Whitewater safety is a serious matter. The NRS Standard Rescue Throw Bag is an excellent tool for protecting you and your buddies in swiftwater emergency situations.
  • Rugged Cordura® bag is tough as nails and comes in two high visibility colors.
  • 2" mesh panel for better drainage and reduced dry time.
  • The 3/8" polypropylene rope is yellow for high visibility.
  • The rope has a 1,900 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.
  • An elastic loop and 'pocket' will hold a glow stick or "chem light" for low light rescues.
  • 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.

Great Bag

By canoesports

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Good Materials
  • Reliable

Cons

  • Large Loops

Best Uses

  • Canoeing

Comments about NRS Standard Rescue Throw Bag:

Hand entanglement, the large loops on bag and line permit a swimmer or rescuer to put their hand through the loop. New bags need to have the loops retied small enough to prevent a swimmers hand from going through.

          Comments about NRS Standard Rescue Throw Bag:

          A reasonable price for the features. It throws as expected and appears to be constructed to endure many years.
          I'll likely add the snag plate as I'll feel a bit silly if it is needed later. It would be great it that would be a optional/reduced-price buy bundled with the throw bag.

            We took our new throw bag on a float trip to the Dean river in B.C. and it worked beautifully. Rope was easily loaded into bag and deployed evenly. Great product!

                A:

                Just estimating from memory, about 7" diameter, and 12" long?

                A:

                Hi Thomas! This is the standard size bag used with Commercial rafting companies. Due to my 18 years experience Guiding rafts commercially and privately, it's easier to throw and catch this size / weight bag in all situations, not to mention that due to the size it is much easier to reload the rope into the bag when needed. The bag length is 12", diameter 6", 75' rope. Great for rafting! This bag is too large if you are a kayaker.

                bag dimensions are 13 inches by 6 inches. It will pack down to 10 inches
                long, and the width will spread to 7 inches

                Bigger than I anticipated - or really wanted. It's 12" long and 5" in
                diameter.

                This is a great throw bag. It's rugged and easy to use. I've had mine for
