  You gave me a chuckle

Some of my walks have involved 300 feet of ascent and there is always at least one mile walk over some dozen blowdowns. Like dear Temagami.

Kinda depends on where that "short walk " is how many suspension features that you find on packs is that you need.

The chief difference from a top end canoe pack and a top end backpack is height (canoe pack is lower at the top edge to facilitate portaging) width (canoe pack can be a little wider) , length..so they fit between the thwarts on their side.

You can also consider a hikers backpack if you do not anticipate single carries with the pack and the boat. I have two Lowe Contour IV's that we bought used and used for years.

But we are probably digressing. I am still trying to remember the name of the pack that unspaps in half.
