*NEW* Speed Lash Tanks are Here!

After a full winter of testing, we’re ready to make available our new Speed Lash system for Toboggan Tanks and Stove Bags! This speeds up one of the less enjoyable parts of winter camping: loading toboggans, and leaves you with more time for traveling or enjoying camp life!  We’ve summarized the difference in our new Toboggan Outfitting Guide, or you can watch the video below for an even better sense.  These bags are available immediately at the links above.

Note: Our Classic closure system is still available for now, but if others love these Speed Lash bags as much as we do, they’ll likely be the only tank style we offer down the road, we’ll wait and get feedback from you fine folks after you’ve had a chance to test them this winter! 

IMPORTANT: Out of Stock notices

We have a particularly frustrating website glitch that keeps putting products and experiences “out of stock”.  Currently (as of Sept 24) all products except those listed below should be IN STOCK, if something you’re looking for is listed as “out of stock”, please contact us.  We’re working to resolve the issue. Thanks!

Only the following items truly are out of stock for the time being:

  • All hand-made winter moccasins; (DIY kits available!)
  • All hand-made winter mittens; (DIY kits available!)
  • Killarney Big Water Expedition;
  • Georgian Bay Big Water Expedition;
  • Missinaibi Expedition.

What the heck is going on with the chisels!?

We have heard the feedback now from a number of you: you want to see the ice chisels back in production!

Well as of early November we have brought in some new steel, we’ve got a bit of hardwood stock on hand, and we’re going to start producing a few trial chisels.  If that goes well we’ll get all ramped up and get these guys back in production for you in time for the start of the new year and the winter trekking season!

Thanks for your patience and stay tuned!
