Hyperlite Mountain Gear River Rescue Throw Bag

Lightweight throw bag with integrated waist bag. The throwline is made of core-sheath construction for better grip and increased tear strength in special rescue situations as well as regular personal rescue, material saving and other guying jobs. 467 g


The HMG River Rescue Throw Bag is another throwline bag that attracts attention due to its low weight as well as its integrated waist bag. The throwing rope of the HMG Throw Bag is made from a water-repellent core/sheath construction. This makes it heavier, but ensures a better grip and it can also be used in technical rescues (with pulleys, HMS and abseiling equipment). 

A throw bag is the most important rescue device of any boater. For white water enthusiasts it is indispensable. Such safety equipment is the life line to your partner, similar to a rope team in the mountains. It should always be worn close to the body in order to be ready to hand as quickly as possible in dangerous situations.

Detached from the integrated waist bag, it enables you to reach, tow and rescue swimmers in the current. Most important if stuck in a hole or under a low bridge. Typically it is used to safeguard at difficult steps.

Features

  • Bags made from Dyneema® Composite Fabric hybrid materials
  • Easy quick-throw system, with throw bag inside outer waist bag
  • High-visibility inner throw bag with enhanced flotation
  • Sewn drain hole grommets on inner and outer bag
  • Draw string closures with cord locks

A throw bag however is also a multifunctional item. It can be used as a clothesline to dry your wet paddling cloths, to wire your tent/tarp, store your food bear proof or for abseiling material. On any trip a rope is useful in many ways. 

Please note: The use of a throwbag should be learned and practised. There are many instructions on the web and even specific courses.
