The Challenge

The Challenge

Out in the field, we began to recognize a need for much more superior and functional essentials - tents, shelters, tarps, fireplaces, and anything else to make our wilderness excursions more comfortable and pleasurable. As outfitters, we have take the obligation to to supply the finest peripherals to our clients seriously. There is nothing worse than being miles from civilization with malfunctioning equipment.

R&D

Years of R&D

In the early 1950's, Bill Mason, accomplished filmmaker, artist, author, and avid canoeist began exploring Canada's northern rivers. Bill, a legend in the world of canoeing enthusiasts, was also an innovator, and was constantly searching for ways to improve the equipment he used in his wilderness travels.

Ric Driediger, owner of Churchill River Canoe Outfitters, and Horizon's Unlimited met Bill many years before Bill's passing in 1988. Ric shared Bill's passion for the paddling lifestyle, and soon, the two became friends. Discussions about better equipment led to the initial C.R.C.O. Cotton Campfire Tent design, as well as the development of the first Environmental Fireplace prototype. 

Ric Driediger began to produce and test these early designs in the field. He listened to the input of his clients and his experienced staff as he continued to refine the designs. He recognized that contracting the manufacturing process out would compromise his high standards, and strived to utilize the highest quality materials at all times, even if it drove up his bottom line. Ric set up his own manufacturing facility, where he could monitor craftsmanship and quality control. 

Refinements and improvements were made, and the marketing of C.R.C.O. products began. Since then, a long history of satisfied customers is proof to us that the effort was well worth it.
