Commercial outfitters swear that NRS Barrel pumps are built to last, get wet, and get used.
  • The NRS Barrel pump combines a wide base for sure footing while inflating a raft.
  • The 6.5' flexible hose tucks into the webbing carry handle for storing on your raft.
  • This 5" diameter pump stands 2.5' high and has a stroke volume of 2.03 Gal (7.7 liters).
  • This hand pump does not have a check valve. A check valve is necessary on military valves that don't have a one-way inflation feature.
  • There is a spare O-ring gasket in the bottom of the pump cylinder. If you need to re-lubricate the pump, we recommend lithium grease.
  • 5-year warranty.

NRS 5" Barrel Pump (1:03)

The NRS 5" Barrel Pump has been a favorite of outfitters and private boaters for years. This rugged, high-volume pump delivers over 2 gallons of air per stroke to quickly inflate rafts, catarafts, inflatable kayaks, SUP boards and that big air mattress you have! The 6.5' hose easily reaches all your valves. Easy to use, built to last.

How To: Maintain the NRS Barrel Pump (3:45)

The NRS 5" Barrel Pump is "built to last, get wet, and get used". It's a workhorse that private boaters and outfitters have come to love. With an output of 1.8 gallons of air per stroke, it makes short work of inflating rafts, catarafts and inflatable kayaks (IKs).

      Comments about NRS 5" Barrel Pump:

      This is a replacement pump of the same kind and when I tested it out I was pleasantly surprised on how much easier it worked than the old one. Another great experience with the NRS staff.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The pump came in excellent condition in expected delivery time.

      Works but could use improvement

          Comments about NRS 5" Barrel Pump:

          The pump has great volume and gets a boat full and to pressure quickly. When in use, mine starts howling at least twice a year and I have to pop the top and spray lithium grease in to get it smooth and quiet again. I also think it's too bad that the hose doesn't slide inside the handle tube for stowage, Would that have been so hard to design for? I used hose clamps to attach a larger piece of PVC to the handle so I can slide the hose in there when not in use. I have not broken the feet yet but I am pretty careful because they do seem thin and a tad delicate.

          Been using the pump a few times per year for 6 years, still pumps well.

            Comments about NRS 5" Barrel Pump:

            Works great and moves lots of air. But it's a bit bulky for carrying in the raft and a few parts have broken. The strap pulled out right after I got it. I put it back but it just came out again. Then the hose broke off the pump at the base. AND, I wish it could be used to deflate.

                      We suggest lithium grease. The blue marine-variety holds up best.

                      I keep mine in a tall, narrow dry bag on the raft while on the river.
                      Worked perfectly following a flip in Lava Falls on the Grand Canyon. It is
                      a great pump that has the ability to inflate a 16ft NRS raft from start to
                      finish in less than 15 minutes if the need a rises.

                      Yes, it can get wet. Just be sure there's no water in the pump barrel or hose before you start pumping.

                      Just finished 75 mi. float on the John Day with this pump in the boat. It
                      worked great, even after getting wet. Used it every day to inflate air
                      matresses in camp, top off the raft, and get the campfire going. Great
                      pump.

                    Can this pump be used for SUP inflation? We need to get to at least 12 psi.

                      A:

                      This pump would not be the best for your SUP inflation. It puts out a lot of volume, but consequently it would be hard to get up over 6-7 psi with it. The K-Pump 220, Item # 1717, does a great job on SUPs.

                      A:

                      Great pump for your Redshank, Pre-1999 Avon used military-style valves, in which case you'll want the Barrel Pump with the check valve, Item # 1709. Later Avons should have Leafield valves. The end of the pump hose will fit in these valves, but an adapter gives you a more hassle-free fit. If you have Leafield C7 valves, Item # 14821 is the adapter. If you have Leafield B7 or military valves, get Item # 1716.9.

                      A:

                      The check valve is needed for valves like military valves, that don't have a one-way inflation feature. The Leafield C7 valves on your Osprey don't need the check valve.
