I was on Canada AM this past Monday showing a bunch of items rated as the top Christmas camp gadgets by a bunch of outdoor stores (and me). The MSR snowshoes and the Fourplay by Northwater won top of the list for interest once the piece aired. I also liked the Outdoor Research Yukon Cap. Shamus didn't want me to put it on his head - but it was one of my favorite (and I now own it).
MSR Snowshoes with Speedlock Bindings and extensions for deeper snow - very cool and the top seller for families this year; $180
Therm-a-rest camp chair - new design Trekker Chair; $25
Salus dog; $70
Northwater FourPlay - multiple use paddle float - can be used as a chair, sleeping pad, beaching pad for kayak and paddle float for kayaking; $90
Stocking stuffer: Sealine waterproof cases for ipod, e-readers....etc; $10-$30
Cascade Design various dry sacks; $10-$30
