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:how much does the whole thing weigh?Asked on 1/6/2013 by Donna from Canada
A:The whole package weighs less than two pounds. For rescue this is a
secondary device as I use a normal throwbag as the primary tool. For
recreation/kayaking I use it as my primary as it is available outside the
cockpit of the boat.
I have added two locking carabiners to the package, via the gear loops to
aid in building a mechanical advantage system with the line. I never get
near the water without it!

Comments about NRS Guardian Waist Throw Bag:
Great bag that is so easy to access and easy to throw it's hard to miss your target. The only downfall would be getting used to stuffing your bag it's a small bag with a small opening so it's defiantly a slow process at first but I got used to it. Then putting the bag back into its holder that sits around your waist was hard to do when it was on, but if there was someone close by to help then the task was done quickly. So overall a wonderful throw bag just a bit fiddly.
