Back-Country Camping Gear
Back country trips require one to take along any and all pieces of gear, equipment and clothing one may need - daunting for the uninitiated, but an experience that brings with it one of the best feelings of freedom and liberation to be had.
Car Camping Gear
Car camping is one of the more traditional ways that Canadians begin their adventures outdoors. It provides access to being in nature while providing a few creature comforts for the initiated.
Canoe and kayak trips, like other backcountry trips, allow one to roam over huge geographic areas and access landscapes that are inaccessible via any other method.
