Your car comes with lots of safety features, your touring boat doesn't. The NRS Basic Touring Safety Kit gives you four items that you shouldn't boat without - a whistle, paddle float, bilge pump, and boat sponge.
  • The Nexus Whistle is a pea-less design that is ideal for water environments. It's loud, has a built-in clip and a hole for lanyard attachment.
  • The NRS Paddle Float is the best on the market. You only need to inflate one chamber when you need to rescue yourself; we add a second chamber for safety and dependability. Each chamber displaces 7 liters - almost 2 gallons.
  • The NRS Bilge Pump is a heavy-duty pump, moving 8 gallons a minute to dry your boat out in a hurry. Comes with its own foam float that saves it if lost overboard.
  • The Boat Sponge takes out the last bit of moisture and the sand and silt that the Bilge Pump doesn't reach.

      Comments about NRS Basic Touring Safety Kit:

      NRS is not exaggerating when it claims this paddle float is "the best on the market".  At 6'2" and 225 lbs., foam and single chamber inflatable paddle floats simply did not provide adequate buoyancy for me.  I purchased a competitor's lower priced dual chamber paddle float, but returned it on the same day due to its poor quality.  I then took a chance with the on-line purchase of this safety kit and I am thoroughly pleased with the result.  The quality is excellent. And after inflating both float chambers, I was easily able to perform self rescues.  I highly recommend this product, especially to those of us who are "oversized".

        Comments about NRS Basic Touring Safety Kit:

        Tested the paddle float to ensure it held air with no leaks. The bilge pump received use on several occasions, pumped fine and nothing broke.
        The whistle made a racket as expected.
        The sponge needed several saturations to become absorbent as it possible.

            Comments about NRS Basic Touring Safety Kit:

            This is a very good combination of necessary safety items for any kayak owner. I looked at a competitor's product, which was a little less money but featured a paddle float with only one chamber. This one has two chambers. In using the float, I only needed to inflate one side -- it worked fine without both being inflated. But the second chamber is a nice backup feature in case the other is punctured or otherwise fails. The float also has reflective borders making it easier to see it in the water. The bilge pump works great and has its own float. The competitor's package included a pump which did not appear to have a flotation ring. The entire kit came with two separate mesh bags with velcro closures, to be used for storage.

                My wife and I have recently taken up kayaking and we tend to pick up those safety and comfort things we feel are essential, like the safety kit. This was a peace of mind purchase for a good price.
