NRS Pro Rescue Throw Bag
Item: 45102.01 | Product Description »
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.
|Load Max:||5239 lbs. (22.2 kN)|
Made of highly visible and durable Cordura, NRS throw bags quickly secure to D-rings, boat frames or canoe thwarts with quick-release 1" straps. Internal flotation and floating rescue rope keep our Rescue Bags on top of the water, while polyethylene-sheathed grab loop makes it super quick and easy to hook on a carabiner. 2" mesh panel for better drainage and reduced dry time. Barrel-lock drawstring incorporated in a flared nylon top for smoother throws, plus easy reloading and closure. Pro models include reflective ticking on the black webbing along the sides for increased visibility. A convenient loop and "cup" hold a glow stick or "chem light".
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.

Q:We use throw bags, and leave them at our docks, will this bag stand up to staying out in the sun and weather year round?Asked on 5/5/2013 by Randy from Far Southern Illinois
We just completed a circumnavigation in our sailboat. Our throw bag hung on our pushpit rail fully exposed to the tropical sun for over 18 months. It faded slightly but is still fully functional. I hope this helps answer your question.

A:Randy, no fabric will stand up to Ol' Man Sunshine indefinitely. You can retard the damage by treating the bag with 303 Protectant, Item # 1909 a couple/three times a year. Or, house the bag in a sun shelter.Answered on 5/5/2013 by Clyde from NRS

Comments about NRS Pro Rescue Throw Bag:
This bag is awesome! It fits perfectly behind my seat or in my drybag. I also carry a smaller Throwbag in my Vest for quick swimmer rescue but the NRS bag is perfect for long throws and extractions. Its rating is over 5grand so you don't have to worry whether it will perform well or not. I recommend this bag for serious creek boaters who are trained in SWR and the extraction methods that go along with IV-V+. Don't worry about the price because this is the best 75' spectra rope on the market today.
