Wanderer / canoe out of the trunk

Wanderer
Wanderer

Canoe hiking is the trendy new sport amongst outdoor fans. 'Wanderer' excites sportsmen that love to actively connect canoeing with hiking. Compressed to a small lightweight backpack it allows an amazing mobility during tours to the most remote areas. By arriving at the target location it can be easily transformed to a high-class canoe.
It's the material that makes the difference: a double-walled canvas which defines an accurate distance after being inflated. The extremely high internal pressure generates ideal flow conditions inside the water, so that 'Wanderer' fulfills even the highest standards.

Convincing concept and a clever application of the thermal shaped spacer fabrics which allows to make this canoe not only really easy to handle, to transport and to pack. You can stow it easily and very space efficient everywhere and it also improves float conditions. All this supported by a well balanced and a longer lasting design.
