How To: Stuff a Rescue Throw Bag (3:49)

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.

      A:

      ~400 grams or 0.9 pounds (weighed with a luggage scale that has limited precision).
      throws very easily - I take mine pack rafting as well as with the bigger boats.

      A:

      I use mine in my IK and it is definitely compact enough, where I roll it up with the boat at the end of a trip. Have it stashed next to my seat and it doesn't get in the way of paddling at all. Haven't used it for rescue yet, but I think it would do great.

    The Wedge throw bag is a great fit for a whitewater boat or personal carry, my 75' throw bag takes up so much space where as this smaller bag fits easily behind the back band and you don't have to wrestle it out of its storage space which I think is a real safety feature in is own right. Even though it is small with 55' feet of line it is an appropriate size for many rivers, and most kayakers I know are capable of throwing it far enough to use all of it's 55' of range, not the case with the larger heavier 75' lines which many are incapable of throwing it far enough to reach its maximum distance should it be required. A great product in a good size at a reasonable price. I liked it so much I purchased another for my paddling partner, because it will not be my throw bag that rescues me, but it could be hers.

    I work for a whitewater rafting company on the Ocoee River and we got 4 of these for new guides. In three months all 4 broke, because the bottom grommet rips through the bag, so the bag and the rope are no longer connected. I only took mine down the river one trip and it already pulled through and I never even threw it. I like NRS throw bags, but this is not their best product.

        I bought this for a recent kayaking trip to Canada. Canadian Coast Guard requires that all vessels carry a rescue throw line and this small, lightweight item filled the bill.

                Lightweight and compact makes it easy to stash in a playboat. No excuses for not bringing it along on any trip. Great line for drying out gear at the end of the day.
