I've carried my 16 pound 10.5' hybrid Hornbeck into the remotest western Adirondack ponds, with full backpack (knupak) and canoe both mounted on my back without issue. Longer canoes would have difficulty maneuvering a bushwhack in thick brush or closely spaced trees, as evidenced by a friend of mine on a trip with me. I could travel in a mostly straight line path, he could not without a lot of wiggling to get through on a longer path.
