HORRIBLE

By Brendan

from Maine

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Light weight
  • Nice Valves

Cons

  • Extremely Fragile
  • Thin Material

Best Uses

  • Recreational Paddlers

Bottom Line: They work for a short time, but are made with a fragile, thin material, and are more expensive than alternative companies.

The first couple times I rigged these up I was psyched. They look awesome and fit well. They were the first float bags I've used.

On their third or fourth use my partner tore one of the corners out of one of them very easily. He rigged it and then gave a light tug on the D-ring corner and ripped it right out. Bag is no good anymore. He definitely did not pull hard at all. I can't imagine what would happen in a water scenario with pretty aggressive forces.

We decided to buy some bags from Wenoah. They're a little heavier, obviously more rugged, and $5-10 cheaper per bag.

I Don't normally post reviews, but I was so disappointed with these that I just had to warn others before buying them.

3 D end float

By chicken of the sea

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Very Sturdy Fabric

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Day Trips
    • Touring

    Comments about NRS Canoe 3-D End Float:

    Very good buoyancy bag for a full-sized bow or stern canoe or kayak. It fills the space and gives plenty of buoyancy in case of a swamping or capsize.

    Attachment failure

    By Blue Tandem

    from Corvallis, OR

    About Me Advanced

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Inflates-deflates Quickly

    Cons

    • Not Durable

    Best Uses

    • Flat Water Paddling

    Comments about NRS Canoe 3-D End Float:

    The rigging D-rings are insufficiently attached for whitewater paddling. The front ring ripped out on only our second outing with this product. The attachment let go in a rather insignificant, class-2 rapid.

        Much better than the old ones

        By The Right Reverend Cotz

        from Shenandoah Valley, VA

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Easy To Attach
        • Improves Kayak Function
        • Rugged

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about NRS Canoe 3-D End Float:

            I use the end bags in my canoes for that extra bit of insurance. The old ones NRS made were a flimsy material that did not hold up well, and the grommets were poorly attached. They did not survive driving down the highway, let alone swimming a CIII. I had two sets of the old variety and lost them all. These new ones are made of what seems to be a much tougher material, and the tie down points are sewn into the material rather than glued to the outside. All in all, a much better product than what used to be offered. Well done, NRS!

              Q:

              Will this work in the bow and stern of an Old Town Penobscot 16 canoe? If not, is there another model that will work?

                It should work fine. We use them in our Esquif 17ft Prospecteur.

                A:

                As long as there's not a bulkhead hiding some flotation in the ends, then
                they should conform to fit the available space. You will need to tie them
                down to keep them in place.

                Don't see why it wouldn't fit, I have an Old Town Camper 16. I think
                the dimensions of this float are available from the NRS website.

                Hello JB,
                The model will fit in the bow and stern of your Penobscot canoe; they are form fitting when blown up. The only problem that you will have is if the bags are not secured, they will float away when or if you capsize. I hope this helps.

                JB, the fully inflated dimensions of the float bags are there on the product page. Please compare that to the space you're wanting to fill.

                I cannot say for sure but after looking at the canoe on-line, I would think
                so. The bag would most likely form to the canoe.
