This is the only custom-fit barrel harness on the market. And it makes a huge difference in comfort and stability. Canoe barrels can be notoriously uncomfortable due to the short torso and pressure on your spine. Our harness has contoured layers of foam, so it actually feels more like a canoe pack. New for 2021 - the “Upper Adjustment". This feature improves comfort and carry for most paddlers. Totally waterproof, and "critter-resistant" canoe food barrels are great for food and gear. 



  • Contoured layers of reticulated and closed-cell foam eliminate the pressure of the canoe barrel’s curve on your spine.
  • NEW! Our Upper Adjustment now allows our harness to fit taller paddlers.
  • Barrel harness cinches to the top and bottom of the barrel using webbing and ladderloc buckles.
  • Extra-long lid straps for lashing extra gear for the portage.
  • NEW! The optional “Pack Board Converter” allows you to carry awkward loads. (chainsaw, water containers etc)
  • 3 padded handles on the front, and back for easy lifting.
  • 1000 Denier nylon fabric.

  • Fits 30L and 60L canoe food barrels.
