The Boreal Belt Throw Bag:

  • Comes with a quick-release belt that allows you to carry the bag on your body—and easily remove it when you need to
  • Is made in Quebec by our friend Laurie Dumas of Stellar Gear
  • Contains 23m (75') of 8mm (5/16"), high quality floating rope;  the rope is great for throwing but also strong enough for unpinning boats and transportation systems
  • Is made of heavy duty nylon, meant to withstand years of use on the river

Rope is useful—and also dangerous

As with any tool, rope can be helpful but it can also introduce risk if used (or even carried) improperly. This throw bag should only be carried and used by those with training.

As with any quick-release system, you should be aware of a throw bag's proper use, frequently practice releasing and always be sure to thread the belt properly. Position the quick release toggle on your side (not front) so you can easily release it, even if you are folded over by the current.

Boreal River Rescue takes no responsibility for any injury, damage, or loss related to the use of this throw bag. The rope is not meant for repelling, vertical rescue or any applications at height due to polypropylene's low melting point.
