Beach Chair


It's only  a couple of lbs, it folds up tiny, about the size of say three softballs in a line.  It's strong as hell, I'm 350 an it holds me fine.  it's fast and easy to fold up and unfold.   For canoe camping it's perfect. I use it motorcycle camping.  It is also tall in the back so you have a nice headrest.  

I have the helinox chair one and it's ok, but the lack of neck rest makes it kinda uncomfortable.  Perfect for kicking back in camp after a day in an upright canoe seat.

I hurts, till you sit in it.  And then it's worth it.   It's DAC aluminum poles, and HEAVY nylon super stitched. This isn't a flimsy disposable camp chair. you'll own this thing for years.


PS - watch amazon pretty close, I've seen it down as low as 120

I don't know how far off the beaten path you might go, but if you're likely to be out of range of any sort of cellular signal (and most of humanity), and you want your loved ones, friends and yourself to have some peace of mind, there's the DeLorme InReach SE.  It enables two-way text communication and tracking via the Iridium satellite constellation, as well as an "SOS" feature if you find yourself, those in your party, or those you might cross paths with, in trouble.  The interface on the device itself is a bit balky, but it easily links with any smartphone or tablet through the free Earthmate app that resolves any of those issues. Another plus is it holds a charge for 4 days and it uses a micro-USB port for recharging, which also means that any portable power bank or solar device can be used to recharge it.





Currently, it is selling for about $290. However, it is usually closer to ~$260, but on a couple of occasions it has been on as at $225-$230. There is also a subscription fee, but you can activate and deactivate the device on a monthly basis, as needed. (*NOTE* DeLorme was recently acquired by Garmin.)







I've used it all over the past couple of years, including alone in Death Valley (so no worries about ending up like those German tourists ). Again, the peace of mind it provides cannot be overstated.

This being the case, you may be required to pack that shit out depending where you'll be.  So...you'll need a 20mm rocket box & a toilet seat.  That's the cool kid's choice in the west.

I got a great little Coleman Lantern, LED runs for 40 hours, has a USB male AND female for the charge port/phone charger.

You can never have too many lanterns, you will always need another.

None of the packing saws I've seen or used are more than novelty items.

This one is a real saw. It weighs more, but you can cut real wood with it too.


Couple with a hatchet and/or Ontario Knives survival machete, and you can make a lot of tinder, kindling, and firewood in a short amount of time.

You can get knock-off Helinox's from China for about $30-35, I have one...if there's a difference, I can't see it (compared it to the REI and Helinoxes at some moto camps).

+3 for a hammock

Hang it from rocks.  Where are you canoeing that there aren't any trees?  Desert camping or camping above the tree line I'd understand, but canoeing?

Do a search and you should be able to find a hammock on amazon for about $25 if you want to give it a try without investing a bunch of money.  You don't need a rainfly and mosquito netting to figure out if sleeping in a hammock is right for you. Buy a better one later if you like it.

Sometimes a quiet island out in the middle of the river is preferable to the noisy shoreline.

Glock 19. It's perfect for every situation. It is big enough to scare away the bears in the woods, and yet compact enough to hide in your travel sized bag of trail mix. If you take a good old Glock 19 into the woods, you don't even need to pack shelter, or food, or anything really. It is that versatile.

D'oh.  It's been so long since I've been on a river of any decent size I didn't think about that.  Good answer.  You can use your hammock for a ground cloth and your tarp for overhead cover with a couple trekking poles FWIW.
