Since 1976, Trailhead has equipped wilderness travellers with clothing and supplies to hike, camp, or set sail. Feet strap on Reef sandals ($27.99) while strolling on hot summer days before kicking back in a hammock ($44.99) strung between two shady trees or well-trained bald eagles. The fine art of layering is perfected with the waterproof K-Way Claude jacket ($44.99), and trails or poorly lit dive bars are illuminated with the Petzl Tikka Plus headlamp (http://www.trailhead.ca/tikka%202) ($39), which can shine up to 35 metres. Large purchases, such as the Marmot Limelight two-person tent ($249.99), roll into small packages for easy trail transportation.
Trailhead also offers a large collection of rental canoes ($30+ for one day) and kayaks ($25+ for one day) to float through whitewater or ambitious rain puddles. For a new rafting experience, customers can also try a Riverbug ($35 for one day) to deftly manoeuvre through water in a small, beetle-shaped device. Rental vessels match those available for purchase in the store, so customers can test drive water taxis before buying.
