Adventuring across lakes and down rivers, over hills and through forests. We call it Cross Country Swimming. To make it possible, we created the RuckRaft®.

The RuckRaft® is the next generation tow float for wild swimming.

A simple kit to transform any rucksack into a raft you can easily tow while swimming. Your gear stays dry, so you can keep the adventure going.

“Cross-Country Swimming has got ‘next big thing’ all over it. We’ve never seen anything as smart and as purpose built as the RuckRaft...Everything about this product screams well made quality”

Cross Country Swimming is a bit like mountaineering, alpine style. Epic, self-supported adventures over land and water. Enjoyment, not endurance is our motto.

 
 
 
 

Over the years we’ve been mixing together different bits of kit from hiking, swimming, sailing and boating to get us from A to B. But nothing quite worked. So we created the RuckRaft®. Follow its journey from idea to reality.

Above Below’s first event was The Swimmer – a relaxed half marathon through London’s ponds, pools and parks. ‘One of the most interesting, esoteric, and certainly friendliest sporting events around,’ said The Guardian.
