    Comments about NRS Boat Bag for Rafts,IKs and Cats:

    I bought the large bag for my Dave Scadden, 14' boat and dropstich floor. It's a bit tricky when the pvc is cold, but I successfully folded and fit a wet boat and floor in 40 degree F temps into the bag - it took three people, but it worked. Makes it much easier for 1 person carrying of boat and floor together. I like the protection it offers and that it has vents. Overall pretty solid, I just think I should have gotten the XL for a little easier loading.

      Comments about NRS Boat Bag for Rafts,IKs and Cats:

      This is convenient for transporting your IK in your vehicle, en route to a camp ground or other lodging; and, absolutely essential if your intend to hike into a remote river for a few days of self-supported paddling (i.e. without multiple portages in and out). The shoulder straps / hip band are comparable to a quality back pack; and, if you're not packing a tandem IK, there is room for some gear in the Bag, itself, along with the possibility of securing other items to the top and bottom as you would with an actual back pack. The only considerations are: how minimal your camping set-up is; and, how much weight you are willing / able to carry.

                A:

                I do not know if it comes with a bag, HOWEVER, if it doesn't, I recommend
                you look at the NRS KOSS Kitchen bag instead of an NRS boat bag.
                http://www.nrs.com/product/2921/nrs-koss-kitchen-bag
                Of course check the dimensions. I have a 16' inflatable SOAR canoe and it
                fits the kitchen bag better than it fits ANY NRS boat bag. Its also easier
                to pack in a car or truck.

                A:

                Hmm, Gator, Saturn doesn't currently list a 12' boat in their whitewater rafts; perhaps yours is an earlier series. But a 12' boat should easily fit in the XL, and may fit in one of the smaller bags. Look at the dimensions under the Sizing tab to find the best fit.

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                Aaron, take a look in the Sizing tab for the dimensions of the bags. You'll probably need 2 IK, 1 M and a L. However, those suggested boat sizes were based on our Hypalon boats that roll up very compactly. If you have another makers boats, say in PVC or urethane, they may not be as compact. Safest is to roll your boats and compare the measurements.

                The Aire Tributary is 13ft long. I use this for my NRS solo IK that is 10ft, and there is lots of extra room. I put ropes and other gear in the bag too. I also have a Helios two man sea Kayak, that is 13ft, and it fits fine. I would think your Aire Tributary will fit. Its a great bag, and I love the backpack straps. If it doesn't fit, I know that NRS will will work with you on the return, but I doubt you'll need it.

                Nancy, the bag weighs 4.7 pounds. Hyside says the boat weighs 47 pounds, so doesn't look like this is an option for you. How about wrapping it in a plastic tarp and securing it with NRS cam straps?
