    Q:

    This bag seem great but kind a small for large creek boat. Your video shows it fitting to Pyranha Ammo which is smaller boat.
    Do you have a plans to make this in larger size i.e. length ~40"(compare to Wildwasser overnighter large)? thanks

      A:

      The bag is a little small for my Wavesport habitat 74. However I still like it. It gives me a little more room to put the dry bags I use to hold my first aid kit/ food and camera gear behind my seat so they are easier to access.

      A:

      I use one of these stow/float bags in my large pyranha burn and it fits perfect. I look forward to getting a second. I am not sure how it would fit in a larger creek boat, but it would be nice if their were some size options.

      I use this bag in my LL Remix 69 and it holds everything I need for the day in cool weather. So it should be even more spacious in warmer weather.

      Good suggestion. I'll pass that along to the R and D folks, but at this time a larger one isn't in the works.

    Q:

    Is there a lifetime warranty on this product as it is with your "NRS Split Kayak Storage Flotation"? If not, why?

    Thank you!

      Bjorgnar, all NRS products are backed by our Rock Solid Guarantee - http://www.nrsweb.com/guarantee.asp - Rest assured that we'll stand behind the HydroLock Stow Float, or anything else you purchase from us.

      I believe NRS does have a life time warranty on most all their products. I have to honestly say NRS is one of the very vest vendors out there. Very satisfied with every product I have bought from them, and customer service is tops.

      Comments about NRS HydroLock Kayak Stow Float:

      Looking for a stern stow/float bag, you really have 2 options: NRS and Watershed. As a longtime NRS customer I decided to give their new stowbag a try as well as save a few bucks (watershed=$$$). I have been pleased to date with most NRS products I have purchased and used. This time however, I feel that NRS has fallen short with the quality of the stow bag...more so the HydroLock seal. The size and volume is great. The staps seem in the way sometimes, but no big deal. When it comes to sealing the HydroLock it seemed almost impossible most of the time. On multiday trips I would find myself struggling for 15-20 minutes sometimes just to get the things sealed shut. Sometimes I thought I would have done it and find out later in the day that it did not seal. The more I use them, the more frustrated I become with the HydroLock. I am sad to have to write a negative NRS review but I see a quality flaw here. Seeing it fail side by side to the watershed futa on a number of occasions, I shake my head thinking I should have spent the extra money and gotten the better product. Sorry NRS. I will still love and support your company, but this time you lost to Watershed. I hope that you can imporve the HydroLock seal so that down the road I can give it a 5 star review.
      Cheers!

          Comments about NRS HydroLock Kayak Stow Float:

          My wife and I recently started kayaking and we wanted to have a dry sack for some limited items, like clothing and some food. Combining the floatation device with a storage bag was ideal. Our kayaks do have some limited floatation foam in the very front and rear of the boat, but the additional floatation device gives us greater peace of mind.

              Comments about NRS HydroLock Kayak Stow Float:

              The storage bag is well made. I haven't had it stcuk in hole without me, yet, so I don't know for sure how water tight the roll up seal is.

              I ordered it to replace an old single storage bag for the rear of a large Prijon ww kayak. The Prijon has no rear pillar. The bag turned out to be about half the size I needed, however two would not fit well side by side.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The service was A+. It was a no cost exchange for an old storage bag that I had been repairing for years. The bag was also back ordered and they called every so often to let me know the status.

                  My wife and I have recently taken up kayaking and thought the idea of joining a dry storage bag for certain items with a flotation device to help the kayak float in case of tip over made sense.
