WESTERN CANOE & KAYAK EXPEDITION CART MSRP: $250 This is the stoutest of the bunch. The expedition cart is beefy from the stainless-steel axle to the 16” wheels worthy of a compact car, built for the most remote and rugged conditions – rocky shorelines, bumpy tundra, big loads. This is your baby. The price […]
