Matt Olsen – Paddle In

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.

  • 100% Canadian with locally sourced product.
  • The craftsmanship is astounding, seriously take a look at the photos and their website. They really take pride in what they make.
  • They actually use their own products. In fact they just posted some photos from their latest Temagami trip.

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.
