Addition of Packasport rooftop cargo carrier to existing LSII series fiberglass tonneau cover and CX-Series truck cap in the DU series.

A.R.E. Inc. is expanding its Ducks Unlimited Special Edition product line with the addition of a Packasport rooftop cargo carrier. The Packasport joins the company's existing LSII series fiberglass tonneau cover and CX-Series truck cap in the DU series.

"We've had terrific success with our special edition Ducks Unlimited line since we became an Official Partner in January of 2001," said Todd Roberson, vice president, sales and marketing, A.R.E., Inc. "Now, with the addition of the new Packasport rooftop carrier, hunters, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts will have a great place to stow their equipment and wet gear, freeing up the back of their vehicles."

The new DU-Edition Packasport, which features the prestigious Ducks Unlimited logo in yellow with the Packasport logo in a wetlands camouflage pattern, is available on all of the five existing models, including:

  • System 60 LP, at 10.5 cubic feet
  • System 60, 14.5 cubic feet
  • System 90, 21 cubic feet
  • System 90XP, 19.5 cubic feet
  • System 115, 30.5 cubic feet

For durability and strength, each Packasport is built with reinforced fiberglass using laminations of aluminum, Cormat and foam, much like the process behind building the hull of a fine, hand-crafted boat. For style the company adds an 18-mil gel coat finish (black or white) to the contoured, aerodynamic design that looks great on any vehicle, any time of year. The company also can custom paint the units to match any vehicle.

All models come with a limited two-year warranty and can be installed on almost any roof rack - factory or aftermarket. A portion of the sales price will be donated to Ducks Unlimited to benefit the organization's conservation efforts.

With more than a million supporters, Ducks Unlimited ( is the world's largest and most successful wetland and waterfowl conservation organization. The United States alone has lost more than half of its original wetlands - nature's most productive ecosystems - and continues to lose more than 100,000 wetland acres every year.
