In your boat or scouting a rapid, the NRS Pro Guardian Waist Throw Bag gives you 55 feet of high-strength rope that's always there when you need it.
  • High-strength 1/4" Dyneema® rope is suitable for unpinning kayaks as well as rescuing swimmers.
  • The outer bag has a wide hook-and-loop flap and a zipper to facilitate removing the inner bag. Drainage holes in the bag expel water quickly.
  • Removable Wedge Throw Bag has foam flotation to keep it on top of the water, mesh sides for drainage and drying, and reflective taping for increased visibility.
  • A quick-release buckle on the adjustable waist belt ensures safe exit in an emergency.
  • The internal throw bag comes completely free from the waist belt.
  • Webbing loops along the belt allow you to attach carabiners.
  • 1/4" Dyneema® rope has a maximum tensile strength of 2,495 pounds.
Rope knots reduce tensile strength. For this reason, we make no claims regarding a rescue bag's strength. Maximum load indicated is for the rope alone.

How To: Stuff a Rescue Throw Bag (3:49)

In this instructional video from NRS, we show you how to re-stuff your rescue throw bag so it will be ready to go when you need it most. A poorly stuffed rope bag can not only be frustrating, it can be dangerous. Properly stuffing your throw rope keeps it free of knots and tangles that can impede a swift-water rescue while whitewater kayaking, rafting or canoeing.

      I carry the bag in the back out of the way and keep the quick release in the
      front like a belt buckle

      Answered on 9/12/2016 by Anonymous


      I think most people I've seen and worked with wear the belt storage bag to
      the rear of the body. This position keeps it out of the way and allows for
      unencumbered torso rotation. Also, and maybe most importantly, the quick
      release ball is positioned generally towards the front, should it be
      necessary to remove the bag in an emergency. Should you wish to actually
      use the throw bag, the belt is easily pulled around to the front, for
      immediate access to the throw bag stored inside. I hope this helps!
      PS: Write your name/phone number on the underneath side with a permanent
      Sharpie marker. These things have an amazing habit of getting mixed up
      and/or stolen.

    Hello. Thanks for taking my question. Does the Pro Guardian Wedge Waist Throw Bag Double as a tow rope?
    Asked on 4/20/2015 by Nick from Bowling Green, KY

      I am sure you could create a situation where the bag and waist strap could be used as a tow rope. However, in my assessment this product is not made to function as a tow rope or rescue tether. The easy to throw rope bag sits inside of the sleeve that you see in the retailer photo. Once you remove the throw bag (the sleeve and belt stay attached to the user) it
      Functions exactly as a throw bag would. If you used it as a tow rope it would end up paying out the rope's entire length and you would have 50+ feet of rope in the water. Best bet is to stick with a tow line or bungee attached to your rescue pfd. Hope that helps!

      Nick, this is a throw bag that you wear around your waist, so that it's always with you, whether you're in the boat or out of it. The throw bag itself is housed in the waist bag. You pull it out to make the throw. It's not designed to be a tow rope.
