Whitewater safety is a serious matter, but you can have some fun preparing for it. The NRS Rasta Rescue Throw Bag is a colorful, showy tool for protecting you and your buddies in swiftwater emergency situations.
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.

Comments about NRS Rasta Rescue Throw Bag:
Bought this for guiding the Kenai in Alaska from a drift boat and jet boats. Luckily I never had to use it in an actual rescue, but am confident that it would perform as I had tested it a couple of throws. Love the color scheme as it's easy to find when thrown in the boat casually. Clients love the Rasta coloring and always have something to say about it.

Q:What is the replacement schedule for this item?Asked on 6/24/2013 by Bill
A:NRS is pretty good when it comes to returning....I ordered the Rasta Bag
myself...a bit "beefier" then I had hoped...they took it back, no problem.
There was another item...the Aleutian Deck Bag.....kept that poor thing
for months....got it in Winter, "fit it" on the kayak in May...out of the
box, tags all bent up....finally got the courage to "ask" if I could
return....bingo: refund. Guess they want to keep their customers.Answered on 6/24/2013 by Anonymous
A:Not sure what you mean, Bill. If you dry the rope between uses, keep it out of the sun and don't get any cuts or tears in the rope it should last you a long, long time.Answered on 6/24/2013 by Clyde from NRS
A:Rastas never replace anything, but a prudent boater should get many years of
service from this product if properly cared for and not abused.Answered on 6/24/2013 by Anonymous
