Richard shares a picture of his Folbot Aleut in action with a friend in Alaska at Columbia Bay near Valdez.
Canoecopia 2014 is underway. And we’re in full swing, meeting/greeting/testing/talking. If you’re here, stop by and see us. If not, follow along on Twitter #canoecopia.
As in…throw back your rod!
Do you like to camp? And pack light? Meet the Poler Mystic Tarpent.
There are several things to love about the Tarpent.
1. It’s ultra-portable. I mean, it’s basically two tarps. Fold them up and they weigh less than 2 pounds!
2. It’s super versatile. Do you need [waterproof] ground cover? Check. Want a one-man tent? Done.
3. It’s even handy in emergency situations! “Because the material reflects 90% of your body heat it can be used to wrap up in and keep someone warm in an emergency or in cold weather as a space blanket would. You can also use the silver side to reflect the sun…or to attract attention in an emergency.”
Has your Facebook feed been filled with quizzes recently? From “Which Jurassic Park Character Are You?” to “What City Should You Actually Live In?”, I know really specific things about a LOT of people! (But if you’re one of them, I’m really very interested that you would be Frosted Flakes breakfast cereal and Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter.)
ANYWHO…these quizzes are similar to our new kayak selector tool (which maybe we should rename “Which Folbot Are You?”). Just answer 5 questions we’ve crafted to know more about you and how you would use your kayak. Then we give you our suggestion(s) for the best Folbot for you. It’s simple and (as we’ve found, it’s also quite accurate)! Questions include: How tall are you? How will you use your Folbot (sail, paddle long distances, take a friend, etc)? Is speed important?
So….What Folbot Are You?
We hope to see a lot of Faces of Folbot at Canoecopia this year!
Canoecopia, held in Madison, Wisconsin, is the world’s largest paddling expo. Over 20,000 paddlers attend, 200+ manufacturers bring products, and 150 seminars teach and inspire.
We’ll be there! And we’re bringing some Folbots with special show pricing and a new giveaway promotion for March. Stop by to register for the giveaway and see how Folbot fits into a backpack and in your lifestyle.
As always, you can be with us in spirit. Follow us on Twitter for updates from the show!
