Win a canoe pack at the Toronto Sportsmen's Show

Algonquin Outfitters has been an exhibitor at the Toronto Sportsmen's Show for many years. This annual event at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto (formerly known as the CNE, or Exhibition Place) is a great place to get revved up for a summer filled with camping, canoeing, fishing and a lot of other outdoor activities.

We can't bring our store to Toronto but we do bring bring our expert canoe trip planners. If you are planning a canoe trip, don't miss this opportunity to talk with an Algonquin Park route guru in person, get great trip ideas, planning tips and lots of other information. You'll find us in booth 1027 in the "outfitters hall." The show is open March 12 through 16. Check here for show hours and other information.

This year we have a special contest only open to show visitors. You can enter a draw to win an "AO" brand canoe pack just like the one in the picture below. Visit our booth, put a pack on your back, guess the weight and enter the contest. The contest is even open to guesses in metric or imperial measurement! We'll have a random draw and pick the entry closest to the exact weight of the pack.

Win a pack like the one carried by the happy camper on the right!

The lucky contest winner will recieve a pack similar to the one carried by the fellow in the photo. This is one of our top-of-the-line "AO Ballistic Packs," made of heavy duty coated Cordura Nylon with Ballistic Nylon reinforcing. The "AO" brand canoe pack is only available from us. There are several styles and sizes available. All of these packs are a modern version of the traditional canoe pack, with tump line, paddled back, padded shoulder strap, side compression straps and a map pocket. The "Ballistic Pack" also features a padded hip belt and collar extension similar to a hiking pack.
