Ben Fogle inflatable boat

Just wached a recording of Ben Fogle in Alaska on TV and he was using a one person inflatable boat along with a couple and their two children in two other boats.
Can anyone tell me what make and model they were and if they are available in the UK.
I've searched the web but can only find "toy" ones, the kind kids get washed out to sea in.
The three they were using seemingly packed into a large rucksack, along with a stove, tent and all the other stuff needed for camping in the wilderness, amazing!

I think you'll find they are called "Pack Rafts"..."Pack inflatables" and the like.
Not Toys at all,and a great innovation for distance wilderness travel.Has to be a great idea...as we all know...where there's water there's a use for inflatables!!

they would be great for kids hard to turn over if at all in place of canoes good for the whole family,
just had a look you can buy in Europe different types also white water,good idea for the rib leave the boat at anchor and paddle in to shore.
