C&K canoe portage cart review

Made in New Zealand, the C-tug breaks the mold for portage carts. Constructed out of molded plastic parts which snap and clip together in short order and with no loose pieces, it is relatively light, very compact, and trouble free over varied terrain. Broken down, it will fit inside a 10” kayak hatch. Solid, plastic tires with grip tread eliminates the worry of flat tires (can be outfitted with rubber/balloon tires if preferred). It performs well in rough terrain, adequately on pavement, and carries a big load with a very secure strap system.  My only quibble is with the kick-stand, which is the least secure part of the set-up.

    I used a C-Tug on my descent of the Missouri River in 2013. While it might fit into a kayak hatch, you will have little room for much else. I carried it on the deck behind me. The kick stand is a piece of junk and broke off while traversing some rough ground. Also don’t bother with the pneumatic tires – shoddy design and quality. I had replaced them before I started my trip. Don’t get sand in the axles – but that may be true for other models. Nothing to rust which is a bonus. Despite my criticisms, I plan to use it on my planned descent of the Mississippi in 2015.
