            I read a lot of reviews, but along with the description I thought a medium would just be great for the 12' otter. It fits, but at the takeout you don't want to be Houdini!! Get a large for the 12'. above that I don't know...

                Very nice, durable bag. Mesh edges mean water doesn't live in your bag--it can drain out, or evaporate. One suggestion: Go one size big. If you have an IK, get the Medium. If you have a 12' boat, get the 13'-14' bag, or large. I'm sure it's possible to get the boat into the bag denoted for a particular size, but I think it could be a bit frustrating. Particularly in cold weather. My Hyside Mini Max fits very nicely into a large bag. It doesn't swim around, and I don't have to drive myself nuts trying to get it to stay in a configuration which would fit into the medium. Not to take anything at all from the boat bag itself--convenient straps and handles, bomb-proof design. Good stuff, Maynard!

                  I have a question about the Medium sized NRS Boat bag. Does it also have backpack straps on it? It's confusing when looking at the photos provided. It looks as if only the IK has backpack straps, but the description doesn't say. Thanks.

                  I have an Intex Seahawk 2 (about 10' length). That should fit nicely in an medium bag, right? If I want to add couple of life vests, the inflatable seats and maybe the oars, should I go with a large?

                    A:

                    I can only guess that yes, it would probably fit your boat.
                    I have an Intex Mariner 3 boat, which is also just under 10' in length. but
                    has a hard bottom floor which takes up a lot of packing space. My boat
                    packs at almost ~70 lbs while your boat is about 1/3 of that. While I could
                    probably squeeze my boat into the medium bag it would be very tights and
                    too heavy for my to carry in one bag. so I store my main boat piece in the
                    NRS bag and the rest of the pieces (the seats, floor and oars) in a second
                    bag so that I can distribute the weight and carry them easier.
                    And as a side note: the NRA boat bag is really a great bag. It's sturdy,
                    durable and breathable. Good luck and happy boating.

                    Gigi, look in the Sizing tab for the capacities of the different bags. Then when you measure your gear you'll be able to make a good choice.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.
