Regular price $48.99 Sale

This is a 60L food-grade (HDPE) "total-opening" cylindrical plastic drum with screw-on gasketted lid. Manufactured by CURTEC, and originally used for transporting pharmaceuticals. When they are retired, EUREKA! takes these barrels, cleans them, and gives them a second life as a canoeist's gear barrel.

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Buoyant (it floats!)
  • Rigid/Strong
  • Contains food odours
  • Cylindrical (not tapered)
  • Full-width mouth
  • Screw-on lid
  • Large volume

Cons

  • NOT bear-proof

The size and weight of gear barrels make them less than ideal for long-distance backpacking on dry land. But being waterproof gives them a distinct advantage on water, ie. when canoeing/portaging. Many brands sell a harness that is compatible with these barrels, and makes them more comfortable to carry on your back (sold separately).

 Dimensions:  16 x 23 in / 40 x 58 cm
