Portage your 60 Litre or 30 Litre canoe barrel comfortably and securely with this harness born from miles of experience on the roughest portage trails. 

This harness is designed to fit most body sizes and features generous padding on the shoulder straps, hip-belt and back-pad between you and the barrel. Other advantages this harness has are features like a longer shoulder-strap tension adjustment strap which is easier to reach when wearing the harness.  This harness also has a webbing strap across the top of the barrel to secure your load and serves as a place for extra clothing layers or your PFD while on the portage.

Price is for harness only.
