Minimalist Barrel Harness

$35.95 USD

The Minimalist Barrel Harness encases a 60L, 30L or 20L barrel 360 degrees in webbing and is designed to make it easier hauling the barrel and to secure the barrel during transportation or to hang in a tree. The Minimalist Barrel Harness provides multiple lash points to tie a rope or connect a webbing strap. It also has four (4) built in handles to make carrying your barrel easier as well as getting it in and out of your canoe/raft/vessel.

The Minimalist Barrel Harness does not have shoulder straps. The Minimalist Barrel Harness is perfect for those trips where the only time your barrel is carried is from the vessel to the campsite and back. Another use for the Minimalist Barrel Harness is when portaging with a pack or barrel and you want to flip a second barrel up on top. The second barrel wrapped in a Minimalist harness can be easily balanced using the yellow hi-viz tether straps on the top and bottom.

Price is for harness only.
