Sierra Raft Foot Pump

$125. Our very highest quality foot pump is the Sierra Raft Foot Pump (suitable for inflatable kayaks too) which we’ve sold since 1985. There are less expensive, but for rafters who want something reliable to pack along, they don’t get any beefier than this bad boy foot pump. 3/4″ marine plywood bellow plates, 840 denier black hypalon bellows, stainless hinges, super strong spa hose, and hinge bolts that penetrate all the way through the plywood make this pump the toughest you can buy. At five pounds it is pretty heavy, so it may not be the best one for inflatable kayakers wanting to stow a pump behind the seat.

Avon, having been bought by Zodiac many years back, long ago quit making their wooden foot bellows pumps, and Cascade Outfitters likewise stopped making the Big Foot pump ages ago. So folks, this Sierra Raft Foot Pump is the last of the Mohicans – the only remaining hand made foot pump, wooden or otherwise, in the world.

“Normal” footpumps, like this one, the Bravo II, 7M, and 8’s won’t put out more than maybe 2.8 or 3 p.s.i., so if you want to get your Lynx really firm either a Bravo top-off model or one of the hand pumps in this section might be better.
