Shoulder Carry Foam Pad

$12.00

Do you have a lightweight solo canoe (or kayak)? Does a full clamp-on yoke seem like overkill for the short distances you’re portaging? Here’s the simple and economic solution.

The Shoulder Foam Carry Pad makes it comfortable to rest one gunwale on your shoulder while the other gunwale rests on your hip, and the canoe is carried on its side. Only one pad required per canoe.
