The NRS Compact Rescue Throw Bag is an excellent choice for swiftwater emergency work. Its compact shape and light weight are perfect for kayakers.
  • 2" mesh panel for better drainage and reduced dry time.
  • The 70' of 1/4" polypropylene rope is yellow for high visibility.
  • The rope has a 950 pound tensile strength and it floats for good visibility on the water.
  • A barrel-lock drawstring is incorporated in a flared nylon top for smoother throws, plus easy reloading and closure.
  • Internal foam flotation keeps the bag on the top of the water where you need it for rescue.
Rope knots reduce tensile strength. for this reason, we make no claims regarding a rescue bag's strength. Maximum load indicated is for the rope alone.

In this instructional video from NRS, we show you how to re-stuff your rescue throw bag so it will be ready to go when you need it most. A poorly stuffed rope bag can not only be frustrating, it can be dangerous. Properly stuffing your throw rope keeps it free of knots and tangles that can impede a swift-water rescue while whitewater kayaking, rafting or canoeing.

              Good Rope in a an easy to throw package. My only complaint is that the orange dye fades quickly in the sun, detracting from its high visibility.

                    Q:

                    I am replacing a friends lost throw bag. The bag was a NRS with a "static Line". Which of you ropes is considered static?

                    Cheers

                      A:

                      A static rope is one that will stretch very little. Our bags with Dyneema rope, Items # 45101.01 and 45102.01, fall in that category.

                      A:

                      I think most/all throw ropes are static line as that is what you need when ‘pendulum-ing’ someone to shore.
                      In contrast a dynamic line is used in climbing: it is slightly elastic so that when you fall and it is attached to you it flexes/stretches slightly so you don’t jerk to a halt at the bottom.
