Aside postWe’re Going Nuts…

We expect that many of you are. The warm weather is here, the ice is retreating back to the North from the hell in which it came!!! Ok, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but we’ve had enough of the cold weather. We are Canadian, but even we have our limits.

It’s time to paddle!

While our first trip is still just over a week away, we know that some of you are already out there paddling away. Let me be the first to say that:
A) We are jealous… No bones about it.
B) We want to make sure you’re all geared up for the season!

Over the next few weeks, we will be putting items on sale in our store for you. Each week (Tuesday – Sunday) there will be different items on sale. Make sure you check it out if you are in the market for something… And even if you’re not – check it out anyways.

Aside postNew Armytek Flashlights on ManCamping.ca

Armytek Flashlight Partner C2 Pro V3 XHP35

We’ve got exciting news! We have a few of the new Armytek flashlights on ManCamping.ca

We took a stroll down to the Armytek office and picked up three new flashlights. They have some of the same names as the models we currently carry but these new Armytek flashlights are even brighter than before. They could blind a bear and light up the skinny dippers from across the lake before, were not sure where to go from there to describe the new ones. Soooo… lets all be surprised but what comes out of our mouths on this one. 

A few quick points in case you are not familiar.

  • Lumens : the amount of light produced. (1500 lumens is roughly equal to a 100w light bulb
  • Beam distance: How far the light will reach
  • All Armytek flashlights use 18650 batteries and they last a REALLY long time. We have taken them 7 day trips, and continued to use them around the house for an additional month before even thinking about recharging the batteries. 

First up : The Armytek Partner C2 Pro V3 XHP35

Aside postManCamping Wrecking Crew May 2-4 Camping Trip Day 1

ManCamping Launch

So I finally broke down and I am going to write the story of the ManCamping May 2-4 long weekend trip. As I tried to tell you before, SOMEONE was supposed to write it, but they didn’t and our manly stubbornness is getting in the way of your enjoyment. So here is a little lunch time short story for you about our trip to Cox Lake. Yup… you read that right. ManCamping went to Cox Lake.

The idea was to get away for the first long weekend of the summer and get paddling. Pretty simple right? Not so much for all of us. Johnny, actually had to send his wife off to Iceland for the weekend, AND THEN find someone to watch the non-campable dog before he was “allowed” to go. Sorry Johnny, it needed to be written.  After completing this task, we still needed to get Brad out of work early on the Friday.  This did not end so successfully.  Johnny and I, took off mid-afternoon to make sure that we arrived in Peterborough before Wild Rock Outfitters closed. Yes the other two lads (Brad and Bender aka Caillou) that were with us, needed to rent a boat and weren’t going to make it on time.

Guess what Johnny and I did to kill three hours till they showed up? We went for a pint and some wings!
