          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.

          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.

                  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!

                  Works well, Not for larger boats

                        I have a Dagger Legend Canoe (very equivalent to a Mad River Explorer) and while these bags work fine they are too small to fill the bow and stern properly. If you are trying to outfit a large canoe I would suggest looking elsewhere.
                        That said it functions fine and seems durable. The self sealing valve is a blessing once its inflated but can be a pain while you are trying to inflate it. Also, the opening does not mate with an NRS raft pump.

                          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?

                            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.

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

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.
