A super light piece of safety equipment when river rafting mishaps occur.
ULTRALIGHT SAFETY GEAR

Further proof that you can go ultralight without skimping on safety. Now you won’t have to think twice about being fully prepared on a packrafting trip where swift water rescues are a possibility. The River Rescue Throw Bag won’t weigh you down on your approach, and thanks to its advanced Dyneema® construction, it repels water and won’t soak out. Designed to be easy to wear as a waist belt whether you’re in your boat or out scouting, a rescue is always just the slide of a drawstring away. Built burly from premium materials so light they actually float, the River Rescue Throw Bag is also tear and abrasion resistant. Lighter than the competition, even with 10-feet more rope.

Throws fast, far, and accurate

Great throw bag, low profile and compact design throws like a bullet. Slightly more expensive than the competition but when you take into consideration the free dyneema fanny pack that fits your favorite bottle of bourbon, totally worth it.

Great for Packrafting

Great bags, I’m going to only share the improvements I think could be made to make it even better (we love them). The outer bag needs a couple more drain holes, maybe not all in a perfectly strait line. The inner bag should be modified to hold the figure eight inside with two rather than one hole so the bite can be low profile but still clipable from the outside - this makes factory knot tying harder, but for the end user it greatly reduces the risk of the bag getting snagged and will also help it through better.

Again GREAT throw bag, those two small tweaks could make it even better.

Great piece of equipment

This is a great piece of equipment. It is lightweight and well made. I haven't had to use it yet but when I do I know it will perform well.

Happy to buy from a small business.

Quick release on waist band?

The bag would be fantastic if you could add a quick release to the waist band. Any thoughts on this addition?

Throw Rope

The throw rope is amazing, although I wish it had a quick release buckle. Besides that, it is easy to throw, skips nicely on the water, like a skipping stone, and the 70ft really make a difference.
