The Guardian Bags are worn on your waist, so whether you're in your boat or scouting a rapid, the throw bag is always at your fingertips.
  • Features an internal throw rope in an inner bag that pulls completely free from the waist belt for a smooth safety toss.
  • Throw bag contains 55 feet of 1/4" polypropylene rope, with a maximum tensile strength of 950 pounds.
  • The Guardian clips securely around your waist with an adjustable belt with quick release buckle.
  • Webbing loops along the belt are provided for carabiners.
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.

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.

    What are the differences between this throw bag an the NRS Pro Guardian Waist Throw Bag?
    Asked on 1/4/2014 by Alfonso Castello from Mexico

      Using this waist bag from a kayak or raft is much quicker and safer for
      rescues. Practice with the quick release buckle prior to any river use.

      A cost of $25 and one can pull 950 lbs while the other can pull
      2495 lbs.

      Alfonso, the difference is in the rope. This bag has polypropylene rope with a maximum strength of 950 pounds. The Pro bag uses extra-strong Dyneema rope with a 2495 pound strength.

    how much does the whole thing weigh?
    Asked on 1/6/2013 by Donna from Canada

    4 answers



      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!

      I've never weighed it. It's not much though, I don't even notice when wearing it or carrying it.

      Mine weighs in at 1 pound 3.5 ounces.

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.
