The NRS Pro Compact Throw Bag is an excellent choice for anyone planning for swiftwater rescue work where light weight and a strong rope are desirable. The yellow Cordura® bag with 70' of 1/4" Dyneema® line rated at 2495 pounds is easy to stow and highly visible.
  • 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 keeps our rescue bags on top of the water where it's needed.
  • The mesh panel gives good drainage and reduced rope dry time.
  • Barrel-lock drawstring incorporated in a flared nylon top for smoother throws, plus easy reloading and closure.
  • Pro models include reflective tape on the bag for increased visibility.
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.

    Needs thicker rope

      Best Uses

      Comments about NRS Pro Compact Rescue Throw Bag:

      The bag is great. Stores easily in a bungee cord attached on front pillar of kayak for easy access.
      Rope diameter is too small for swimmers to hold in fast water. 3/8inch diameter is a better option.
      I have removed the supplied 1/4inch rope and replaced with 3/4inch spectra.

      Service and delivery comments:

      NRS service is fantastic!

        Comments about NRS Pro Compact Rescue Throw Bag:

        Though still working on the "best place" to keep it (under spray skirt, b/w legs vs behind seat vs "on top", it's size is great, 75' distance works. We'll see if the grommets pull out, but unfurls nicely.

            This is my go to rope when things are going sideways fast. I love the way this thing unspools so easily. I keep mine between my knees in my boat so it is quickly accessible.

                  Phil, the bag weighs 1.2 pounds and the majority of that is the rope.

                  No, it's not too cumbersome, but I can't get it to fit in my astral vest.
                  I can only store it in my boat, so there's that.

                How does dyneema rope compare with polypro rope?

                  A:

                  Dyneema is a LOT stronger than polypro, it also floats and dries quickly.
                  very high abrasion resistance and remains stable under severe sunlight exposure.
                  great rescue rope.

                  A:

                  Both float, but Dyneema is much stronger. Take a look at this article for the details - http://www.nrsweb.com/tech_talk/Know_The_Ropes.asp - The core of Dyneema is made of the Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. It has an outer sheath of polypro for grip and flotation.

                Since this Throw Bag is a Compact version, will the "Wild Water Supply Snag Plate" work with it.

                  A:

                  The Snag Plate is 4 1/4" in diameter and so is the Throw Bag. It'll be a snug fit but should work.

                  A:

                  No, it's too large to fit inside a pocket. It's roughly the size of a
                  water bottle.

                  A:

                  I don't think it will. I wear the Astral Green jacket so it is not a perfect comparison but it would not fit in my jacket. The wedge throw bag might fit but even it will make the jacket fell somewhat bulky. I wear the guardian waist throw bag in-stead of putting a throwbag in my pfd. Hope that helps.

                  I think overheard of it being done.   Maybe have to park the car on ir overnight shorten the rope? I also have the Salamander. Think  it is smaller and was less expensive. I can measure the 2 when I get home.  ****@***.***
