The Bag Lady is devoted to prolonging the life and appearance of your canoe. Our boat bags are durable covers that protect the hull of your canoe from UV damage, fading, bugs, scratches, stone chips, and more when you're transporting or storing your canoe.

Previous owners attest to the benefits of protecting their canoes with the one and only Bag Lady canoe covers, reporting:

  • Less darkening and aging of Kevlar

  • Less oxidation and fading of fiberglass gelcoat

  • Less fading of Royalex

  • Less wear on wood canvas and cedar strip boats

  • Less required maintenance

  • Higher resale values

Bag Lady canoe covers are unequaled in durability and workmanship, offering a unique closure system, an impeccable fit, and top quality, Made-In-The-USA fabrics to protect your canoe.

Bag Lady canoe covers are ONLY available direct from the Bag Lady through RedLeaf Designs. Beware of imitations and look for the Bag Lady logo on your canoe cover!


Fabric Choices

Due to the diverse nature of paddlesports and the varying needs of our customers, we offer canoe covers in two materials. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with each of them before placing your order to ensure that you choose the best option for your needs. 

As always, if you have any questions or need some guidance, feel free to call us. We're always happy to speak with you!


Our most popular and budget-minded fabric is a durable, stretch polyester double-knit. It's long-wearing and great for general protection from UV damage, road dirt, bugs, strap-rub, etc. This is the fabric that you probably have in mind when you think of a Bag Lady canoe cover.

Note that polyester is not waterproof. This isn't a problem for most Royalex, fiberglass, carbon, or Kevlar boats, since the fabric breathes very well and dries quickly: water won't damage most canoes. 

However, you may want to consider WeatherMAX 3D fabric if you have a wood-canvas canoe, oiled wood gunwales or trim, or store your boat outdoors in places with lots of sun or harsh winters.  

Polyester covers are available in a range of colors and most solo (C1) and tandem (C2) covers cost $190 in a solid color. Contact us for pricing on unusually wide and three+ person canoes.

WeatherMAX 3D

WeatherMAX 3D is a premium outdoor fabric that offers the same, form-fitting stretch and exceptional fit of polyester, with a number of additional benefits:

  • Waterproof and breathable

  • Blocks 99+% of UV light for long-term UV resistance

  • Exceptionally color-fade resistant

  • HydroMAX finish for dirt and mildew resistance

  • 100% pigment solution-dyed SaturaMax fibers

It's the ultimate canoe cover fabric and will protect even the most sensitive wood-canvas and oiled wood trim canoes, while still offering the exceptional fit that comes with stretch material.

While our polyester fabric has been the mainstay of the Bag Lady canoe covers for the past 40+ years, we think that WeatherMax 3D will change that very quickly!  

The additional cost of a WeatherMAX 3D cover is well worth the investment if you want the best, possible protection or your canoe is stored outdoors. 

WeatherMAX 3D covers are available in Mist (tan) and Light Charcoal (grey). Most solo (C1) and tandem (C2) covers cost $300. Contact us for pricing on unusually wide and 3+ person canoes.
