60L Blue Barrels are synonymous with the North Country. Flip through Canadian publications and you will surely find a canoe laden with these blue barrels. They are perfect for food storage and bulky gear. In camp, they serve double duty as a stool or mini table. Just don't expect this barrel to be bear proof. Most critters will be kept at bay and the oder-proof water-proof gasket will minimize your risks, but large animals can chew through the shell.

Pair the 60L barrel with a good harness for easy portages. When loaded with dense objects like food, the 60L barrel can be quite heavy.

The 60L Barrel will be shipped USPS-unboxed.

Cleanest way to camp rating
The Wisconsin River being so close is a common destination of mine. When camping on a sand bar, sand has the tendency to infiltrate everything. That is unless you are packing in large barrels. They stay clean and dry while on the sand, but also while in the bottom of a boat during the heaviest of rainstorms. While a barrel may weigh more than a pack, it doesn't soak up water like fabric so probably doesn't weigh any more. Plus the design offers a nice seat and I don't have to worry about keeping it under my rainfly at night to keep dry. I just set it next to the tent and shake the dew off in the morning. I lube the hinges on my barrels once a season with a lithium grease to keep everything operating smoothly but otherwise I haven't had to do any maintenance on mine through the years of hard use.
