If you're doing any big water tandem canoeing you won't want to leave home without some flotation. These Infinity Center floats fit in all whitewater tandem boats (except those with upright bracing). Cut wider at the middle than the ends to conform to most canoes.
  • These bags are made from 70 Denier Urethane coated Nylon giving you amazing toughness and resistance to abrasion and UV rays.
  • Large dump valve is great for quickly inflating and deflating your bags.
  • Fully inflated dimensions: 49.5"L x 27.5"D x 32.5"W
  • Lifetime warranty.
To determine the correct size of float bag for your boat, measure the inside compartment and order a bag that is slightly larger in dimensions to fill the space in your boat completely.

  • NRS Canoe Center Float

    Q:

    I am looking for a canoe center flotation bag that can be inflated quickly using a hand pump similar to those that are used to fill air mattresses. I would like to know what type of inflation valve this bag has.

    Regards,

      A:

      As you look at the photo of the float, the dark tube bottom center has a twist valve for mouth inflation. To its right is a dump valve to which you can insert a pump adapter for quick volume inflation.

      A:

      This bag has the small twist type tube filler that is used to top it off. It also has a 3/4" or so pop off fill opening that can be used with a foot pump or other pump with the right tube adaptor. Most pumps come with an assortment of tube tips, most likely one will fit. Sometimes if I don't have the right tip I use a smaller one and make it fit by wrapping electrical tape around it until it reaches the right diameter. I install the bag by filling it with the pump through the big hole but not very tight, then lacing it in and then blow it up drum tight through the tube filler.

      Hello the float bag has a valve similar to an air matress. It needs high
      volume low pressure air. I have also used a leaf blower.Hope this helps.

      I'm not sure about inflating anything quickly with a hand pump, but the
      center bag from NRS is great (the bow and stern bags too). I used the
      bag on the Deschutes River with a hand pump and it took awhile to
      inflate, but it is the center bag (a large volume). Most of the time on
      the Rogue River, I use an electric pump that can be used from my car's
      lighter (we forgot it on the Deschutes trip). The inflation valve is
      big enough to accommodate all types of male adapters. I've had this
      bag for at least 5 years and it is still like new. I would buy this bag
      again.

              Comments about NRS Canoe Center Float:

              I've had this bag for a year now and it's great. It takes up a huge amount of space that would otherwise be water if you catch a rapid the wrong way or dump. This means the boat stays more controllable when you take on water and if you do dump you're less likely to pin your boat or have it dragged away under water. Even if you're just doing your local Class I-II rivers, it can make a huge difference to how easily you recover from a spill and make races more enjoyable. This bag fits perfectly in an Old Town Penobscot 17 or Discovery 15 9, probably most other canoes.
              Hints:
              Be sure to put webbing across the top, when the boat fills up, the bag has a trememdous amount of lifting force and you want to keep that in the boat. My current setup has webbing plus the bag is attached at 4 corners.
              Make sure you have a bailer at each end of the boat or put a plastic pipe or spare paddle under the length of the bag to even out any water. If you take on a lot of water and only bail out one end, the boat will seesaw and sink the other end.

                  Comments about NRS Canoe Center Float:

                  Corners are nicely made and grommeted; fabric somewhat light in weight but seems tough. Overall it seems well made, but after just one use it's still way too early to tell. Kind of silly that NRS asks for feedback on a product a month after shipping it, when its true quality will only be revealed after a year (at least) of use.
