I wish Canadians could enter! I could really use a kayak of my very own... I guess I'm renting again.

Is this gear review only open to American members?

It would be nice to have but being I get around only by foot, bike or bus I would have no way to get it to a place to use it.

Yes, this particular contest is only open to residents of the continental United States (lower 48), due to shipping restrictions.

This is the first contest we've had where we had to restrict by residency, and that was due to the prize itself.

Johnson Outdoors, which is sponsoring the contest, will ship the prizes directly to the winner. Johnson Outdoors is based in Old Town, Maine.

Right next to Canada and it can't be shipped there? Not much difference than if you shipped it to say San Diego.

While we'd love to include everyone in this contest (and usually do), unfortunately there are many shipping and customs fees for both shippers and receivers associated with shipping outside of the continental U.S., particularly to a foreign country. It can be extremely pricey, particularly with high value items.

Also, just because Johnson Outdoors is based in Maine, does not mean the prizes will necessarily ship from Maine. They will determine the best way to get the winner their prizes.

Johnson Outdoors is being very generous in donating an $880 paddling package complete with a kayak, paddle, and PFD to one individual. I think some basic restrictions on the gift and the shipping costs they'll incur for providing such a great prize are understandable.

Thank you, Old Town and Johnson Outdoors!
