In your boat or scouting a rapid, the NRS Pro Guardian Waist Throw Bag is always there when you need it.
  • Features an internal throw rope in an inner bag that pulls completely free from the waist belt for a smooth safety toss.
  • Pro model includes 55 feet of extra-strong 1/4" Dyneema® rope, with a maximum tensile strength of 2,495 pounds.
  • The Guardian clips securely around your waist with an adjustable belt and a quick release buckle.

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.

    Q:

    Does this work with a rescue belt?

      A:

      Not sure I understand your question. You could certainly clip it into a rescue belt. This is a great throw bag because you have it around your waist all the time, all the time.

    Q:

    what is inside the zipped bag, just the rope or a throw bag stuffed with rope, can you explain how this is deployed? Open the flap on the lid, unzip the zipper, or pull out the throw bag or the rope?? Is there flotation as part of the outside bag, does the bag un-clip from the belt? I am not asking in what circumstances this product is used, just how is designed to work.

      A:

      There is an inner bag containing the 55' of rope that you pull out after opening the hook-and-loop flap and at least partially opening the zipper. The outer bag and belt remain around your waist. You deploy the inner bag like any other throw bag, and yes there is flotation in the inner bag.

    Q:

    Should a skinny person like me cut off some of the extra strap for the belt? It always gets in the way. If so, how much of a tail should I leave?

      A:

      That depends on if you ever lend out your gear. If you size it to you
      (that's what I did to mine) than you may limit the size of people that can
      borrow the throw bag. If you never loan out your gear, then by all means
      cut the belt down to size. Remember to melt the cut edges with a lighter to
      prevent fraying and you will be good to go!

      A:

      The belt is long to accommodate all body types. There's no problem shortening it. Leave enough length to cover any layers you may have on. Heat treat the cut edge to prevent unraveling. Just remember, shortening it too much will prevent others from wearing it.

      Longer than 40", but I'm not sure exactly. They seem to give you plenty of extra.

      The belt is approximately 52" long. The buckle end is adjustable for a shorter length.

    Narrow bag for re-stuffing

    By Steve

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy To Use

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about NRS Pro Guardian Waist Throw Bag - Closeout:

        I used this throwbag for about 5 years but replaced it with a different bag for this one reason: the bag is too narrow to re-stuff quickly. Sure, you hardly ever need to re-stuff your bag super speedily, but this simply became a nuisance after practice sessions or re-stuffing after letting the rope dry.

        NRS if you read this, find a way to make the bag wider at the opening perhaps with a flared design that compresses after stuffing.

        Needed another throw rope and decided to try one that can be easily worn, not attached to my kayak. I wore this under my spray skirt and after some water time forgot it was there, so no discomfort. Have not throw it yet but the carry bag has velcro flap and seems to be quick access and good quality materials.

          Comments about NRS Pro Guardian Waist Throw Bag - Closeout:

          I was a little skeptical about the light design of this throw bag, but after one trip I'm a big fan. With the bag around your waist you aren't fumbling around trying to undo that old bulky throw bag from the bilges of your boat. I chose to orient the bag over my stomach rather than on the small of my back (I know I'll take some heat because the quick release buckle isn't quite as accessible - but I figured the throw bag was more important than the red release knob - I practiced and didn't have any problems). I saw several commercial guides float by wearing the same bag both ways. As I maneuvered into the take-out at Sheep Gulch on the Snake River in Alpine Canyon, I had an adult passenger slip into the water on purpose (thinking he would simply swim ashore), the eddy caught him and recirculated him out into the main current and downstream he headed - ship the oars, pull the cover flap open, the bag slips out easily with a great little handle - and off it sails with good distance to my swimmer. It was fluid, easy and best of all I could keep my eyes on target. Glad to have added this to my gear! Now the old bag will stay in the bilge as a backup.

          Great product. Strong and well made. My primary use is for rescue in swift water. The throw bag really flies and is nibble. The rope is a great size and easy to handle.

            I am whitewater guide and I love this throw bag.`The belt buckle is very secure,so it stays in place all day. I do not have anything but praise for this product. If you're rafting you should have one on your waist.
