Whisky Jack Outdoor Co. is a hobby gone too far. Unsatisfied with the limited availability on todays market, we started designing and building freight toboggans for winter camping and traditional backcountry travel. After years of building, it’s time we opened up and let people see inside. We pride ourselves on using the best material and putting in the time to do things right.
We are proud of what we build, our love and passion for the outdoors drives who we are and what we do.
We’re located in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. Send us a message if you’d like to stop in and see our work.
Canadian Traditional Freight Toboggans. Hand made and custom built. Built with quarter inch UV protected high density polyethylene, allowing the toboggan to adjust and glide over uneven terrain. Crossbars are locally sourced White Oak, hard, tough and naturally resistant to water and rot; these will take years of abuse. These toboggans come ready to go with stainless steel and solid brass hardware, webbing for gear lashing, pull lines / tump, a front haul loop and a tail line for easy downhill control…all you need is snow.
Total length (including curl), 9 feet – Total weight, approximately 20 pounds.

Now that the winter season has wrapped up, I’ve had some time to work on the new Whisky Jack Outdoor Co. logo. I’m definitely better at building… Read more “New logo released!”
Had an amazing trip testing the latest toboggan in Temagami. We hauled through all kinds of weather, snow conditions and terrain. We saw everything from slush, standing… Read more “Temagami”
Here’s something Canadian-made. Winter camper, Jon Wakani, of Whisky Jack Outdoor Co., asked me to test out his handmade, custom-built freight toboggan and I have to say it’s got all the bells and whistles. I love it.
The toboggan is quarter-inch, UV-protected high-density polyethylene, allowing the toboggan to adjust and glide over uneven terrain. Crossbars are locally sourced white oak—hard, tough, naturally resistant to water and rot and attached by stainless steel screws. Of course, that’s all normal for modern freight toboggans. Jon has added exceptional side lashing and straps to help tie in your gear. This part is awesome, especially when your fingers are frozen and you’re having a hard time feeling each digit while yanking on rope and bungee cord. The pull harness uses rope and wider nylon webbing, and the length of pull line is adjustable to suit personal preference, weather and terrain conditions. There’s also a front haul loop and a tail line for easy downhill control. Total length (including curl) is nine feet; weight, 20 pounds.
Early this season I found myself in need of new freight toboggans. I spent a lot of time researching different models, styles etc etc. It was just by chance that I had joined a new FB group which was all about winter camping and through that group I made an amazing discovery….Whisky Jack Outdoor Co.
They make toboggans….really freaking nice toboggans.
Instantly a few things jumped out at me and made me contact them. Here they are in no particular order.
Now that I actually have the toboggan in my possession I love it even more. As my son says “holy Dad these things slide like snot” and it’s true. They are made of one quarter inch UV protected high density polyethylene, and boy do they slide. On a recent trip my partner had a six foot pulk she was pulling and she was amazed at how easy and effortless it was to slide my toboggan around even loaded down with all the gear I had compared to her set up.
It comes equipped with a lashing system which is effective and easy to use for loading everything you need onto your sled, or tying down unruly children. The cross bars are locally sourced white oak. Super strong and rot resistant they’ll last a lifetime. From top to bottom they are a very well put together freight toboggan.
So if you’re in the market for a freight toboggan or even if you’re not but have some questions. Make sure to contact Jon at Whisky Jack Outdoor Co.. They are our choice for freight toboggans and will be as long as he keeps making them.
