BWCA Canoe & Camping Gear We Use

Having been in business for over 20 years conducting camping and canoeing vacations, Moose Track Adventures a Boundary Waters Outfitter has learned what works and what doesn’t. The following companies and their gear is what we currently use in the field for ourselves as well as our customers during our Deluxe Kevlar Canoe Outfitting Packages.

 

Canoes: Wenonah Kevlar Canoes

The premier brand of canoe for people who know and love canoeing. We have solo, tandem (2 person), 3 and 4 person kevlar canoes available in our packages or to rent on their own.

   
  Paddle: Bent Shaft Wooden Paddle 

A beautiful and extra-rugged paddle for general touring. This light-weight elbow paddle combines the good looks of wood with the durability of composites.

   
 

PFD: MTI Livery 

The MTI Livery Vest combines simplicity and superior comfort. Excellent fit range with large arm holes for great mobility. Vest has an anatomically carved lower back panel that minimizes ride-up when seated. Four side straps adjust for a custom, contoured fit.

     
 

Tent: Marmot Tents 

A roomy tent, easy to set up. Two vestibules, for lots of storage, and I always think Marmot adds many nice touches, such as especially well designed gear pouches inside the tent, and super-sturdy tie-out loops.

     
 

Sleeping Bags:  Marmot Trestles – 15 degree

Marmot’s famous quality and rich experience in sleeping bag design in a bag built for backpacking and river trips undertaken in cooler climates.

Deluxe Taped Rip-Stop Tarps are exceptional in strength, quality and value. The edges are reinforced with nylon tape and it has a generous quantity of nylon tape loops for staking out your tarp to your personal configuration
