|Canoe Trip Outfitting
A wilderness canoe trip requires equipment that is dependable but also lightweight and easily portable. Based on personal field tests, Boundary Waters Outfitters has selected the best available gear for our complete packages. With our gear traveling becomes faster and more efficient, while portages become easier and more enjoyable. Without a doubt we have redefined the way you will travel, portage and camp within the Boundary Waters.
