The Uncharted Rapid Raft is the ultimate survival tool for travelers and campers. Designed for rapid water crossings, it’s able to inflate in seconds. Whether you find yourself stranded in a flood or just want a quick raft to fish on, it’s easy to take with you wherever you go.


The raft was made with military specifications in mind and weighs only three pounds. Fully inflated, the raft can hold up to a 400-pound capacity and stretches up to 72 inches in length. There are no inflation pumps needed and it fills manually by hand —,a one-way valve allows you to quickly adjust the air pressure and buoyancy of the raft. It also deflates just as quickly as it sets up. The Rapid Raft is made with ultra-durable Nylon Oxford TPU Laminate and designed to withstand scraps from river bottoms and debris.


While it might not be practical for trips overseas, the Rapid Raft is great for treks across the country or even weekend camping trips. Even if you’re not out and about much these days, it’s a good accessory to have if you live in an area prone to flooding.


Pre-ordering has just begun, with first shipments expected this month. The retail price is $399, which seems a little steep but might be worth the price if it holds up well in an emergency. Be sure to check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.

Under $100: Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is a city on Israel’s Mediterranean coast, labeled the “Mediterranean Capital of Cool’ by The New York Times. Here’s how to explore the city while staying under budget.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
