Wisconsin: Canoecopia


A global gathering in Madison, Wisconsin

Only a few miles away from Eagle Optics you can find the world's largest gatherings for cows and canoes. Madison, Wisconsin proudly hosts the World Dairy Expo each fall–an international event with everything a dairy worker could wish for under one roof. If you prefer canoes and kayaks over cows, you should head to Canoecopia in Madison in early March. Eagle Optics exhibits at this unmatched global gathering of outdoor enthusiasts every year.

When showing binoculars to paddlers, they naturally ask if it is waterpoof. A simple answer of "Yes, this is waterproof and fog proof" doesn't fully explain how tough these optics are for use on the water. Many people will think a waterproof binocular means it can get a little wet. In reality, waterproof binoculars are built to take a dunk in the river. Preventing water and grit from entering the internal mechanics of the binocular is accomplished with tight O-ring seals and nitrogen-purging. Eagle Optics is one of over 200 vendors at this novel and amazing event and will bring great waterproof and fog proof compact and full-sized binoculars for you to try out and buy at our booth.

Come, gain a wealth of educational information

Canoecopia's humble beginnings began in 1976 as a sidewalk sale for the paddlesport icon, Rutabaga. The estimated 20,000 convention visitors can take in educational information from multiple speakers on a fascinating array of subjects. A few of the educational topics include:

  • Adaptive paddling for disabilities
  • Traditional and pain-free portaging
  • Paddling and recreational kayaking for women
  • Planning paddle trips for after work
  • Fishing for dummies

In addition, outfitters and other professionals will present their experiences on trips throughout North America and in far-ranging areas such as South Africa, Ireland, and Siberia.

Just as Rutabaga is known for their expertise in paddlesports, Eagle Optics is widely recognized as the sport optics specialists. Visit us at Canoecopia for the best binoculars on the water.
