For old-school paddlers, wannigans are well loved accoutrements of many a back-country trip. Usually carried by means of a tump line only, RBW now introduces a harness system with included tump line for easier and more comfortable hauling of not only wannigans, but also coolers, pelican cases, ammunition cases, propane tanks, etc..

Comprised of two vertical and two horizontal 1" straps fed through slip lock and tension lock buckles and daisy chain, with quick-release buckles on the vertical straps for easy access into gear, the RBW Wannigan Harness sports 4 high-vis handles for easy lifting in and out of watercraft or other vehicles, and a padded back pad and adjustable shoulder straps allow a load to be carried as high or low on one's back as they desire. The included padded detachable Super Tump allows for the use of a tump line if so desired.
