Camp gadgets I can’t live without

One of the presentations I’m giving at this weekend’s Explore Adventure and Travel Show at the International Show in Toronto is based on five camp gadgets i wouldn’t go on a canoe trip without. Or basically, what I want for Christmas from my wife this year. Attached is a video I made just before Christmas last year on the top camp gadgets selling at stores. I’ll be making a new one soon.

My top pieces of gear for the show:

1. A good straight-shaft paddle
2. Compression sacks
3. Therm-a-rest
4. Quality tarp
5. Gravity Water Filter
…and a sense of humour and a canoe partner that also has a good sense of humour.

What are your top camp gadgets?

Hope to see you at the show.
