Equipment and Outfitting

We use the highest-quality equipment available. Over the years, we have designed, refined, and produced much of the gear that is now accepted as the standard in the canoe tripping industry. Items such as the "Barrel Pack" and "Black Feather Spray Deck" were born through experimentation on northern rivers. Working with top outdoor-equipment manufacturers, Black Feather ensures that each piece of gear is suitable for the environment where it will be used. Our equipment systems help keep you remarkably comfortable, safe, and happy in some very challenging situations.

Of course, satellite phones and other communication devices are carried on our wilderness trips and ensure that emergency help is within reach.
