at least, the Jackson Hole Packraft website will stay relatively the same.  This will make it easy for former and current customers to find.  A few used rafts will be sold this fall, as they have been in the past.  The current phone number of Jackson Hole Packraft 307-269-0966 will remain active for this year as well.
