Boundary Waters Yoke Pads are hand made in Ely, MN and outfitter tested. These yoke pads help make your canoe portages much more comforatble. Many users report these are the most comfortable pads they have ever used. Our BW Yoke Pads are made with water resistance cordura covering and two layers of foam. The foam layers consist of one soft layer for initial comfort and the second layer is more dense for added support.

The BW Yoke Pads Clamp-on for individual adjustments. They are the most popular style for installing and easy removal when transporting your canoe on top of your vehicle. Does not require yoke to be drilled.

These pads work best when your canoe yoke is flat such as an wood portage yoke or square metal tubing. Does not work well with round thwarts.

    Portage Yoke Pads

    These are very well designed and super sturdy. I've used them while carrying a friend's Canoe, and the cushioning was great. Now I've updated my kayak Portage yoke with the same pads. They are way better padded than my original pads.

    Exactly what I needed -- just like the ones the outfitters use, so I can train by carrying our (heavy) canoe at home. And they are made in Ely!

    These pads are awesome! I bought these looking for something better to replace my shaped ones and it was well worth it. Great price too!
