    Clip the NRS Compact Rescue Throw Bag to your boat to ensure you never find yourself without a life line.

    The NRS Compact Rescue Throw Bag keeps 70 feet of floating polypro line clipped to your kayak at all times, so you have it close at hand when someone has to wet exit. The bright yellow line is easily seen in the water and flying through the air when you toss it to your friend. A reinforced loop on both ends of the NRS Compact Rescue Throw Bag gives you a solid grip when the line comes tight and you have to reel in your pal.

    Think You May Need It? ...You Need It

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this throw bag to have as a spare on my 16' raft. I have taken it on two multi-day trips, and ended up using it both times. Once to throw to a swimmer in swift water, and another to help get a boat unstuck from a rock. Both times the throw bag worked exactly as it should, and proved it lightness and durability.

    This is one of those items that you think is probably a good idea, and can end up being the thing that saves you when you need it most.

    Good first impressions

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Recently received my order of the NRS Compact Rescue Throw Bag. It was everything I anticipated save for one small detail. There's a nice buoyant foam disc at the base of the throw bag, and as one can tell from photos the throw line and bag itself are high visibility colors. The Compact does not have the elastic retention loops for a chem light that NRS's standard throw bag features. However there's more than enough room in the interior of the bag to include one. This units size makes it perfect for someone on a self guided kayak trip with a friend. This device is a tool and as such its function in the field is dependent on the user. Realize you're going to be throwing it ahead of and through a moving target caught in swift water. Practice! Rig it up on your PFD as you would in the field, then go out in your back yard and practice. Become accurate and proficient in the use of this throw bag long before you need it.

    I hope I never have to use it.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been out with my two kayaks a couple of times. I bought this because I like to be safe when having fun. I haven't needed to use this yet, but I feel better knowing that I have it. Particularly when I go with people outside my immediate family that I am responsible for like kids and older relatives.

    A necessity

      A must-have for any kayak, raft, or river-faring vessel. Compact, easy-to throw, and bright color allows for quick identification. Practice throwing and rescuing your buddies before you have to use it for real.

      Solid Construction

        I use this bag on my little Pack cat on rivers down in Mexico. It certainly has seen it fair share of abuse, getting drug on travertine dams and through pokey plants on portage. The bag is soild construction and has lasted much longer than my last rope. Certainly spend some time tossing this bag around the park before hitting the water with it. I also agree with Kelly and jreeder, it's all about the stuff to get the distance.

        Durable Rescue Bag and rope.

          Again to shadow Kelly, be sure you stuff the rope into the bag correctly, this will make all the difference in the world for distance. One thing to keep in mind when you have a throw rope on board, always make sure you have a river knife for when you get in those tricky situations and need to cut your rope! So far my throw bag has had over 150 days on the river and other than fading still going super strong!

          A must have for all boaters

            If you stuff this rope correctly before you throw it, it's easy to get great distance and accuracy. If you stuff it wrong, it will get tangled-- but that's not the rope's fault.
            These things last forever, too. I definitely wouldn't go boating without one.
