Harmony Stowaway Beach Cart

Load-bearing Cart

Brand: Harmony

Model: Stowaway Beach Cart

Want to make put-ins a snap? This breakdown cart employs soft, 9.5-by-4.5-inch inflatable tires to wheel your craft from car to water and back again. Simply prop its kickstand, plop your canoe’s center on the padded bars, fasten the buckled straps for security, and let the tires bear the load over sand, mud, hills, and root-filled paths. Bonus: The aluminum frame collapses down to a flat, 25-by-13-inch square for storage. While it’s a tad big to bring on longer hauls with portages, for shorter trips it’s a back preserver. “It saved us a brutal carry on the quarter-mile hike to Trapper’s Lake,” says one Colorado tester. “Hauled our fully loaded, 110-pound canoe flawlessly, saving multiple trips.” harmonygear.com
